Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

(I happen to have known 3 Jeopardy Champions and two of them had stories about ol’ Alex, but I consider one of those to be a very unreliable source. Let’s just say there are some Jeopardy champions who are quite nice and balanced, and others who are a little loose upstairs IMHO.)

What a wonderful person he was. He is and will be missed.


I was sad to see that. He genuinely seemed like a nice guy, someone one would want to know.

This just devastates me. I was hoping he was beating it back. He was on television recently and looked fine.

I’m really distraught.
