  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Death is never welcomed, but it seems to be something we all are accustomed too. Please be assured that the bible promises that God will soon undo death (Revelation 21:3,4) and he promises in John 5:28,29 to resurrect our loved ones right here on earth. I hope these promises as well as your wonderful memories bring you comfort.

  10. I went to elementary school, and middle school with Alex, but moved away for high school. We reconnected on fb years later. I have a super funny memory of Alex when we were in elementary school. Him, Matt Miller, and I took over the four square area, kept ganging up on the fourth person, and repetitively slammed the ball hard in their square, to get them out, so we could stay in the squares all recess. Eventually, the other kids told on us, and we had to stop. Alex was awesome. My upmost condolences to the family. Rest in paradise, old friend :*)

  11. Alex and I went to school together, along with quite a few others who’ve signed this book. He has always been a great guy, even from when we were growing up. He was a pleasure to be around and to laugh with. My thoughts are with Alex and family.

  12. Growing up next door made it feel like Alex and Stevie were my little brothers too. I am so sad to hear of this. Alex was a great guy and friend. He was the first friend who called me when my dad passed and I will never forget that. He was the definition of a true friend. I will miss you always man. Rest In Peace.

  13. I only knew Alex a short time but he was a very sweet person. We had a good conversation on a lot of different subjects he was passionate about his points. He also shared his drawings with me he was very good. Loved his compassion. I will miss him and his sweet soul. Rest in peace.

  14. I sat next to Alex our entire 7th grade year at KMS, since we both had “F” last names. Alex was a wonderful person. He was always kind and fun to be around. I am truly sorry to hear of his passing. His entire family will be in my prayers.

  15. You were beside me the first time I saw the blue waters of the Gulf, you were there to see me off on my first plane ride, and years later when I was going through a difficult time you were the first to call. Alex you made me laugh when I was sad and you let me know I would be ok when I was scared. For these memories and a million others, I will never forget you.

  16. I worked with Alex at AEV. He was a great man. Always laughing and joking. He was part of our AEV family and will be missed very much

  17. Alex, your passing was so sudden and so heart breaking. You were taken too soon from all of us. I cherish the times that I did get to spend with you and I miss you so much already. The first time seeing you, after years in between, you grabbed me in a bear hug and continued to tell me that you’d always have my back no matter what. That you were like a big brother to me now because that is what family does. Family was everything to you. You always had a smile on your face and such an open heart with everybody.
    I pray for your beautiful daughter Lia who made up your heart, all of your siblings, and my aunt Penny and Steve. You had such a loving group of family and friends. I know you’ll be greatly missed but never forgotten! ❤️ I love you Alex
    Rest in peace brother

  30. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Alex. I went to high school with him. We were not close but had mutual friends. He was such a wonderful guy and I always remember him smiling and laughing. I am grieving with all of you and am feeling the same emptiness you all are from the loss of my brother recently too. I am praying for you all for comfort and to feel Gods love around you all as you go through this.
