Born in Boston’s South End, the family moved to Revere in 1919, settling on Carleton St., Revere. Mr. Alexander would live his entire life in the same home on Carleton St. Most of his working career was as a bus driver and for over forty years, he and his late wife, Ruth F. (Barber) would own and operate their own school bus company, Revere Bus Company. Ruth passed on July 23, 2015 at 91 years, after 72 years of marriage. Arthur served for four years with the U.S. AIR FORCE as a Private 1st class, entering in January of 1942 until March of 1946. He served with the 1377th AAF in India-Burma. The couple were an inspiration to many and especially within the neighborhood, with their extraordinary devotion to each other & their strong work ethic. It is a comfort to the family, that on this Valentine’s Day, on Sunday, February 14th, Arthur & Ruth will be “TOGETHER FOREVER”.
