It is with a heavy heart that I am responding to the very sad news of the demise of our revered and much respected Rev. Bro. Alexander.
I maintained a regular line of communication with Bro. Alexander since I migrated to Canada ; he was a prolific writer with an impeccable knowledge of English.We exchanged news of our alma mater and other Rev. Brothers of his time.
The death of Rev. Bro. Alexander. a colossus in the Lasallian community will be mourned by Benedictines and old boys of several other schools where he taught with selfless dedication and instilled discipline which made them and us useful citizens of Society.
The demise of our much revered and greatly respected Rev.Bro.Alexander, leaves a void that will never be filled.
Dear Bro.Alexander is now in God’s loving care, a fitting reward for nearly 6 decades of laudable service in the Lasallian Vineyard.
God bless you Rev.Bro.Alexander – you will be missed beyond what words can ever adequately describe.
Let us remember our former mentor in our prayers.
