As my 10+ years older cousin by marriage in the early ‘60s , Alec was always kind and welcoming, especially when I would visit with the family in Chomedy. Always kind to this “kid” , I remember him fondly and know that his memory will forever be a blessing to his entire family.

Dear Georgette, the entire Blumenthal and Vineze families, It is with great sadness to learn of Alec’s passing. Having recently spoken to Alec seeking information about family connections, it is hard to believe that he is no longer with us. Alec was charismatic and charming gentleman. Many years ago when we were all so very young, we were at a family event where Alec asked me to dance. Alec led me in a ballroom dance, one who had no dancing skills at the time, with patience. Little did I understand the talent that took until I took dancing lessons. Yes he had given me the love of dance. As a rabbi once said when a candle that lights a room goes out, regardless of whether it just burns out or is blown out, there is darkness. So it is with the loss of a loved matter how old, he is irreplaceable. May your treasured memories and strength of family and friends guide all of you through this most difficult time. My warm and heartfelt condolences to all, Sheila

Dear family Alex was my very first boyfriend when we were around 14. He was and still looked very handsome. As we live in Toronto I just happened to read the obit. May God give you strength at this difficult time. Sounds like he was a REAL MENSCH. Ellie & Sonny Kaizer

Dear Georgette and all the family. The service was beyond beautifu to honour such an amazing man. The words were a testimonial to who he was as a father and grandfather and person and friend to all. Not many people are spoken of like that by sons and grandsons. You were all so lucky to have had him in your life. May all his wisdom amd all the memories stay with you to help at this sad sad time. Debra and Steve Berke

Ada Tarnofsky - 27 days ago

I remember Alec very well from the early 1960s where my late husband Stanley and I lived right across the hall from him at 7920 Cote St. Luc Road (Americana Towers, as it was called in those days). Alec was a classy guy, quiet, very friendly and a very nice person. My condolences to his family. Warmly, Ada

Alec and I first met in the late 1970's when , as a kid, I came to Montreal on my first buying trip- we've been friends ever since. Alec was, and will continue to be, an integral part of my life, even though we could go years without seeing each other we talked constantly. His good nature, his love of family, his enjoyment of his own life will always be an inspiration for me. We were best friends. My wife and I send our heartfelt sympathies and love to the entire family.

EVA & PETER NEMES - 28 days ago

To the family, please accept our sincerest condolence. Alec and i go back to the late sixties when we first met, he was selling buttons for Canadian Buttons and I was purchasing from him. Every time I saw Alec he looked like he just stepped out of a fashion magazine. In the early seventies Alec became both a mentor and a friend when he asked me to join Canadian Butttons and he introduced me into sales. He truly changed my life for the better. I am forever grateful for your kindness and friendship. May you rest in peace.

Jeff Frank - 28 days ago

Alec would go out of his way 3-4 times a year to drop by my office, with almost an apology that he wouldn't want to disturb me. He'd say hi and to ask genuinely, how I was doing from the doorway. He'd share his 'nachus' mostly about his Georgette; his confidence in all his children; his joy from his grandchildren, and his pride from his commercial dealings. He'd always look as if he'd just won the Trifecta ! Although we did no business, I profited way more by knowing him and especially from his positively over the many years. My sincere condolences to the family ,

Samantha Brenhouse - 29 days ago

To the entire family, my deepest condolences. Uncle Alec was the most wonderful man. He has always and will continue to occupy prime realestate in my heart. We have always had a special bond. Everytime we spoke or saw one another, he would rant and rave about his beautiful grandchildren. His life was so full of such wonderful people, he had a constant smile - and it lit up the room. I will miss my dapper, kind-hearted, loving uncle, every single day. I love you and miss you.
