What a remarkable man Alex was! He was always so cheerful when I saw him and loved nothing better than having you all around him! He never looked his age, I wish he'd shared his secret for looking so young! Thinking of you all at this difficult time. Leena Kennedy-Leena Kennedy
I only knew your Dad for a short time and enjoyed his birthday parties. I laugh cause he liked to hold the ladies hands. It is always hard losing a loved one but know that his 'tour of duty' has come to an end. Stand Easy Alex. MY condolences to the Boucher family.-Shelly Claus
Well done Alex, you lived a full and rewarding life. You always told me that you wanted to live long enough to break the CPP Plan, close to it my friend.
We are sorry to hear of his passing
may the Creator comfort his family as he was called home to a better place
As an MNO Vet I will always think fondly of our annual visits on Alex's birthday.

Our veterans carry an emotional burden that they seldom talk about. Thank you Alex for your service and caring for others. Your spirit is now free to be part of the heavenly music of Peace, Love and Understanding. May we all take the time to listen to the soft winds and lapping water that calm our souls. Thank you. R.I.P.-Daniel Shoebottom
We met Alex in Grundy Prov. Park in the early eighties and the stories he could tell! It was a wonderful honour to know this happy, smiling and handsome man! Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May you fly among the eagles! Rest In Peace Alex. Brenda, Mike, Matty and Kurtis Gauthier-Mike and Brenda Gauthier
Marilyn and Carol, extending our thoughts to your family members.
We never did get to go fishing but we talked about it a lot. Laughed at all the possibilities on the trip. It was an honour to have those visits and get to dance at Pow Wow in his recognition. Love to everyone.
