A former US Marine, David Alexander died alone in a house fire of smoke inhalation late on the evening of Thursday, June 22 at the age of 53. He was previously employed as a heavy-equipment operator at Cody's Grading in York for 15+ years. Unmarried and with no children he was survived by his mother.

Penniless and homeless at the time of his death, his former co-workers at Cody's Grading and community members donated funds for his burial. Area former Marines stepped forward to offer assistance. His cemetery plot was donated by the Yorkville Cemetery Association and his headstone was donated by a local monument business.

A burial account in Alexander's name was set up at a local bank and any money left over will be used to start a fund for others who die without the means for burial.
