Passed away, March 29th, 2013, peacefully after a brave struggle with Leukemia and Kidney failure. He will be remembered lovingly by his wife of 56 years Carmen, his son Bill and daughter Carrie. He also was a very special Grandfather to Michelle and Stephen and father in law to Louise (Langlois). Alex was by far one of the most talented Carpenters and artist on Vancouver Island and will be remembered forever. His ashes will be spread over Mt. Washington (Comox, British Columbia) where he retired as one of the oldest Ski patrollers. As a retired Armed Forces W.O. a small ceremony will be held at the Legion in Comox. He will be missed by everyone who had the good fortune to meet him, we love you Alex.
