During World War II, he was a truck driver in the 152nd Regiment, 38th Infantry Division, U.S. Army which participated in the campaigns for New Guinea and the Philippines. His personal awards include the Bronze Star, Good Conduct Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge. Mr. Alexander was well known as a highly successful fisherman, and also a mechanic for outboard motors and small engines. He was also an avid reader. He was preceded in death in 1998 by his first wife of 52 years, Virginia Lee Lightsey Alexander. In 2002, he married Sarah Shuman of Pembroke. They lived at her home there until separated by illness in 2007. Mr. Alexander was the son of the late Allen Lovette Alexander Sr. and Susie Mae Stubbs Alexander.
