The family moved to Cherryville, BC in 1974 where he was a member of Operating Engineers, worked for O’Hashi Brs. Logging, farmed his land and ran his own one-man sawmill. He retired in Lumby. In his spare time, Alex enjoyed his family, gardening and donating his vegetable crops to the Lumby Food Bank. Alex was predeceased by his parents, Peter and Kathrina; brothers, Nickolas and John; sisters, Helen and Doris. Alex is survived by his siblings: Dmytro, Marie, George, Steve, Peter and William. He will be loved and missed always by his wife, Betty; children: Daniel (Tina), Tara (Gary), Joseph (Loralea); grandchildren: Jason, Shanna, Patrick; great-grandchildren: Matayah, Shelby; numerous nieces, nephews and long-time friends. In lieu of flowers, to honour Alex’s genuine caring of others, please perform a random act of kindness or donate to your favourite charity. Many thanks to the staff at Gateby for their care and support in his final days.
