It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of long-time member Phil Alexander. Phil proudly practiced dentistry for 50 years in the greater Cleveland area. We noted his attendance at our last meeting on February 8 when Bob DiBiasio was our speaker.

Some undoubtedly remember his volunteer work at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and his delight in presenting a program telling us about performing dentistry on the animals there.

Aside from his love of family and his profession, he was an avid golfer and life member of Westwood Country Club, a volunteer at the First Tee of Cleveland, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and the Cleveland Sight Center. Memorial services have not been scheduled.
