Alex was born November 23, 1944 in Norwich, Connecticut to Alexander and Veronica Glinski.  He was a man of great faith and always had a joke for everyone and for every occasion. He would keep telling jokes to anyone he met until they were no longer a stranger; it was his goal to make people smile.

Alexander served in the United States Coast Guard for four years. He spent one year on Baffin Island above the Arctic Circle serving on a USCG Loran Station.  He then was transferred to Galveston where he met his “little Dutch treat” whom he married in 1970.  He retired after 28 years as a Switching Tech for GTE in Santa Fe.

Preceded in death by his parents and sister, Alvera Gauvin, he is survived by his loving wife of 37 years Corrie Glinski, daughter Louisa Renfrew-Hill and husband Justin; sons Wayne and wife Paula, John and wife Carol and grandchildren Aria and Gabriella Glinski.  Survivors also include nieces Teresa Lavoie, Linda Kincade and nephew Michael Gauvin. He also leaves behind numerous beloved extended family-in-law and friends.
