Quietly passed away at home in Somerdale on February 18, 2013 at the age of 70.
Alex was rarely without a book in hand, the Barron’s newspaper and the Wall Street Journal. His beloved grandparents, Frank and Marie Sherrer, encouraged his love of reading and education when he was a child.

He was the loving brother of Patricia (Richard) Woodland, Joseph (Jackie), Ann (Charles) Adams, the late Frances and the late Suzanne. He attended Gloucester Catholic High School (class of 1961) and St. Joseph’s University (class of 1966). He worked as a stockbroker with Walston & Co. in Philadelphia for many years.
He is survived by his children Patricia and Jennifer Roche and their mother Barbara, Alexis Chen, Justin and Matthew and their mother Carole. He also leaves behind 6 grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of Kennedy Hospital and Laurel Manor Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center.
