Henry Alexander was born on September 28, 1935 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama the son of Henry Alexander, Sr. and Lucy Mullens. Henry was a great man who wholeheartedly loved his family. He was a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Henry attended Saginaw Public Schools as a child and after he completed his education, he went on to work for General Motors Nodular Casting Iron Plant as a General Foreman where he later retired. He had two hobbies that he loved, fishing and golfing. Golfing became his favorite hobby and after he retired, he spent most of his time swinging a golf club at the Green Acres Golf Course or The Sawmill Golf Club where he held memberships. So much can be said about a man who meant so much to his family. HE will forever hold the title of “World’s Best Dad and Granddad.” He cared for his family in a way that cannot be explained in words. We will always remember his “Smile”, the question; “What you know good?”, and the candy jar of Werther Originals.
