Wade Glenn Alexander passed away peacefully at the age of 60 on Monday, June 13, 2022. Wade is survived by his beautiful wife, Tammy, and three daughters: Sarah, Megan and Rachel. Wade was a cook in the Navy, primarily on submarines. He spent most of his post-Navy career as a roofer/contractor running his own successful business, Cross Roofing. Later in life, he owned and ran a cross-country trucking business, Wade’s Trucking, hauling primarily furniture and motorcycles. He spent his last few years expanding his craft, incorporating metals. Wade was a very creative and handy man; he always enjoyed woodworking and creating pieces, always incorporating his own unique style. One of his greatest projects was the log home he designed and built for his family. Every piece of pine was from the property, trees dropped, cut and stained by Wade. Truly a handcrafted masterpiece.
Close friends and family could always expect a funny video from Wade showing his latest creation. He was the first person to make a joke out of something, always putting a smile on everyone’s face. Wade was hard working, creative, funny and he loved fishing and hunting. He was always willing to lend a hand to friends and neighbors. Words cannot begin to describe how much he will be missed.
Wade worked tirelessly, now he is finally resting.
Service will be 11 am on Saturday, June 25 at the Backus Church of the Nazarene. Visitation will be one hour before the service.
