September 20, 1951 - October 6, 2013


Born September 20, 1951 in Warwickshire, England, died October 6, 2013 in Victoria, BC.  Survived by his loving wife Sue of 39 years, sons, Mike (Michelle), Bryce and daughter Kelcie (John), grandsons, Spencer and Ben and 2 other grandchildren on the way.  Also survived by many other family members and his special friend Lee.  Alex enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, camping and travel and he was looking forward to their new west coast get away.  He also played baseball and hockey for many years and especially enjoyed coaching his children in these sports.  He loved his years of working on the booms and also for Praxair.  He always counted his blessings, loved his family and friends and always had a smile for everyone.
