Please accept my sincere belated condolence for Alex recent passing. My dad always spoke highly of Alex & Don & their families. Like many of the departed Coombs clan Alex was taken away too soon. He is now with the angels in heaven. Take comfort in his many memories. RIP!

Dulcie & family so very sorry to hear of Alex’s passing weather has stopped us from visiting the funeral home but be assured our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this most difficult time …..Take comfort in your beautiful memories….

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of our 150 RCAFA Wing After Five Dinner colleague. Alex was an After Five Dinner team member for many years and served as the Team’s esteemed treasurer. His membership contributed not only to the management of the Team’s finances but equally importantly enhanced each dinner with his unique sense of humor and ensured that each meal was enjoyed with a smile. The thoughts and prayers of each After Five team member are with the family at this difficult time.
