Alexander Biro was born on February 11, 1922 in the town of Nyirabator, Hungary to Julianna and Joseph Biro.  After graduating from high school at 16 years old, he worked for his parents in their butcher shop business. Three years later, he moved with his brother to Vajan, Hungary and was employed as an administrator in the Vajan town hall.

Alex was drafted in 1943 and served in the Hungarian army as office personnel from 1943 to 1945.  When the war ended, he returned to his hometown, Nyirabator to continue his work as a town hall administrator. By 1949, he and his brother moved to Austria and then to England to procure a better future.  Together, they worked for both steel and chemical factories in those countries.  In 1951, they immigrated to the United States and Alex gained employment at American Chain and Cable Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut where he remained a faithful employee for thirty two years. 

In 1955, Alex married the love of his life, June Dorothy Treptau and together they raised their children in Connecticut enjoying country music, gardening and vacationing through the years.  Alex’s love for his family was unending and the focal point of his life.  He was thought of by many as a kind and gentle man and his family and friends felt blessed to have him in their lives.  He was preceded in death by his wife, June, in 1996.
