Obituary for ALEXANDER W. BRISCOE

ALEXANDER “Louie” W. BRISCOE Jr., son of the late Alexander Briscoe Sr. and Geraldine (Brooks) Briscoe, was born November 30, 1949, in Calvert County, Maryland. He departed this life on Monday, March 31, 2014 at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC after a lengthy illness.

Alexander attended public schools (Appeal Elementary, Calvert Junior High, and Calvert High School) of Calvert County, Maryland. He received his high school diploma in 1968, a noteworthy year as he and his fellow classmates were the first integrated graduation class of Calvert High School. Shortly thereafter graduating, Alexander served in the miltary for four years, as a solider with the U.S. Army, he served in the Vietnam War.

His love for hard work and the trucking industry would later land him a job with John Driggs Trucking in Capital Heights, Maryland. Alexander worked with John Driggs for 15 years and was an active member of the Teamsters Union, Local 639. In 1983, Alexander resigned from John Driggs and decided to pursue his life-long goal and dream, entrepreneurship. He opened A&S Trucking, a business that lead him to acquire 13 dump trucks within a year and employed truck drivers from the local area. The business was retired in 1997 after Alexander’s vision begin to deteriorate.

In 1975 he married Sharlyn Morsell of Sunderland, Maryland.

From this union one child was born, Alexander Tony Briscoe (Mann), and Alexander Jr. became a loving and devoted father to Sharlyn’s son, Delwin Clarke, who was age six at the time. As a family, they lived in Lusby, Maryland for a number of years before moving to St. Leonard, Maryland.

Throughout his lifetime, Alexander enjoyed spending time with his family and close friends. He had a passion for hard work and made sure everyone within his reach knew it, especially men. He instilled a strong work ethic in his sons. As a friend or family member of Alexander, if you ever found yourself in need of something, Alexander did his best to help you. If Eastern United Methodist Church needed something fixed – Alexander would fix it. He loved going to the race track with his sons, driving dump trucks, bus trips to Atlantic City, and playing cards.

Alexander leaves to cherish his fond memory two sons; two grandchildren: Salena Fitzhugh and Jayden V. Clarke (Mother-Bobbie Clarke); two aunts: Angela Bishop and Zelma Brooks; one uncle: Donald Brooks; one sister-in-law: Cindy Briscoe; one special niece: Ms. Valerie W. Ballard; nine special friends: William (Bill) Reynolds, Larry (Dolby) C.
