Alexander retired in 1976 from First National Bank, where he was vice president.
He was born Oct. 1, 1912, in Kinmundy to Fred G. and Pearl M. (Jackson) Alexander. He married Blanche A. Morfey on May 29, 1932, in Charleston. She survives.
Also surviving are two daughters, Margaret M. (and husband Robert) Doyle of Marion, Iowa, and Judith A. Katz of Lincoln; one son, David E. (and wife Sonnie) Alexander of Lincoln; six grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; one sister, Nelda Humphrey of Tampa, Fla.; and one brother, Xon Alexander of Elberton, Ga.
He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters and five brothers.
He was a resident of Lincoln since 1939. He was the manager at Sears Roebuck & Co. in Lincoln for a number of years before joining the First National Bank.
He was an active member of the Elks and Rotary clubs and served in several positions of leadership.
He was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Lincoln. He loved his Lord and his church, and his life has made a positive impact on the lives of those with whom he came in contact. A Scripture that meant much to him through the years is Romans 8:28: "And we know that all things work together for good, to them who are the called according to His purpose."
