My deepest regrets on your loss. I will always remember the kindness he showed in all my years of service for the company.
Our sincerest condolences to the Alex Papalas Family, with the recent passing of Alex. Condolences, especially to my good neighbor Stephen G. Papalas of Niles, Ohio. I met Alex over 23 years ago, as my wife and I were invited guests at the Papalas 4th of July party at the Papalas compound in Lincoln Park, MI. We traveled to Michigan with Stephen G. Papalas and his family. We had a wonderful time. I found Alex to be an engaging, impressive and commanding man. He was a great man. His family was extremely friendly and welcoming to Janet and me. We ask God to bless his soul and grant him eternal salvation. We as the Lord to bring comfort to the Papalas family and all those who loved Alex.
