Paul Naggar advised that he received a call from a mutual friend who told him that Alex had passed away on Saturday 21 January 2023.
Alex Ebert was told by his doctors in early 2022 that his cancer was progressive and untreatable and that XMAS 2022 would be the last one that he saw. Alex was determined to prove them wrong and lasted longer than some of his doctors expected.
Alex had limited feeling in his hands and feet towards the end but was still upbeat and continued to travel to work each day from his aged care facility in Concord to keep his mind and body active. He greatly appreciated the occasional call from OTC Vets which lifted his spirits by talking/reminiscing about the good old days of OTC. He recalled his days with the Vets and working for OTC fondly and greatly enjoyed rekindling those memories.
Alex had been the Treasurer of the OTVA for a brief period in 2011/12.
Alex became an accountant after he left OTC/Telstra. Alex’s father, Tony Ebert, was a Shift Controller in SOR in his later years in OTC who passed away in 2004. Alex’s mother passed away in 2019.
