Age 24 , Colorado
Alex was killed by a single bullet in the Aurora theater shooting while he was shielding the love of his life from harm. We miss him every single moment of every day. He was a son, a brother, a friend, a hero. He lived life with pure joy and enthusiasm. He was intelligent, kind and compassionate. His relationships with others were his priority. We miss his laugh, sharp sense of humor, incredible guitar playing and watching him devour the craziest foods. He loved traveling, physical fitness, music and being around others. His mentoring and counseling work with troubled youth and special needs students changed lives and will never be forgotten. We love you, Alex.
