2 Condolences for “SZENTES, Alec”

  1. Dennis Mikalson says:

    It was shock and sadness today that I learned of Alec’s passing.
    Alec was a good man who I had great respect for. I wished I would have known as I would have been in attendance to pay my respects.
    Although we mostly worked in different sections Alec was always the guy who would help if needed. Alec didn’t hesitate to cut through the BS to get things done.
    I admired him for that. He was also quick to step in to support or defend his co-workers and friends. He had strong principles and never took to easy way over the right way.
    Please accept my condolences and reget that I was not there to honor an honarable man.
