Alex was born in Clovis NM on October 23, 1953. His childhood was spent in Gretna, VA, Bethany WV, and Greenville NC. Alex was graduated from Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham VA where he was valedictorian.

He enjoyed a long and varied career, teaching high school English in North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida, practicing law in Warsaw, VA, and teaching English and legal classes at Strayer University and Virginia State University. He authored the textbook The Art and Science of Business Writing.

Alex was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, camping, fishing, and boating. He always had at least one book he was reading and he created many wonderful culinary delights. He converted to the Catholic Church later in life and was an involved member of St. John Neumann’s Catholic Church. From hiking the Appalachian Trail to living in Russia, he enjoyed life to its fullest.
