Alex had two main passions in life: his family and his work. He once mused about familial bond he shared with his parents: "The level of the relationship, the closeness that my mother and I have, and that me and my father have, as well as the closeness of the three of us together is so strong that we are the best of friends."


May Álex Rest In Peace.
