Thomas Alexander Obituary

Thomas John Alexander 

March 07,1946 ~ October 28, 2023 (age 77)

Thomas John Alexander passed away unexpectedly at his home in Saunders, Florida on October 28, 2023. Tommie was raised in Plainfield, New Jersey by his parents Salvatore Alexander and Ann (Aceta) Alexander along with his two brothers Neil and Salvatore and one sister Leigh (Alexander) Henner.

Tommie attended Plainfield High School and was drafted into the Army to fight in the Vietnam War. As an infantryman, he achieved the rank of Sargent and returned home safely to his family. He never forgot those that were not as fortunate and did not get to return home.

Tommie loved to drive and he became a long-haul truck driver, eventually owning his own trucking business behind the wheel of his award-winning Kenworth which he took great pride in. He made his home in Brick Township, New Jersey for over 40 years before retiring full time in Florida.

Tommie had three children—Jennifer Alexander, Teri (Alexander) Hoffman, and Paul Bengué Alexander and his wife Lindsay Furman Alexander as well as three grandsons, Noah Rittenhouse Hoffman, Ian Roger Hoffman, and Vance Arthur Alexander. He also had one very special dog Cora whom he treasured until her very last day.

He was predeceased by his parents Salvatore and Ann (Aceta) as well as his youngest brother Sal. 

He is survived by his three children, three grandchildren, brother Neil Alexander and his wife Jean as well as their son Annile, his wife Joy and their son Otis. He also left behind his “Florida Family” William “Billy” Ainsworth, Pam Juhl and their sons William, Terrence and James, as well as many lifelong friends he grew up with and kept in touch with over the years. His closest friends from his Plainfield days and years in the trucking industry to whom he affectionately referred to as the ‘He Man Woman Haters Club’ have lost a devoted member of the group.

His family will be holding a Memorial Gathering in New Jersey on December 3, 2023 from 1-4 pm.
