Alex MacGillis Passing

Alex MacGillis passed away on Sept 7, 2023. He was 95, and looking forward to competing in his new age group at the next swim meet. He enjoyed his return to competition at the Brookfield meet (pictured here), and was overwhelmed with the reception he got, and how many people came to talk to him. After losing his wife last year, he was still grieving, but coming back to swim gave him a renewed purpose. 

The funeral services for Alex MacGillis will be Friday, Sept 22 at St Anthony's Catholic Church in Pewaukee. The visitation is at 9:00 am, with the funeral at 10:30 am.
