A giving, charitable and compassionate man Alexander or “Al” as many affectionately called him, was continuously willing to give unto others both in his professional life as a contractor and in his personal life as well. Never compromising on quality, “doing it right” and presenting true artisan work, Alex exemplified what it was to be a genuine craftsman, to be emulated by many whom he heartened and impacted. He was highly skilled in all types of flooring installation, kitchen and bathroom renovations, custom additions and custom artisan work for specialty residential, commercial and industrial work. This is in addition to his uncanny ability to reverse engineer and repair plumbing, electrical, outboard engines, HVAC, internal combustion engines and countless more.
He gave Mary his wife of 24 years, four children and countless fun memories many of which were in Alton Bay, New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee. He loved playing his Gibson guitars and had an affinity for classic rock. Appointed deacon in his home church, his charitable nature continued for the church congregate and surrounding communities. Alex showed a genuine passion for the Christian faith as exemplified by his benevolence towards others and his nonjudgmental and humble nature. Alex treated everyone equally and allowed no pretense or gesturing.
Alex gave hope and joy to so many. He continuously left an impression on everyone whom he met. Dad, Al and Brother Kapolis as he was affectionately called, will be sorely missed. We take comfort knowing that he is in the presence of the Lord.
