ALEXANDER Robert Scott Alexander, 80, of Canal Winchester, Friday, January 11, 2013 at Mount Carmel East Hospital. Born to the late Leonard and Thelma Alexander of Wooster, Scott was a graduate of Wooster High School and the Ohio State University School of Agriculture. Farming was an important part of his life.

After retiring, Scott worked as a substitute teacher in a number of local school districts, where the kids affectionately called him, "Mr. Al". He also volunteered with the Fairfield County Sheriff's Community Watch Program. During the holidays, Scott took great pride in playing the part of Santa Claus throughout the community.
