Alex and I worked together at the Holland outlet mall, he was at Brass Town and I worked at Santa’s. We also attended high school together. We lost touch after high school but I have many fond memories of him. He was always kind and loved playing practical jokes while we were at work. He loved making people laugh. I wish all his family and friends strength and comfort in their time of loss.

Warm Regards,

I met Alex when I was 15 years old. He is still the only person I ever let give me a ride on a motorcycle.
We lost touch for many years but reconnected when he started dating my good friend, Megan. The two of them became some of my closest friends. I am so grateful for the time we had to get caught up in our lives but, so very sad that this was such a tragic end. I am going to miss you, Alex. May you rest in peace.

My sincerest condolences to your family.
