Um, if he was born in 1912, he would have been 100. If he was actually 94, he would have been born in 1918. Simple math people.
True...however, the story says he was born in 1917 (not 1912). Need glasses, maybe?
O.K. its not very important at this point. He has a life that should be celebrated. He truly was a wonderful man and lived a long and very special life. I for one is proud he lived in our lifetime. He really enjoyed every day for as many years as it was. I send love and hugs to the whole family and especally to his wife and true love. See you in September.
I knew Alex and his wife. He lived in Waverly Park. My wife and I always stopped to talk to them when we passed their home on our morning walks. I had no idea he was so talented and just recently connected with He and his wife when I saw their shop next to the CVS drugstore.
I remember him saying that he was in the Navy for six years during WWII as I spent the same time in the Marines. And he is from Pennsylvania as I am.I had no idea he was so old, he certainly looked and acted as a much younger person. I hope to attend the Celerbration of his life in Cuesta park.
I met Alex few years ago amd played single again him ...I can not believe I got a lesson not only tennis lesson but the attitude to have on the court...then played doubles...believe me you can be old but you can stay good.
I learn a good lesson ...Life lesson.. I will not forget Sally, his wife...I love her so much, nice lady ..she supported Alex with love and I am note sure we can find this truly love now...so true..so pure pefect couple
@Addition - very likely the Voice corrected that mistake after it was pointed out.
