So sorry to hear of Lexie’s passing. I have fond memories of Friday nights, hanging out as Sophie, Helen and Dorothy played their card games. Also, trips to Wildwood with our extended Tomczak family. RIP, cousin.

I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man. I worked at the DMV, and Alex (as we called him) kept us laughing through so many rough days. What a sense of humor he had.

Billy O, Very difficult to know that Lexie is gone. He was key ingredient that made our teenage years and time together special. I've missed you also Bill. You, Lex, Zoombie were the 4 muskateers. I have trying for years to find out where you are and reconnect. I got Lex, and Zoombie and our spouses together a couple times the last couple years. And, we always spoke about you and missed your company. Can you please send your contact info so we can get together again? My phone number is 240-925-9541. your friend always, Bill Okie

Alex (Lex), You had a great send off on Friday, 8 Feb, It would have warmed your heart to see everyone that was there to pay their last respects to you and offer condolences to Terry, family and friends.The Beatles, Dylan and the Stones played your favorite tunes and the VFW(more then one Vietnam Vet) did a great job folding and presenting the US Flag to Terry and honoring you with a 21 gun salute. Zoombie has a shell casing from the salute. We finished up with great food and beer at Timothy's. I'll miss you terribly, talk to me once in awhile, until we meet again, RIP. Your friend and Budro for all time, Bill Okie
