Actually, he wanted to have a minimum of three sons, all named with the letter A - the name of loyalty. - We will Alyosha, Antoshka and Andrei - told his wife. And when, after Alexis was born, Anya, was 10 and the sky with delight washing diapers. And then she made a hat out of foam and taught her for two weeks, swim.
According to his son was a strict and demanding. It wanted Alex studied and graduated more than one university. Educated Igor Alexandrov - a civil engineer, graduated from the Irkutsk Institute of Engineers zh.d. transport, in no time he accused opponents. And although the journalist makes a journalist is not a crust of a special institution, yet he really understood the role of education. And so terribly upset when his son after two courses left in akademotpusk. He was shocked: "You lose a year!"
He read a lot, carried this habit from childhood. In the past subscribed to the classics, . read all of Pushkin and Dostoevsky, . Book shore and growing library of literature is so diverse, . that the wife Lyudmila difficult to answer unequivocally, . What interested him most,

"Maybe he phoned and threatened," - thinks Lyudmila. Perhaps hinting at reprisals, and this was cause for alarm. But Igor did not expect death at any rate, such rapid. In general, he was an incorrigible optimist, and the word "death" is perceived as something distant and even unnatural. Even when it floated in abstract philosophical discussions, Alexandrov always indignant: "What is death, what you say!".
He was active and energetic life in it seethed. Lyudmila knew him so since 1979. They met in Siberia, in g. Taishet Irkutsk region: she came here on distribution, and he lived here. He worked first in the locomotive depot, then - as an instructor in the city party committee, then - first secretary of the Komsomol. They married in 1980, and in Slovyansk moved in eight years.

But his anxiety was special, nothing like the excitement of people to lose their jobs - say people who were close. Moreover, it will not be broken trough. He had specific plans for future activities: as a minimum, to resume publication of the newspaper. Immediately responded friends, went proposals. And against this background that something did not give him no peace. Who and what? Oh, if he though someone shared his thoughts then!
June 21, his birthday, 45 th anniversary, he gathered the staff - would this date be noted. But the holiday did not work. "It was like a farewell, - I was told staff IRTC" TOP ". - He was a great joker and lover of toast, silent and only nodded sadly. Congratulations passed in dead silence, they were all out of sorts ".
