Guy F. Alexander Jr moved to his eternal home on Thursday, August 15, 2019. Guy, better known as Sonny or Skeets by family and friends, was born to Orpha Shumaker Alexander and Guy F. Alexander on March 26, 1932.
He graduated from Middletown High School in 1950. He entered the U.S. Navy shortly after graduation and served honorably for four years as a Dental Tech. He married his high school sweetheart, Margaret House Alexander, on December 20, 1953.
He is survived by their three children, Vickie Pitts, (Paul), Diane McQuillen, (Richard), and Richard Alexander, (Victoria). He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by siblings, Geneva Palmer, Kathryn Lease, Margaret Snoots, Winifred Summers, and Frederick Alexander. He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Middletown for over 50 years and served faithfully as a youth counselor, council member, financial secretary, and steeple bell ringer.
Guy made his living as a Design Engineer, having received his degree from ICS. He enjoyed playing golf, gardening, hunting, and working on old cars, but his biggest love was his family. He faithfully attended their sports events, graduations, weddings, baptisms, and all the milestones of their lives and he was dearly loved and will be missed by all. We’d like to extend heart felt thanks to his wonderful caregivers, Mercy, Ella, Kate, and Mary, and his hospice team. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Zion Lutheran Church, 107 West Main Street, Middletown, MD 201769 or Hospice of Frederick County, P.O. Box 1799, Frederick, MD 21702.
