In 1923 he came to Lethbridge and found work in the coal mines. He later moved to Raymond and went to work as a butcher.
In 1930 the Jozsa family moved to the T. M. Huff farm at Wilson. There are six children in the family.
Three of the children attended Wilson School until the family moved to Wrentham in 1939. Alex Sr. passed away in 1976.
Alex's son liked to tell the story that his father couldn't pay the hospital bill when he was born so the hospital agreed to take thirty sacks of potatoes in lieu of cash.
