Son of Marca who resided in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania.

Alexander served as a Seaman Second Class, U.S.S. Juneau (CL-52), U.S. Navy during World War II.

The Juneau, once dawn broke, then tried to return to Espiritu Santo for repairs along with the battle damaged U.S.S. Helena and U.S.S.

He was awarded the Purple Heart.
