Alex received his wings and brand-new legs on March 22, 2019. He was born to Julius and Mary (nee Lepsenyi) Szasz on March 25, 1934. Alex grew up on the family farm just east of St. Benedict, attended school in town and farmed with his Dad and on his own. Although Alex’s limited mobility eventually meant the end of his farming days, he continued to live on the farm and his cropping focus changed from the fields to his garden. As his mobility continued to decline, he moved to Bethany Pioneer Village in Middle Lake and that became his new home. Alex was an avid reader and spent many hours with his nose in books of all kinds, his favorites being any pertaining to history or tractors. Having a keen interest in politics and what was happening in the world, he often had his radio on and tuned to a news channel. Alex always enjoyed a good cup of coffee, especially at coffee row where the men gathered for their regular (and some- times colorful) story telling. And he never passed up Hungarian food, especially the sweet stuff! His sharp mind and quick wit were often the source of stories, teasing and laughter with his caregivers. His Bethany family will truly miss him.
