Theodore Roosevelt Alexander Jr., 90, of Townsend, Georgia entered peacefully into the arms of his Lord and Savior Thursday, May 21, 2020 with his family by his side at his residence.

Theodore was born July 18, 1929 in Brooklyn, New York the son of the late Theodore Roosevelt Alexander Sr. and the late Clara Batterman Alexander. He was also preceded in death by his son Milton P. Alexander; also a brother, Robert Alexander.

Theodore served his country with honor in the United States Army. After his Honorable Discharge, he still wanted to serve his fellow man and became employed with the United States Postal Service as a Rural Mail Carrier in the Townsend community. He retired with the postal service after thirty years of faithful employment. He was a member of the Live Oak Lodge #137 F. & A.M. since 1955 in Darien, Georgia. Theodore was a humble and faithful man to his Lord and held several positions within Townsend Baptist Church. He was the Sunday School Superintendent, Treasurer, and the Chairman of The Deacons. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Left to cherish his memories are his loving wife of sixty-eight years, Cora Lee Alexander of Townsend, GA; his daughter, Reta J. Alexander also of Townsend, GA; a sister, Gladys Alexander of Wauchula, Fl. Also left to cherish his memories are three grandchildren, Eric Grissino (Angela), Brandy Davis and Katherine Corvelli (Joe), four great grandchildren, Kyle Davis, Cassidy Davis, Micah Grissino, and Piper Grissino, and several nieces and nephews.

A private family Graveside service to pay tribute to a life well lived will be held Monday, May 25, 2020 in Davis Cemetery at 11:00 AM with his grandson, Pastor Eric Grissino officiating the service. Also his brother-in-law David Riddle will sing The Old Rugged Cross.

Ted, as he was affectionately called, loved to spend time with his family and friends. He was a kind hearted man that loved people. He was a dedicated Christian that read his Bible avidly and later in life he enjoyed listening to the Audio Bible. He also enjoyed observing God’s beautiful outdoors while he was fishing.
