"...Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on...they can rest from their labors, because their deeds follow them.” Revelations 14:13
On March 6, 2018 our beloved Dad, Grandpa, brother and friend, James T. (Jim) Alexander, Sr. was called by the angels to put aside his earthly work and rest from his labors.
Jim was born in Buie, NC on October 6, 1927 to William L. and Bessie Turlington Alexander. He was preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Geraldine "Jeri" Bradshaw Alexander. He was also preceded in death by sisters, Anne Langis, Edna Poole, Sally Langis and brother William "Bill" Alexander.
He is survived by a daughter, Patricia (Pat) Alexander of Wallace, NC; a son Jim (Jimbo) Alexander, Jr. and wife Sherri of Wilmington, NC; grandchildren, Brad Alexander and wife Morgan of Wilmington, NC; Jamie Poole and husband Dylan of Dayton, OH and Rebekah Alexander of WIlmington, NC. His grandchildren have been a source of great pride and family devotion for Jim. His family continued to grow in the past year with the addition of two great grandsons, Dylan (D. J.) Poole, Jr. and Thomas Stevens. He is also survived by a sister, Lois Austin of Raeford NC and brothers Tom Alexander of Edmunds, WA and Bob Alexander of Dublin, GA and his much loved friend and companion, Marie Davis of Wallace, NC.
Jim was an active member of Wallace Presbyterian Church. He was also a member of Wallace Masonic Lodge #279. He retired as a supervisor for J. P. Stevens and from Pender County Department of Corrections.
A memorial service will be held at Wallace Presbyterian Church on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 2:00 pm. Visitation will be in the Church Fellowship Hall one hour prior to the service at 1:00 pm. At other times, the family will receive friends at his residence, 505 West Westbrook Street, Wallace. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Masonic Home For Children, 600 College Street, Oxford, NC 27565.

Mr. Jim was truly the nicest person I have ever known and a dear friend. A true Christian who loved others unconditionally. I am a better person for having known him and blessed to have been his friend. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

He and his wife were special people. My daughter, Jane Caroline spent many afternoons with them filling up bird feeders and watching the hummingbirds. They were as good as it gets.
