Lifelong OSU Buckeye Fan and Alumnus, dies at 89
Donald Jesse Alexander, lifelong Ohio State University Buckeye fan and alumni, passed on Friday, January 4, 2013 at Fairfield Medical Center, Palliative Care.

Donald Jesse Alexander was born February 16, 1923, to the late Dora (Beiran) and George Alexander of Columbus, Ohio.
Don was the youngest son of George Alexander who formed a marine business on the south side of Buckeye Lake in Millersport, Ohio. The business, dating back to 1870, was named an historical landmark by the Greater Buckeye Lake Historic Society in 2004. Originally known as “Hamilton Place”, Don’s great great Grandmother operated the business as a boat rental and boat landing, as well as a hotel and stable. The business name was changed to Alexander’s Landing in 1925.
Don was a graduate of Walnut Township High School in Millersport, Ohio. He served in the Pacific Theater during WWII as a paramedic. After the war Don completed his education at The Ohio State University graduating in 1948. He joined the family business following his college graduation; a lifetime career until his retirement. Don was a member of the Fairfield Baptist Church, Altura Masonic Lodge 537 F&AM, American Legion and served as a board member with Walnut Township School District.
