published a tribute .
Alex a true old school gentleman who had a soft calm gentle voice and friendly demeanor.
I spent many days with him when he worked at Essex Water Company, I learnt much from Alex not only inTelecommunications but life too. What is his legacy ,,,,well multi talented man in so many areas but for me a kind caring compassionate man who had time for everyone, a kind word for all and a man who lived his life and loved his God. I had planned to visit this year sadly not to be . Rest well my Telecom chum it was a privilege to know you . David
