Vernon L. Alexander, 93 of Yakima, passed away Friday. He was born Feb. 25, 1917 in Davenport, WA.

Vernon attended Broadway Grade School and Yakima High School. He worked at Wikstrom Motors as a mechanic and tune-up man, working on Buicks and Cadillacs for 44 years from 1937 until 1981. There, he met Evelyn Jarnecke (also employed by Wikstrom's). They were married Feb. 14, 1947.

Vernon enjoyed outdoor activities: hunting and fishing both here and in Canada; three-wheeling; snowmobiling; water-skiing; and racing boats and cars (Buicks, of course). He attended Grace Brethren Church for many years, and the last several years attended the Grace Bible Church.

He enjoyed children, although he had none of his own.

We wish to thanks the girls at Cedar Hills, especially Sue and CiCi for their loving care.

He is survived by his wife, Evelyn; and his nieces JoAnne Pilon and Janis Lahti; and their children. He is preceded in death by his parents, Otis C. & Jennie (Colvard) Alexander; sisters, Levaun Losey and Mary Musgrove; and brothers, Frank, Clifton and Dean.

I lieu of flowers memorials are be sent to one's favorite charity or the Union Gospel Mission.

Viewing will be held Tuesday from 5 until 8 p.m. at the Yakima Chapel of Valley Hills Funeral Home. Graveside Services will be held at 1 p.m. at Terrace Heights Memorial Park with Memorial Service to follow at 2 p.m. at Valley Hills Funeral Home, Yakima.
