Member Spotlight: Alex

February 22, 2019

A regular member at the North Rutherford Family YMCA, Alex will turn 98 this fall. He has been a member for 12 years and still visits us three days a week.

Alex and his wife of 53 years relocated to Murfreesboro with Samsonite, where he retired after 33 years. When his wife passed in 2002, he and a close family friend Mary began a courtship at the Y. They enjoyed spending time together and laughing with each other in the aquatics area. Alex and Mary continued their friendship for many years until she passed away a few years back.

Alex took pride in driving himself to the Y up until last year and now has the pleasure of being driven to the Y by his daughter. He enjoys the friends he’s made, the hot tub, and a good cup of coffee.

Alex says his takeaway for a long life is living moderately with his cat, Squeaker, and keeping active at the Y.
