Deputy Alexander was actually survived by a wife, a daughter and a son. It was unfortunate that such a selfish individual would end the life of such a kind, caring, good man,

I’m also saddened that i was never given the opportunity to know my father.

Deputy Alexander was my father. Rest In Peace dad...
