Alec John Chickenoff Jr. was born on August 16, 1956 in San Francisco, CA. He moved to Windsor, CA when he was adopted by Alec John Chickenoff and Natalie S. (Gilligan) Chickenoff. Sadly, Alec departed his life on Monday, August 5, 2019 due to heart failure.
Alec worked as a deck hand for several years in Bodega Bay. He donated most of his time to sports and fishing. Alec was always passionate about coaching wrestling, pop warner football and baseball. He was his sons’ biggest fan, as well as many of their teammates biggest fan. Alec was a very proud parent/coach. There were many days during the off season that Alec and his boys spent time with fishing poles in their hands. On time, his oldest son Richard was saying, “Daddy, I can hear them, I can hear the fish.” His youngest son Kenny has gained a love for fishing and the ocean. After his kids were adults, Alec spent time at the dock fishing for hours, watching his grandkids play sports, and supported his sons’ coaching wrestling.
