Michael Lawrence Alexander
May 26, 1969 (Canada)-July 5, 2007 (Cayman Islands)
Michael was born and grew up in Ajax, Ontario, and then lived in British Columbia for several years. He later returned to Ontario and lived in Toronto until he and his wife moved to London, and later the Cayman Islands.
Michael was a highly ambitious businessman, and founded Accelerated Capital Investments Ltd. in 2004.
Michael aka “FloydianLeaf” lived a full and passionate life brimming with love and laughter. Michael possessed a truly unique and infectious sense of humour, and loved to laugh with all those he encountered. He experienced much more in his short life than many who live to several times his age.
Michael had a great love of music in general, and Pink Floyd in particular. Many of his world travels incorporated various concerts that saw his favourite band members perform. Michael’s other passion was the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team he would have dearly loved see win The Stanley Cup - he will undoubtedly be cheering them on next season from above. Michael had also recently developed a passion for health and fitness, and had successfully lost 71 pounds.
Michael loved to travel and lived out his final days in the Cayman Islands. Regardless of where in the world Michael was, he was always proud to be a Canadian, and he could be found almost everywhere he went sporting a maple leaf.
Michael is survived by his loving wife, Lisa (Volekaert) Alexander and two daughters from a previous marriage, Kayla (12) and Sarah (8). Michael also leaves behind his father Michael O. Alexander, brother Jeffrey Alexander, sisters Cindy Scott, Sandy Crawford and Lynda Mercier, mother-in-law Anna Volekaert, father-in-law John Volekaert, sister-in-law Melissa Volekaert, and Tante Jenny Volekaert. Michael was predeceased by his brother Richard Alexander (July 5, 1984) and mother Maureen Clark (September 18, 2006).
Michael passed away suddenly on July 5, 2007 in the Cayman Islands and will be missed by all who knew him - in person and online. Shine On FloydianLeaf.
I want to get to the point where my height is the only reason I have to shop at the big and tall stores. I would also like to walk up more than 1 flight of stairs and not be winded afterward. I just want my body to be healthy and work effeciently.
In a nutshell , I work out at the gym 3 days per week with 2 of those days with a trainer and on off gym days I ride my bike, run or do elliptical or rowing or a combination of all the above.
I'm a venture capitalist in the Cayman Islands, but I'm Canadian by birth. I'm married for a second time. I love to travel and do so whenever I can and I am a huge music fan with Pink Floyd being my favourite band. By a long shot one might say. :)
My favourite author is Stephen King, so far my favourite place I've travelled to is Venice, with Paris and London following close behind. I also write and enjoy collecting Pink Floyd memorabilia.

I am so sorry for your loss. I haven't been on in a while and with it being new year's I decided to try again. I checked on some people that I liked to talk to and keep track of and I am in total shock to find out the Floydian has passed on. Unbelieveable.

I am shocked and saddened to read of Michael's passing. His accomplishments through Spark were an inspiration to me and so many others.
