One of Alex’s best qualities was being a kind and loving husband, father, papa and friend. He was also a father figure to many of his “adopted children”. No one who entered his life ever went hungry or
homeless. He had many furry friends over the years that had the best lives of any animal you have ever seen. Alex will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
