Edward Alexander

Edward Alexander

Mr. Edward Haymon Alexander, 82, of Lockhart, passed away Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013. He was born on April 25, 1931.

Everyone knew him as Ed. His life was a true journey to say the least. Born during The Depression to a family of “share croppers”, he learned the value of a penny. Watching WWII as an adolescent he saw and learned patriotism. Earning his stripes in the Army during the Korean War and becoming a Golden Gloves boxer during his service time, he learned discipline.

Ed flew glider planes, worked in a crew pit under NASCAR in its infancy, built homes, cars, and owned a few businesses along the way.

He was a traveler of our country. He had children, grandchildren, and a great-grandchild, all who he loved unconditionally and with no prejudice.

At 56, Ed became ill and a spiritual journey began. A worldly man woke up to be a man possessed by the Holy Spirit.

He was a man of great compassion, passion, a sense of humor, and love. Ed Alexander was a man who lived in the history we read about in schoolbooks. He was a husband, a father, grandfather and great-grandfather; a hero, and an angel on Earth.

You are home now Ed.

Mr. Alexander is survived by: his wife, Dora Estella Rodriguez Alexander; children: Ross Alexander, Eric Alexander and wife, Shawnya Alexander, Edward Alexander, Jr, and wife, Brook Alexander, Elinda Alexander, Brian Alexander, and Ronnie Alexander; brothers: Earl Alexander, Jr., and Douglas Alexander; sister: Lunell Joyner; grandchildren: Mirinda Griffin, Landon Griffin, Ashley Berry, Randy Zoeller, Cecilia Alexander, Trinity Alexander, Ireland Alexander and Tyson Alexander; and great-grandaughter, Melody Brook Griffin.
