Alex was a fine human being, always a pleasure to see at work. He is sorely missed by those who know him from the Reno VA. I will miss my friend. My deepest condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Brother.

So very sorry to hear of the tragic passing of Alexander. We had read of the health care staff at the Reno VA who succumbed to the Corona virus, and are shocked to read that Alexander was one of those. Our heartfelt condolences to Lida and his family. There were a number of occasions when I saw Alexander when I would go to the doctor at the East Campus of the VA Medical Center where here worked for a time. In my brief contact with him as he did his work as a phlebotomist there, he was a most gracious and obviously very decent man. He will be greatly missed by the church in Sparks, and by his friends and co-workers at the VA Medical Center where he gave his life in the service of providing health care to veterans. There is no more dedicated service than that.

May Lord our God welcome the soul of his servant into his kingdom and may he give his family, Matushka Maria, his son Alexander and his mother Lydia the courage and the strength necessary to support this departure. May his memory be eternal.
