Alex was a recovering addict and was active in helping with drug addiction recovery throughout Ohio and Texas. He fought a courageous battle with the disease of addiction and wanted to help anyone else that suffered from this epidemic. Alex’s hobbies included 4 wheeling and fast cars. He also loved spending time with his dogs, Aida and the late Marlie. Alex leaves his parents Sam and Mary, siblings Sammy IV, Justin (Shantell), and Haylee, his nephew, Jace Alexander, his paternal grandparents, Samuel Jr. and Edyth “June” Barker and his maternal grandparents, David and Yvonne Ryan, along with many other relatives.
