Alec W. Brindle ’60 was born in Seattle on Oct. 18, 1938, and attended St. Joseph elementary school, Seattle Preparatory School, SCU, and the University of Washington School of Law and held an honorary doctorate from the University of Alaska, SE. Asked about his career, Alec would describe himself as “a recovering lawyer and a retired Alaska fish packer.” He practiced law in Seattle for several years; but on the death of his father assumed leadership of the family business, Wards Cove Packing Co., and stayed at the helm for over 20 years, becoming a leader in the industry. He went to his reward on May 12, 2019, when recovery from major spine surgery eluded him. Alec was preceded in death by his first wife, Cornelia “Pinky” Brindle. He is survived by his wife, Maddy; his son, Alec Jr., Alec’s wife, Ana Sofia, and their daughter, Amélia Alexander (aka “Our Girl”); Maddy’s children Sheila Beer and Patrick Connolly (Douglas Berman), and grandchildren JP and Maddy Beer; and siblings Sara Blair (Rob) and Barbara Lally (John).
