On September 9, 1988, Alex was united in marriage to his faithful life partner, Linda Ann Crowley in Beaver Park in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Alex came from a family of eight children.  Alex and Linda are blessed with four children,  Kim Alexander, Bill Kirk, Doug Kirk and Mason Achenbach, Alex was a grandpa to many grandkids. He is also survived by his sisters, Eunice Eide, Florence Achenbach and Marjorie Fox. Alex was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Robert Achenbach and his sisters, Alberta Geiger, Audrey Nevius and Dorothy Swanson.
