Ronald Lee Alexander, 79, of Heathsville, passed away at home on Saturday, August 3, 2019. He graduated from Washington & Lee High School, Arlington, VA in 1957. He retired from the printing industry in 1989. Ron owned a boat that he kept at Olverson’s Marina which brought his family to the Northern Neck every weekend. Ron & friend, Mike Rinick, built his waterfront home which he & Peg moved into in 1989. He didn’t like sitting still. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, boater, gardener and loved working in the yard. He simply loved to just be outdoors doing anything. He loved cruising in his Corvette and belonged to the Northern Neck Corvette Club. He adored his grandchildren, and spending time with them was a highlight of his life. He belonged to the Callao Moose Lodge where he was the Sports Tournament Director. He played pool and he played it well. Lately, with Nancy, Ron became a snowbird-spending his winters in Florida where he picked up golf again and thoroughly enjoyed it. Baseball was a passion and he loved the Washington Nationals. He loved football too; especially cursing at the Redskins.
