DDavid Lloyd Alexander was born to the union of Lucille and James Alexander on December 30, 1956 in Columbus, Ohio. He departed from life on November 17, 2019.

David graduated from West High School and attended The Ohio State University. He worked as a nurse’s aide and often did volunteer work for the Salvation Army.

David will be truly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.

    To Mr. Robert Alexander and Family:

    Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your
    God; I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with
    my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

    I was so saddened to hear about the passing of your brother and loved one, Mr. David Alexander. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

    It is never easy to lose someone you love, and I know there is a great emptiness left by his passing. The Poem of Life says, “Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what’s to be, a resting place along the road, to sweet eternity.” My prayer is that the strength of the love you shared with David and each other will get you through this difficult time. In addition, May the outpouring of love you have received since David’s parting serve as a reminder of how much he was loved by all who knew him.

    Revelations 21:4 reads, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

    When you feel sad just remember that your hearts will always be connected. May God bless and comfort you.

    To the family of David Alexander,
    I ran into David only a couple of weeks before his passing. I did not know until now that he had gone home to be with the Lord. He was a good friend. He loved the Lord and was a wonderful servant of God. He will be sorely missed.

    I was sorry to hear of the passing of David.
    The old Negro spiritual says it all, ” No more weeping and wailing, Gone home to live with God”
    May he rest in peace.
