Alex was educated in Wilmington Public Schools System. After completing PS Dupont High School, he attended Job Corp in Harpers Ferry, WV. It was there he received his trade as a painter and became certified. Upon completion, he worked as a painter for several paint companies, in which he served for over 40 years, and for Amtrak.
Alex had an infectious smile and pleasant attitude that seem to get him into trouble. He was also kind, funny, giving, and a loving son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He enjoyed life to the fullest, and spending time with family and friends.
In addition to his mother, Alex was preceded in death by two brothers: Sylvester and Kendall.
