Thomas Lee Alexander, 66, of Yellville, Arkansas departed this life on October 22, 2019 doing what he loved.
He was born on January 27, 1953 in Gary, Indiana to Robert Lee Alexander and Carol Magdeline (Kurth) Alexander.
Tom attended Escondido High School in Escondido, California and later moved to Yellville in 1979. He raised his three children: Jason, Greg and Daniel Alexander on his farm, sharing his love of the outdoors with them throughout their childhood.
Tom was a Professional Land Surveyor and Vice President of Arkansas Operations for NTB Associates, Inc. Being a longstanding member of Arkansas Society of Professional Surveyors, he was the current President of the North Central Arkansas Chapter. He was a member of the NRA and former member of the local Striper club.
He married his soulmate Valerie McPherson on November 13, 2010, and they enjoyed an active yet quiet life together in Yellville, Arkansas until his passing. Tom was a wonderful husband, father, and friend, who always had a smile on his face. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting and fishing, taking care of his farm, watching football...especially the Kansas City Chiefs, having cookouts and getting out on the lake with his friends and family, and just living life.
He is survived by his wife, Valerie, his sons: Jason Alexander, Greg (Jessica) Alexander, Daniel (Audra) Alexander, 12 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild, his sisters: Karen (Steve) Adams, Cindy (Craig) Kittrell, many close uncles, aunts, and cousins, and countless friends. He has left a hole that cannot be filled.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Denise Lynn Damazio.
A private memorial will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Hospice of the Ozarks.
Arrangements are by Roller-Burns Funeral Home in Yellville, Arkansas.
