He was inducted into the inaugural hall of fame class at Somerset High School. Upon graduation he attended Michigan University on an academic scholarship and earned an engineering degree.

Alex enjoyed spending time with his family including his 4 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. He loved attending his children’s sporting events, working outdoors, playing music with his friends, vacationing with his wife, and coaching. While living in Boxford he coached little league and pony league baseball and girls’ softball. He eventually coached the first Boxford/Topsfield American Legion team.
