Alex was one of five children of Irene and Stanley Debogorski, and is of American and Polish descent. He grew up on a farm, and later enrolled at the University of Alberta. Prior to discovering truck driving as his life calling, Alex worked on several jobs, including positions such as a club bouncer, taxi driver, coal miner, oil rigger as well as a tire store proprietor. For some time, he was a diamond prospector as well as a mobile homes’flipper’. All these jobs provided the basis of Alex Debogorski’s net worth as well as an opportunity to buy his first truck in 1980.
Although he began his truck driving career in the early 1980s, Alex only came to prominence in 2006 when he was approached by History Channel’s film crew with an offer to join the cast of the new and upcoming reality TV show – “Ice Road Truckers”. The show, which began airing in June 2007, follows the lives, daily activities and routines of truck drivers operating on seasonal routes in Canada’s remote Arctic territories, abundant with frozen roads, lakes and rivers. Alex featured as one of the show’s main figures throughout its ten seasons before the show was discontinued in December 2016. Not only that, this engagement has helped him to reach “legendary driver” status, it has also provided the majority of Alex Debogorski’s revenues over the past 10 years, and significantly increased his net worth.
Apart from the show, Alex is not just a common trucker, he is also a public speaker focused on topics such as risk taking and change management, as well as treasure hunting. In 2010, Alex released (so far) his first book – “King of the Road: True Tales from a Legendary Ice Road Trucker”, a biographical mix of Alex’s stories, anecdotes as well as his childhood memories. Alex also regularly contributes articles to local newspaper “The Yellowknifer”. It is certain that these accomplishments have helped Alex Debogorski to further increase the size of his wealth.
Despite not being able to watch him anymore on “Ice Road Truckers”, Alex will likely stay remembered as the show’s most respected driver, of the most charismatic persona with his never-ending stories as well as his infectious laugh.
When it comes to his personal life, Alex has been married since 1972 to Louise with whom he has 11 children. When he is not on the road, he resides with his large family, currently including 14 grandchildren and counting, in Yellowknife, in Canada’s North-West Territories.
