“Alex was aways the one to crack a joke even in the hardset of times that would make everyone smile or laugh. He had a very contagious smile and really could make friends with anyone. He was a strong willed person who willing took on the responsibilities of being a step dad even before his own flesh and blood and I will never forget that. No matter what period he is and will always be important in memories and in the future.

“Although we do not know your family we would like you to know how sad we are for your family. We lost our son on October 4,2020 with the same circumstances. We cannot express how we are thinking of your family at this time. Young lives lost way too soon. We really do understand your sorrow. We will pray that God comforts you and help you through this difficult time. The days will be long and the nights will be longer but in some way you will all make it through. Again God Bless you all, and words cannot express our sorrow and thoughts for you and your family. Maybe they are talking about Harleys up there.
- Mark and Mona Boyd
