  2. Had the privilege to meet and spend time with you and it was my privilege. I wish I could have gotten to see you again in person. But I will later.

  3. Jacqueline, Jeremy, Camille, Kathleen and Family;

    Alison and I wanted to send our deepest condolences at the loss of Alex. While we did not get to spend a lot of time with Alex during the time we did spend he was always a pleasure to be with. I know he was a caring and thoughtful brother and father. A true gentlemen.

    Alison and I loved the idea of dedicating trees in remembrance of Alex. We have decided to plant two new apple trees out front to be dedicated to Alex. Each spring when they bloom and each fall when they change color we will think of Alex and the happiness he brought to all those he loved.

  8. Alex, we met almost 40 years, you and your family became my family when I lived in Houston. All of you will always be in my heart. Fly high dear friend. 😘🙏🏻

  9. “The minute I moved next door to Alex he invited me over for a drink on his bench and told me straight out “you know, you paid too damn much for that house!” 
    …..Well , I appreciated his straightforwardness even when it stung a bit; I think its because he always did a little laugh after he said something like that , and I figured out quick it was just his thing!
    He wanted to say what was on his mind even if he knew it wouldn’t be to my liking or I might not agree with him, ….but he’d give a little laugh to try and lighten it up after & I liked that about him!
    Throughout the years we enjoyed more drinks on the bench, my front porch & I got lots of knocks on my door -& there was Alex with his colorful swim trunks on, inner tube over his shoulder & a gin and tonic in a big jug asking me to take him up River!  Ha, No phone call first cause he knew I couldn’t say no to him standing there in his swim trunks , his  inner tube and his jug! 
        I saw his family come into town often, his daughter move across the street and grandkids galore up and down the driveway many a weekend! 
    ….. now for  a man that keeps his house so tidy and everything in its place he always had a smile embracing all the chaos and kids running about and you just knew how much Alex was loved and appreciated by all of his family! ….And how much he loved them too. 
       Yes, Alex was a great neighbor , a friend and i’ll miss him “giving it to me straight” ….and his little laugh afterwards  too!”
