  1. Alex was a good neighbor and friend. He was very giving and appreciative. He was known for his love of peanut butter and hatred of cheese. He would often drop off popsicles or donuts for my daycare kiddos. He was a sweet man who will be missed!

  2. Remember telling us to hit the “rain locker” when we were kids 🙂 Not sure how many may know it was ‘take a shower’. We came full circle at the end. I’ll miss you.
