To the family, during this very sad time, please continue to lean on the "God of All comfort" 2nd COR 1:3-4.
I happened on to this obit by accident. I was looking for a different person. I am a cousin to Jimmy. I remember him from the Alexander Family Reunions at Buffalo Gap Texas many years ago. I am sorry to hear of his death and wish the family my sympathy.
My condolences to the family...I too worked with Jumbo ..what a joy he was.
I met Mr. Jim Alexander about 45 years ago when he moved his family to Merle street a few houses down from where I lived. He was ALWAYS a kind and helpful neighbor. The world is a little bit worse off now that he is no longer with us. I remember when I was about 17 and got my first car (an old 1956 Ford Fairlane). I had jacked the car up to change the oil. I was under the car, held up by an unstable bumper jack. Mr. Jim Alexander came over and insisted I place jack stands under the car, and I of course did so to appease him. I was young and very foolish, and he quite possibly saved my life. I'll never forget his many acts of kindness and friendly helpfulness. Sterling and Jan, I'm so sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
To the Alexander Family,
I met Jimmy about 10-years ago at the Pasadena Masonic Lodge and each time we would see each other there we had lots of wonderful and meaningful conversations. I remember them as if we had them yesterday. I will miss them and him. I Truly Enjoyed Calling Him Brother Alexander. My Prayers are with Him and The Alexander Family, Condolences to Each of You. Sincerely – Rick Pena
