Growing up in West End, Alex attended Vineland Elementary School and he graduated from Pinckney High School, and later attended Mt. Olive College.  Shooting pool gained Alex the nickname, “Pool Shark”.  He was very skilled at handling a pool stick.

In 1979, Alex married Gail London and they were blessed with one child, Alexia.

Following his military career, he was employed by the North Carolina Department Of Public Safety in McCain, North Carolina, from which he also retired.
