As a poster on MarketForum since around 2001, I knew Alex for many years. Always top notch professionalism and neutrality as a moderator. Alex made over 1,000 friends while he was at the helm of MarketForum, all of them wishing it were for longer.
Flawless with his grammar and spelling.........expected of course, from a journalist/writing for Reuters for decades.
Got to know him better in his last few years as he tried to convince me to become moderator. He traveled the world and had many interesting stories. His major in college was geography and he was captain and best player on his rugby team.
He worshiped Kate and we got to know her from some of his reports about her bridge playing on MarketForum.
It's been over a year now. Very tough year for Kate to lose her soul mate and perfect match so suddenly. We still miss Alex too.
