I did not have a chance to speak to you on Sunday. I want to pass on my condolences to you and your family. I am really glad that I had the chance to meet Alex nine years ago. It was always a pleasure to meet up with him since. Always happy, so full of ideas and energy, a pleasure to be around. Of course, my special memory was going to the Ontario Masters with him. I know it was a wonderful time for him as well. We tried to recreate the magic this year in the Grandmasters but even though we were unsuccessful, it was still fun to try again.

Dear McKinney Family,
I recently attended my daughter’s graduation from Mayfield and was happy to hear the name Alex McKinney attached to the science award given to the most proficient science student. Hearing his name brought back lots of great memories that I shared with my family of times on your farm, showing sheep at the CNE and Bolton Fall Fair, learning the meaning of “hard work” during haying season, being exited to have him as my science teacher at Mayfield and other good times with your family when I was a kid. I was deeply saddened when my mom called me last week to inform me of his passing after reading about it in the Brampton paper. It has been many years since I’ve had contact with your family but I remember Mr. McKinney and the rest of you being a big influence on me that I remember fondly. I offer my deepest condolences on his passing.

Thank you, Dave. On behalf of my family, we appreciate your message and fond remembrances. It certainly has been many years, but I hope that you've been doing well and congratulations to your daughter on graduating from Mayfield. Please say hi to the rest of your family for us.
