We will not say Papa is gone, he is just away, as we know we will reunite with him again. Alex suddenly, but peacefully passed away with his family at his bedside. Alex was born Aug. 14, 1932, in Sheridan, Wyo. At the age of nine, his parents and brothers relocated to Suisun City.
Alex worked for Southern Pacific Railroad, retail clerks and was currently employed at Virgil’s Bait Shop fulfilling one of his biggest passions while sharing many fish stories. He also loved playing and watching sports, but was an avid fisherman. His real passion in life was being a husband, dad, grandfather and great-grandfather. He took great pride in loving, caring and helping his family; there is nothing he would not do for them.
Alex is survived by his wife, Judy, the love of his life for over 53 years; son, Anthony; daughter, Cristina and Bill; grandchildren, Rico, Cassie, Sierra, Hayden; and his precious great-grandson, Julian Alexander; his brothers, Michael (Mary), Dave (Patricia), Manuel, and Edward (Madeline); and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless friends he also considered his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Miguel and Mary Esperanza; and brothers, Rafael and Arthur.
Alex was loved by all and is going to be greatly missed.
