Alexander McCool Obituary

Alexander A. McCool III of Huntsville, Alabama, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2024 at the age of 69.

Alex was born on May 28, 1954 to Alexander A. McCool Jr. and Genelle Wade McCool in Vicksburg, Mississippi, both deceased. 

Alex, a 1972 graduate of Grissom High School, went on to serve his country in the United States Air Force, with stops in Shreveport, Louisiana, and Denver, Colorado. Alex furthered his education at Community College of Denver, receiving an Associate of Applied Science, then went on to receive a Precision Measuring Certificate from
Emily Griffith Technical College.

For 35 years, Alex gained experience in aerospace tooling set up, modifications and maintenance. His passion was ultimately realized when working for The Boeing Company at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, serving the many missions of NASA. During his career, Alex contributed to several missions, including the International Space Station, Artemis Space Launch Systems, Avenger, Arrow, and Air Force satellites.

Alex loved the outdoors including camping, hiking, fishing, geocaching, cars, and sports especially Alabama football. He had a contagious laugh, always had something interesting to say, and was proud of his sons.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Jennifer, two sons, Alexander A. McCool IV (Chelsea) and Nicholas McCool and sister, Janet Cooper (Jack).

In lieu of funeral services, we ask that all who wish to honor his years working with NASA to make a donation to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Education Foundation.
