ALEXANDER, ROBERT - Oklahoma City  
December 31, 1919 - August 23, 2016 PLANO, TX Robert "Bob" Alexander, 96, passed away peacefully in a senior living residence in Plano, TX, on August 23. He was surrounded by loving family. Bob was born to Army Colonel William Denison Alexander and Rachel Claude Doughty on December 31, 1919, in Champaign, IL. He was named for his grandfather, World War I Major General Robert Alexander. Bob spent most of his youth living in Annapolis, MD. He attended St. John's College and later joined the Army Air Corps during World War II. He trained as a bombardier and navigator for the Northrop P-61 Black Widow. While stationed in Norman, OK during the war, he met Shirley How, of Oklahoma City, and they married in 1945. The two lived briefly in Florida and New Mexico before settling in Oklahoma City, where they raised four children and spent 61 of their 68 years of marriage. Most of Bob's career life was spent working in the insurance industry. He first worked as a Special Agent with the Maryland Casualty Co. throughout the 1950s until 1964, then with the Mid-Continent Casualty Co. and Gulf Group through the 1970s. In the 1980s, he worked for Great American for a short time before finishing his career as an investigator for the Oklahoma State Insurance Fund. Bob retired in 1994, but continued part-time contract work for the Fund until 82 years of age. In 2007, Bob and wife, Shirley, moved together to Garden Terrace, of Overland Park, KS, an Alzheimer's specialty care center where Bob spent his last nine years. Bob was an educated and refined man, yet related to everyone with warmth, kindness, humor, and equality. He was a great storyteller, with a good sense of humor and a contagious laugh. He loved to demonstrate a proper boxing stance, the perfect tennis swing and find the best bargains. He always rooted for the underdog, whether it be in sports or in life's endeavors. Bob was preceded in death by parents, William Alexander and Rachel Doughty; sister, Billie Todd; brothers, William Alexander and Marine Major Richard Alexander; wife, Shirley Alexander; and daughter, Jennifer Alexander. He is survived by son, Robert Alexander IV and wife Melba; son, Jon Alexander; daughter, Caroline Rinaldi and husband Robert; daughter-in-law, Francine Ringenback; grandchildren, Lisa Hawkins, Gina Fergeson, Jon Alexander, Francesca Hoffpauir, Sean Alexander, Robert and Jennifer Rinaldi; great-grandchildren, Matthew and Andrew Hawkins, Joshua and Nathan Fergeson, Ashley Shreve and Brady Hawkins; and great-great-grandson, Alexander Hawkins. He is also survived by many more family members and dedicated care providers at Garden Terrace and Groom Senior Living. Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 10 in the Chapel at Resurrection Cemetery in Oklahoma City.

ATCHISON, ALTON - Houston  
July 3, 1945 - Nov. 22, 2016 HOUSTON, TX Al passed peacefully into eternity on Nov. 22, 2016, surrounded by his family after a 18-month battle with lung cancer. His faith and courage were an inspiration to all who knew him and shared his life. He will be deeply missed by family, friends, and business associates. Al was born in Sardis, MS July 3, 1945. He and four of his five siblings were raised in a children's home in Oklahoma. It was there that he met Margy and Darvin Atchison, who would become his adoptive parents. He never saw his early life as anything other than a great learning experience about the value of hard work. He carried that life lesson with him into his career in the Oklahoma National Guard and his career as a manufacturer's agent in the automotive aftermarket industry. He was very proud of his service to the military. He enlisted with the Oklahoma National Guard in 1969 and retired 36 years later in 2005, after earning the rank of chief command warrant officer and being awarded the Legion of Merit. He started in the automotive aftermarket industry in 1971 and worked in that industry as a manufacturer's agent until his death. He was well respected for his work ethic, honesty, and was genuinely loved for his larger than life personality and presence by those who knew him. He was preceded in death by his brother, Daryl Atchison; and his father, Darvin Atchison. He is survived by his wife, Debra Atchison; his daughters, Christy Atchison; Susan Godinez, her husband Bryon; and Alyson Atchison; two grandchildren, Karlee and Kyler Godinez; two brothers, Ralph and Don Elmore; one sister, Sandi Askins; and his mother, Margy Roberts.
