Alex was born September 29, 1919 in Montgomery, Alabama and grew up in Texas. He served in the United States Navy during World War II and remained in California following the war. Alex was a long time resident of Glendale and Burbank where he entered the arms of Jesus May 1, 2013 at the age of 93. He is survived by a brother, John Cargill, of Texas, two daughters, Nancy Choate of Colorado and Opal Lopez of California, several nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren and many close friends who were like family to him.
When he wasn’t working as an electrical engineer and consultant in the elevator/ escalator field Alex loved golf, travel, surfing on the computer and reading. His great sense of humor and positive attitude endeared him to family and friends.
It was his request that no memorial service be held at his passing, so the family is honoring his wishes. His life will be honored by the memories that friends and loved ones will share among themselves and with others.
