He was a construction worker, jackhammer operator, truck driver, taxi driver, security guard, hobbyist, and a carpenter/handyman.
Despite health challenges, Alex was always willing to give a helping hand within the community, recycling, playing pool/billiards, gambling, playing cards games and checkers, watching sports games, fishing, gardening, playing bingo, listening or singing country music, watching war movies and joking with family and friends.
Alex was a husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, cousin, uncle, nephew and friend. He is predeceased by his wife Julie; his granddaughter Twyla May Dyck; his parents William and Francis Vewcharuk; his brothers James, Samuel, and John; and his sisters Annie, Lena and Margret (Elsie).
