He came to the United States on May 31, 2003, 16 years to the day earlier. Looking for the American dream, he was only 21 years old then.

He started working for the city of Virginia Beach as an intern, and by the end of his internship he was offered a full time position. Alex was a Right of Way agent for the Virginia Beach Public Works department, allowing him the opportunity to bring his mother from Belarus to join him in America. He was very active in his spare time playing volleyball, soccer for many years and never missed a game or a practice. He loved the ocean and surfing. Alex was an easy-going person with a great scene of humor. In his time here, he made many faithful friends and touched the lives of many others.
