A number of us remember making good friends with Alex on a high school sponsored cross country bus trip back in the late 60's. Alex was always full of adventure - racing around in his Mustang, riding the incoming waves near the entrance of Tamales Bay and chasing jack rabbits across Mendocino fields at midnight - those are the things I recall doing with Alex. He taught me to deal with fear.
