James P. (Jim) Alexander, 77, passed away on July 18, 2019, at his home surrounded by family.  He was born November 6, 1941, in Ridgeville, Indiana, the son of Paul and June (Maxwell) Alexander.  He has resided in Winchester the past four years after living his entire life in Ridgeville.

Jim began his working years at Gulley Ford in Winchester, in 1959, immediately after high school graduation.  He later worked as an electrician, sold automotive electrical test equipment and eventually owned and operated Richmond Battery in Richmond, Indiana and retired from there after 23 years.

He will be loved and remembered by his wife, Sheila.  They would have celebrated 57 years of marriage in August.  Also, his children Mishelle Jolene (Greg) Mock of Winchester; Michael James (Amy) Alexander of Fargo, ND; and Jarrod Ray (Annette) Alexander of Portland, IN.  His grandchildren, Brandon (Nicole) Mock of Winchester; Taylor (Sara) Mock of Pendleton, IN; Cole Alexander (fiancée Rachel Marsh) of Minneapolis, MN; Mitchell Alexander of Terre Haute, IN.  Jim has two great-grandsons that he enjoyed immensely, Maddox Mock of Winchester and Beckham Mock, Pendleton.  Jim is also survived by a sister, Carolyn Evans of Union City, IN.

Following Jim’s wishes, he will be cremated and a private memorial service will be held at the convenience of his family.

We always loved to be with Jim, to hear his stories, to laugh with his quick wit and sense of humor, and just to share in his unique spirit of life. He was “one of a kind” and so much fun! His family is and will always be so very special to us. We love each and every one of you. We are so sorry Jim had to suffer so and endure all of the health battles which he faced. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in knowing that he is no longer enduring all the earthly, physical suffering. Sending our love and blessings......Sonjia & John
