Alexander Charles Buchanan
With a tear in my eye and a smile on my face, I say goodbye
to my greatest partner, Alexander Buchanan on Wednesday, January 16,
2019. Born on May 3, 1944, he was the son of the late
Alexander and Elizabeth (Cole) Buchanan and loving husband of Dianne
Alexander was a man of fun music, an outdoor enthusiast, he
like to hunt and fish. He also loved to play Bingo, and when
he no longer could play, he would come along and colour. He
was a great Firefighter, retiring as Captain after a 33 year
career. He loved his job and his team, who worked hard to
accomplish the best results.
Alexander had two sons, Todd (Angie) and Derek and a
grandson, Alexander. His family also consisted of two
brothers, Dan (Mary) and Wayne (Azelda); a sister-in-law Gloria, as
well as several nieces and nephews.
Alexander and I travelled a lot with many great friends and
family, the memories of which I will cherish forever. I was
not just his wife but his companion and his care giver. I
will never regret one day of his care. I am grateful for my
neighbours who watched over him as he loved to walk outside in the sun
and just smile. In addition to his parents, he was
predeceased by a brother Tom and his in-laws.
I would like to thank the staff of White Rapids Manor Nursing
Home for their care and compassion during these difficult
