“Forever in the hearts of his family and many close friends, Alex will be remembered for his boundless energy, his love of skiing, hiking and mountain biking, and his passion for music, especially the guitar,” his family said. ”But greater than that was his charisma, his ability to connect with people, the strength of his character, his intelligence and his wit. And greater still was his capacity to love and be loved — in his all too few years among us, Alex experienced as much love as one could hope for in a lifetime.”
