Alex will always be remembered by Bev's children, Mark (Monica), Jan, Diane (Joe), Matt (Sue) and his many close friends as a happy man full of stories about his escapades.

He enjoyed so many interesting careers from print advertising to pig farmer to Graphic Arts Coordinator at Niagara College to editor and publisher of the Mount Albert Community Communicator newspaper which is still in circulation today.

Alex was a creator of beautiful things. He was a self-taught artist, lithographer, inventor, website developer, and musician. He accomplished anything he set his mind to like buying a sailboat and then teaching himself how to sail or buying a pig farm and learning how to castrate a pig.

The family would like to thank all those involved in his care, Carolyn from CCAC who was instrumental in arranging his timely placement at St. Peter's; the staff in the Palliative Unit, for so many individual contributions of great importance to Alex's quality of life in the final weeks, including nurses Dorothy, Kristen, Tyler, and Nicole and private care from Bayshore PSWs who spent nights with Alex, especially Sandra for her calming effect. Too many names and actions to mention, but all appreciated.

As per his final wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be a private family service.
