Alexander Forbes

It is with deep sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Alex on August 20, 2020 at 83 years of age. Loving father of Scott (Jo-Anne) and Glenn. Cherished grandpa of Haley (Micheal), Patrick, Daniel (Katy), Sarah and Sean. Dearest great-grandpa to Clark and Pierce. Former companion and life-long friend to Patricia. Beloved brother of Martha Mejia, Mary McArthur, Wilma Mazonne and Penny Hanlon. He will be sadly missed by his extended family in Scotland, Florida and Connecticut.

Retired in 1999 from Ford Motor Company after many years of service. Alex was an avid golfer with three Holes-in-One. He created many life-long friendships through his golf/pool leagues and Alcoholics Anonymous.

Special thanks to his neighbours on Baldwin for their continued assistance and support. If you so desire, donations to the Hiatus House or Alcoholics Anonymous would be appreciated by the family.

On Monday reservations and personal face coverings are required to attend visitation from 3-5pm and 7-9pm. On Tuesday reservations and personal face coverings are required to attend the Celebration of Life at Families First, 3260 Dougall Ave., South Windsor, 519-969-5841. at 11:30am

Uncle Alex! You will be deeply missed! It is surreal that this unexpected event has happened! We have always laughed in your presence and have always talked about you and your sayings! You are a blessing in disguise and Tony and I will miss your talks, story telling and visits. We love you always!

Uncle Alex, you will be missed dearly. I remember when we were young and coming to Canada to visit all the time. The singing, dancing, laughs, story's and those dang cigars (what I would give to smell one more time). Thank you for stepping in for the traditional father daughter dance for my dad. We will continue to tell all the stories to our own children, and grandchildren.
God speed, and give a big hug to my dad and Papa? Love, Karen
