He graduated from Central High School in 1971. He was a proud owner of Alexander Trucking and later continued his passion for driving and fondness for the elderly by delivering medicine and medical supplies to nursing facilities throughout Ohio.
He wanted top shelf of everything including the latest model cars, fashion, motorcycles and was well known for driving Mack trucks. He enjoyed going to the racetrack and racing his Camaro and motorcycle.
His sociable personality lit up any room. He did not know any strangers. His bright smile and infectious laughter would command attention. He was known for giving everyone nick names and often he did not remember their real name. Each nick name he assigned had a meaning behind it.
He made lasting imprints on all those who knew him with his giving, fun-loving, outgoing personality and determination to live life to the fullest on his terms. He wanted the best or nothing at all. He believed in working hard to get what you want. He made no apologies for being who he was. He loved his family and friends. We will cherish all the memories and time he spent here with us.
Family will receive friends Friday, February 7, 2020 at 11:00 am until time of service at 12:00 pm at the Chapel of White's. Interment Glen Rest Memorial Estates.
