Alexander SorochtyAlexander Michael Sorochty, 77, died of a heart attack while in Florida on Jan. 20, 2020. He was born Sept. 29, 1942, a son of the late Michael and Anne Pasko Sorochty.

He is survived by his wife, Eileen (Stirk) Sorochty.

A survivor of lung cancer since May 2015, Alex retired from Delco after 33 years of service. He had a love of golf for most of his life and an uncanny need to have a hot dog whenever he could. He and Eileen enjoyed their 7-year motorhome adventures to Florida and cross country twice. He loved a good baseball game and spoke of his fishing experiences often. Any time he could spend beside water was a good day, and so his beachside condo was his happy place. He spent many hours over a 10-year period, volunteering his time to the Benevolent Order of the Masonic Lodge.

Most of all, Alex loved spending time with his family. The true pleasure in his life was attending their sports events and being part of their lives. To be able to make people laugh with his made-up language and animated facial expressions was always his focus at any gathering, along with his special brand of humor.

Alexander was predeceased by his first wife, Joyce; his parents, Michael and Anne Pasko Sorochty; and a brother, Richard Sorochty.

He is survived by his beloved sister, Barbara; sister-in-law, Sandy Sorochty; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Peter and Gloria Monacelli; four children, Lisa (Frank) Marcera, Cathy (John) Mallett, Donna (Bill) Donovan and Brian (Mary Ann) Sorochty; two stepchildren, Kristine Fredrick and Raymond (Sonia) Fredrick; 15 grandchildren, Kristy, Alyssa and Frankie Jr. Marcera, Stephen and Jeremy Mallett, Brandon and Britney Donovan, Loretta and Amelia Sorochty, Ashley, Colton, Victoria, Mckenzie, Giavanna and Cooper Fredrick; and many loving nieces and nephews.

Alexander’s celebration of life will be held at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Albion. Details will be announced in the spring.

Memorial contributions in Alex’s name may be made to Wilmot Cancer Institute in Rochester, or to PAWS Animal Shelter in Albion.
