Alex was an independent person who enjoyed adventure and travelling. One would never know when he might knock on the door, or call from some city thousands of miles away. He would tell of his experiences on the open roads, many which would worry those who listened. His care free personality was tempered with a sense of responsibility towards those who needed his help, Alex moved to Winnipeg from San Jose, California, he enjoyed laughing with family and friends.
