I worked (ITT/ Harris) with Alexis for 33 years, he was a good friend and coworker. I always enjoyed talking to him and working technical issues in the manufacturing lab with him. He always had a good idea that we could talk about to solve the issue. It was a honored to know him and work with him. To Alexis's family and wife I am very sorry for your loss.
