Alex worked as a train dispatcher for CP Rail for more than 40 years. He was a faithful hockey fan for the Vernon Vipers. Alex was a contributing member of the #3557 Fraternal Order of Eagles and Elks Lodge #45 of Vernon, BC.

Alex and his wife Patricia were married in 1951 and were married for 52 years before she passed away. They were both ‘young souls’ through their journey in life. His grandchildren were a joy to him. He often played a game of tag with them and his daughter remembers fondly him shouting “LAST TAG!”

God saw the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb

So He closed your weary eyelids

And whispered, “Peace be thine”
