Robbed of a full life, Alex died from drug intoxication one day before his 25th birthday. His family and friends will miss him terribly and will never be the same. He took a piece of each of our hearts with him to Heaven. He was a follower of Christ and his Religious Formation bible is where he found and connected to the verse Mark 9:23 that he later tattooed on his back. He had a strong love for family. He tattooed five roses on his arm representing his mom, dad, brother, sister and himself. Later he surrounded the roses with an angel wing all down his arm. All of his visits or calls with family ended with I love you, a hug and a kiss. You could feel his warmth all the time. He was a protector, if someone was being picked on or hurt his instinct was to jump right in and protect that person. There were a number of times where he stood up for someone or protected them even at the risk of getting himself hurt or in trouble. He tattooed a lion on his arm as a representation of being a protector. Alex tried just about every sport and found his love for baseball. His humor was the best. He could make you laugh until you cried. He would do a fun dance, or imitate a character, or just come up with a witty comment to what someone was saying. Alex’s strongest passion was physical fitness and body building. He was so committed to working out and perfecting his body. He became a great inspiration to so many of his friends and many of them asked him to help them build their bodies. He was often referred to as Iron Man. He was the life of the party and truly enjoyed bringing happiness and laughter to all. He enjoyed outdoor music festivals with his friends. He had a love for music and he was musically inclined. The last song he play over and over on the guitar was Redbone’s ‘Come and Get Your Love.’
Alex was very proud to have earned an Associate’s Degree from OCC and he was subsequently accepted into the Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State. He attended Wayne State in the last year and his goals were to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Business someday.
Alex was a big fan of the Marvel Universe and enjoyed EndGame and Guardians of the Galaxy. He would continuously play the Guardians of the Galaxy sound track. We all knew that Alex’s desire was to pull the family back together one way or another and we give credit to his spirit for accomplishing this within days of his passing. He is our Iron Man and the Guardian of our Family’s Galaxy. Gone but never forgotten, R.I.P. Alex St. Pierre.
