Alexander Elliott "Alex" Mosoff (1904-1998) was born in Szydlowiec, Poland on 12 April 1904. Mosoff came to Toronto in 1906. It was there that he married his wife, Fay Layefsky, on 23 March 1924; the two would stay married for 74 years, during which time they had two children: a son, Harold, and a daughter, Gloria.
Mosoff worked for a wholesale groceteria for a time before joining Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in 1924, eventually becoming a manager at a time when it was unusual for a Jewish person to go beyond the position of salesperson. In all, Mosoff spent 44 years at MetLife, retiring in 1968.
Mosoff passed away on 27 April 1998. He was 94 years old.
