Father Alexander (1932-2016)

Hieromonk Alexander fell asleep on Wednesday at the age of 84

Hieromonk Alexander [Mayba], 84, for many years a beloved member of the Brotherhood of Saint Tikhon’s Monastery, fell asleep in the Lord at Wayne Memorial Hospice on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

Born in Troy, NY on May 10, 1932, Father Alexander received monastic tonsure on April 7, 1995.  On February 18 of the following year, he was ordained to the diaconate, while his ordination to the priesthood occurred on May 20, 1999.  In addition to his duties at the monastery, he served the faithful of Saints Peter and Paul Church, Uniondale, PA.  In 2004, he was awarded the gold cross by the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America.

Archimandrite Sergius expressed the feeling of the Brotherhood: "Hieromonk Alexander was an important part of our community and labored tirelessly in selfless service for years at the Monastery. He will be greatly missed by all."
