  • To Alex’s entire family,
    No words that I can express will truly be fitting. Alex was my “paint guy”. He was patient, friendly, and listened to the crazy homeowner with too many projects. You can tell he truly loved life and his family. It is truly heartbreaking that you are now without his zest here on Earth. My condolences and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

  • To the family….
    This news is very upsetting to hear of Alex’s passing, and such a shock!
    I was your neighbor when Alex was still in west elementary school. He was at our house all the time playing with my son, Ben.
    We loved him and enjoyed being around him, he was always happy, smiling, and trustworthy.
    My condolences to the family.
