On December 13, 2023 we bid farewell to Alex in his 87th year. He died at home as was his wish. Son of the late Andrew and Anna, brother to the late George and Ann, beloved husband to the late Irene and father to Arlene, Donna and Daryl.

He grew up in Hamilton and moved to Binbrook with Irene to raise his family. He operated a small hobby farm with chickens, cows and a pony. Alex worked as a car mechanic at Hamilton Motor Products before becoming a welding and technical teacher at Orchard Park Secondary school. He had a calm and laid back approach to everything in life. Anyone who met him enjoyed his witty remarks and humor.

He loved warm climates and sunshine, especially in Costa Rica where he would enjoy walking the beach and stopping at a beach bar for a cerveza or rum and pepsi.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place in the spring at the Dundas Air Force club. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to Hamilton food share
