Alex was a fiend to all.  Would give you the shirt off his back.  Bend over
backwards to help however he could.  And he could and did.

He will be missed greatly by many.  He leaves many friends, myself included
who grieves his passing.

My sincere condolences to his wife, Lori.  A very giving soul herself.

I'm just crushed.  He was bulletproof!  Running from coach to coach
constantly, tirelessly helping others.

Sincerely
Billy Massey  :-(

I am devastated to hear that I will no longer be able to talk and learn
from him.
He was a great teacher and contributor.
Grace and I give Lori our condolences.

Alex Ferrara!  What a great man.

Everytime I open up the engine compartment door to check my oil level, "
#143" written in sharpie is staring back at me, reminding me of Alex, and
his devotion and service to our GMC community!

He will be fondly remembered by many of us as we're at the wheel, guiding
our coaches down broad Interstates and curving mountain roads with minimum
steering effort.

Thank you Alex!!!  We are so blessed to have had you touch our coaches and
lives.

Lenore and I send our condolences to Lori for her loss, and thanks for
sharing Alex with all of us.

I think of him , and will continue to think of him, every time I take my hands off the steering wheel of the GMC, and it continues to track straight
down the road.

A Terrible loss to the GMC community and his family.

I feel that any GMCers that have not yet been vaccinated should rethink their reluctance to being vaccinated.
I think Alex would still be with us if he had.
Please— please think about it!
We want you to be around a long time.
