S. Navy, in Washington D. C. where he was chosen by President George H. W. Bush to serve as Presidential Aide. During his 32-year Naval career, Mr. Alexander rose through the enlisted ranks, became a warrant officer and was ultimately commissioned and retired in 1993 at the rank of Lieutenant Commander. After retiring, he first lived in Orlando, Fla., then in Clay County for several years and finally settled in Oxford in 2009. Mr. Alexander is survived by his wife of 40 years, Laurie Alexander, of Oxford; three sons; three step-children; one sister, Linda Gayle Seidner, of Talladega and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
