Nicolas Alexander

Nicolas Alexander died Oct. 28. He was 87.

Mr. Alexander was born as Mikolaj Woronowicz July 6, 1926, in Ziemianie, Dizna, Poland. As a runner for the Polish underground, he was caught by the Germans in 1944 and sent to Dachau concentration camp, where he was imprisoned for 18 months. When the camp was liberated, he was sent to a displaced persons camp and then to England, where he married Pauline Dowding. Two years later, they moved to Gresham. At first, Alexander worked sweeping floors for a cabinet-making shop and worked his way up through the business. In 1971, he started his own company, Alexander Manufacturing. In the 1980s and ‘90s, he was active at St. Stanislaus Church in Portland.

He is survived by his wife Pauline; daughter, Nicola Alexander Klutho; son-in-law, William Klutho; and two granddaughters.

A celebration of life will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, at Holy Family Church, followed by a reception. Memorial donations can be made to the Nicolas Alexander Scholarship Fund at De La Salle North Catholic High School, 7528 N. Fenwick Ave., Portland, OR 97217. –
