  1. Barbara,
    My prayers for you and Alex’s family are with you. Alex is a great guy, and has been since our days on Atwell Street. Many good memories, especially of the famous tree.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Barb and your family. Alex was an inspiration to many and a great man. He will be missed .

  3. So sorry to hear the news. It was my honor to work with Alex at Monroe County for 6 years. Personally, I learned a great deal from the example he set. Alex’s dedication to his work and his community were unparalleled. We are all better off today because of him.

  4. ‘Time ends’¦memories last’
    We may have known Alex the least of all who shared in his beloved
    life, but he greatly impacted ours the most. We are forever grateful.

    Love and miss you Alex,
    Stephen and Lisa McGarrity

  5. I’m saddened by the loss of Alex, yet I had to smile at all the good memories of he and Colleen at our house for dinners, working on his county clerk campaign, and so many monroe county memories…. he was highly regarded in the county office building!
    He never complained of his health issues, making the best of an unpleasant illness, I’m sure with the help and love of his wife Barbara.
    Rest in Peace, Alex.

  6. Dear Barb, I am so sorry to hear of your husband’s death. May he enjoy his heavenly reward. Know that you are in my prayers. If there is anything I can do to support you just give me a call. God bless you dear friend, Aliece (Thompson) Franklin.

  7. I am sorry your dear loved one fell asleep in death. My sincere condolences to all of you. Please, take comfort in knowing that soon, Our Creator has promised to remove all causes of suffering, pain, sorrow, and even death forever! (Revelation 21:3-5 ; 1 Corinthians 15:26) May you be comforted by these promises, as you gain the strength and inner peace to cope with the very difficult days ahead.-Philippians 4:6,7.

  8. My thoughts are with all of you as you say a final goodbye to Al. He was so young, but suffered so much. Utilized the old DiPasquale perseverance to stay here with those he loved on Earth as long as possible. I recently read a book called Proof of Heaven — Al most definitely is now joining Harriet.

  9. I serve as a technical resource for the Irondequoit Bay Coordinating
    Committee, and, while I never met Alex personally, I am very aware of and
    grateful for the visionary work on the environment that he led during his
    tenure as Deputy County Executive. The residents of Monroe County and the users of Irondequoit Bay and Creek as a place to live, fish, boat, or just look upon enjoy the quality of the environment that exists today in great part due to Alex’s public service, documented in places like the ‘Water Quality Management Plan for the Irondequoit Bay Watershed’ and the ‘Management Measures for Irondequoit Bay’ that continue to inform water quality planning and action to this day. Alex’s family and friends can be proud of these accomplishments. I offer my sincere sympathy and sadness at your loss.

  10. Alex worked with me for a period of time at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office for Sheriff Meloni. He was a real gentleman with an outstanding reputation. God Bless Alex and his family.

  11. My Uncle Al was one of the smartest, strongest souls I’ve ever known. He inspires me every day to make the best of every circumstance and to be thankful for what I have. We love and miss him.
