July 29, 1946 - May 22, 2021

It is with sorrow that we announce Alex's passing on Saturday, May 22, 2021.
Alex will be forever missed and remembered by his wife Linda and his four children, Jeffrey, Jason (Heather), Douglas (Dena), Kimberly (Jamie), and 10 grandchildren, James, Julia, Joseph, Avery, Hannah, Finley, Luc, Will, Shea and Emery. He was predeceased by his father Anthony and his mother Mary Hrabrovsky. Alex leaves behind his two half sisters, Lana (Peter) Ingram and Raya Shields.
Alex had professional careers with Department of Fisheries and National Defence where he retired. Alex loved watching his children take part in whatever sport/activity it may have been. For the most part Alex was a private person and would not want much written about him. What mattered to him was his family and his pets.

Dad we miss you and love you very much
and hope you hear us,
when we tell you that everyday.

  • Dear Linda and family, I have so many childhood memories of your home. It was always a busy, welcoming and fun place with filled with kids and pets (I still remember trying to avoid Ranger's massive tail!). Congratulations on making a home filled with the things that Alex loved. I will always remember it and you fondly! Love, Stacy - Posted by: Stacy Cardigan Smith (Neighbour ) on: Jun 12, 2021

  • Linda and family, How saddened I was to hear that Alex has died. I remember living next door in our first years in Canada and the happy family who lived in that house......and of course there have been moments of meeting through the years. Alex was indeed a family person and so genuine. You must miss him dreadfully, I know. My deepest sympathy.

  • Alex and I have been friends for 11 years. He is one of the great guys that you meet through your life, briefly, but they make an impact. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your husband and father. Larry - Posted by: larry Adelman (Friend) on: Jun 07, 2021

  • My condolences to the Arnold family. I got to know Alex in 1963 at St. Johns HS. As I worked at the Main & Luxton Safeway, he asked me if I could get him a job there that spring. I got him in as part time bagger there. That summer I worked FT on south side for Safeway and when I came back in the fall, Alex had moved on. Rest in Peace. - Posted by: Colin Dederick (school friend) on: Jun 06, 2021

  • Oh Linda. At the moment I am trying to catch my breath. Feel like I have had the wind knocked out of me. I am so sorry. I will remember Alex's rye wit with a smile. As a member myself, I know "the widow's club" has a terrible entrance fee. Sincerely Debbie - Posted by: Debbie Winterburn (Friend) on: Jun 05, 2021

  • I worked with Alex in Air Command Civilian Personnel for many years and considered him a friend. Yes he was a quiet, rather private person but kind and genuine and it was obvious his family meant the world to him. Our sincere condolences to Linda and family.
