I grew up in Herminie along with Alex and his family. We were friends throughout the years and rode BMWs with the Pittsburgh BMW Owners. We also belonged and worked on classic cars with the Pharoahs. Car Club. Before retiring I saw him weekly at his garage. Alex was one of a kind, we will miss him. Our prayers go out to his family... Gary and Lorraine Hoffman
