August 14th 1936- June 15th 2007
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Alex, at the age of 70.
Survived by his sons Geoff (Elaine), Michael and David, brothers John and Frank, sister Mary (Armand) Trottier-his guardian angel who was devoted to his care throughout his illness, granddaughter Taylor, as well as his extended family and friends. He is predeceased by his brother Stan.
Born in South Wellington, B.C, Alex lived his entire life in and around Ladysmith. He started work as a longshoreman in 1962 until he retired in 1998 and was a past president of Loc #508 ILWU. After retiring, Alex greatly enjoyed his morning coffee outings with his ex-coworkers and friends. His favorite pastimes were the ocean, prospecting and exploring the mountains.
A celebration of life will be held for all members, family and friends on Wednesday, June 27th, 2007 at 2.00pm at The Eagles Hall, Ladysmith, B.C. Flowers gratefully declined.
