March 22, 1962 – February 18, 2012
Frank Patrick Alexander 49, died peacefully at his home, surrounded by family, after a courageous two year battle with cancer.
Preceded in death by father Charles Alexander, and survived by mother Lois (Richard) Patch, siblings Mike Alexander, Diane (George Schieferdecker) Alexander, Peter (Julie) Alexander, nieces Katie and Ann Alexander, Eloise Schieferdecker and nephew Alexander Schieferdecker.
Frank enjoyed sailing, fishing and hunting, and loved spending time at Big Birch and Leech Lake. Dogs were his treasured companions. His many friends enriched his all-too-short life.
