Sharon, Bob and family,
We are very sorry to hear of Alex passing. I have many fond memories, as a child, spending many enjoyable times on the MacDowell farm. Kim and I, remember the good times we had, with Mary and Alex at the Red Deer Hill Farm with my mom and dad. Alex was a very accomplished man. May he rest in peace.
Julie and Kim Pearman.

Dear Sharon, Bob and family,

We extend our prayers and deepest condolences on Alex's passing. He was an exceptional church greeter and was the first parishioner we met at the Ukrainian Catholic Parish of St. George long ago. He served the parish in various capacities for many years in an outstanding way. It was always our great pleasure to meet with and have a conversation with Alex. He usually had an interesting story or two to share with a big smile on his face. Everlasting Memory.

Sincerely,
Harold & Nadia Trafananko
