Alex lived his faith in Jesus. He accepted Christ as Saviour at 12 and was baptized into Port Rowan (Ont.) MB Church at 16. Alex and Elva married in Winkler, Man., in 1956. They sang together in churches and at various functions. Alex loved the church, serving as choir leader, song director, church board member, and Sunday school teacher. He also served the local chapter of the Christian Businessmen’s Association. Alex was an egg producer and farmer growing vegetables and cash crops. When he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, he remained cheerful, trusting his Saviour for daily grace. Although Alex was vaccinated, exposure to COVID-19 led to his death. Alex’s favourite song was “Channels Only”: this hymn was his prayer and desire.
