Richard L. Alexander, 76 of Noblesville, passed away on June 20, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. Born on September 26, 1941 in Sheridan, Indiana to Marthann (Johnson) and William Alexander, he lived his life from a young age in Noblesville, attending and graduating from local schools where he met his wife to be and started his life’s work.
Married to Susan C. (Guilkey) Alexander for nearly 60 years, they raised their children, son Robert Duane Alexander, daughters Jenny Alexander (Grant) Byers and Sherry Alexander (Hernando) Sabogal, in Noblesville.

Dick and Susan shared their life together as partners in business as well as life. For over 50 years, they worked to build Alexander Standard Printing in Indianapolis to a quality graphics and printing company. Dick was a skilled woodworker and an avid sports and golf fan in his few hours of spare time. A passion for their printing business and successful challenges met in business and in life defined Dick. Dedication to family, his work and his community is how he will be remembered by all who knew him best.
A family “Celebration of Life” will be on June 30 from 2 - 5 pm at the family residence to honor a special Man, Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather by a gathering of those who loved him most and will miss him dearly.
