Alexander A. Bressler, 72, of Harrisburg, went to be with his Lord on Friday, October 16, 2020, at his home with his loving family by his side.

Born in Pottsville on July 23, 1948, he was the son of the late Clair and Lilly Bortolato Bressler.

Alex retired as a Dispatcher for the Comcast Corporation. He was a 1966 graduate of Tri Valley High School, Schuylkill County, received an Associate’s Degree in Accounting from the Harrisburg Area Community College, and attended Elizabethtown College. Alex coached Little League baseball, basketball and soccer. A man with a strong faith, he appreciated and used the gift of musical talent God gave him to play gospel music at nursing homes and sing in the church choir at Chambers Hill United Methodist Church. An avid guitar player, he loved music, especially Gordon Lightfoot. Never letting his physical disability get in the way, Alex was able to touch so many lives in so many ways. He was a man passionate about his interests, never shying away from a conversation that would inevitably make you laugh and smile. He filled every day with laughter and joy. More than anything, however, he loved and cherished his wife, children and grandchildren.

Alex is survived by his wife of 42 years, Barbara A. Kaylor Bressler, whom he married on February 3, 1978; two sons, Christopher Bressler and Eric Bressler both of Harrisburg; one daughter, Danielle Seeling wife of Kevin of Malvern; three grandchildren, Lily Seeling, Rose Seeling and Alexander Seeling all of Malvern; two brothers Joseph Bressler husband of Leah of Carolina Beach, NC, and Nicholas Bressler husband of Beth of Bloomingdale; and nieces and nephews.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, services will be held at a later date.

Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, is handling the arrangements.
Those desiring may send memorial contributions to Someone To Tell It To, 216 State Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101; or to Hospice of Central Pennsylvania, 1320 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

Barb, I was so sorry to learn of Alex's passing. It's been a long time since our Farmer's Bank days, but I remember them well. May you and your family be comforted knowing Alex is in heaven with our lord and creator.

Alex brought joy, enthusiasm & wisdom to everyone whose life he touched with his boundless generosity and steadfast nobility. His life was was that of an upright soul, beyond compare. Blessed with a loving family, his constancy in love and support for them is a standard all should emulate. His sense of justice and humor enriched every conversation and exchange our family had with him. Known as “The Mayor” of Lawnton and the impresario of Mickey D’s, Alex knew how to call forth the best in every person with whom he interacted. After President Franklin Roosevelt died, Woody Guthrie wrote a song entitled “Dear Mrs. Roosevelt” in which Guthrie wrote “The world was lucky to see him born.” Woody could just as well have written those words about our Good Neighbor and Treasured Friend Alex. Our family will NEVER FORGET Alex and the Great Gift he has been and remains in our lives. Surely God has prepared a special place for Alex at His table.
Fondly, Trish, Will, Meghan & Michael Edmiston
