Age 15, passed away on January 20, 2017. Alex was a kind, loving, and charismatic young man. He was born in Kalamazoo on August 7, 2001, the son of Joanna Sanchez. Alex was loved by his mother, his family, friends, teachers and anyone who met him. He was quiet, independent and very smart. Even though he was quiet he always tried to make people laugh. He had many talents. Alex loved to write. He would write poems, raps, and sometimes post videos to share with others. Alex also loved to dance! He could move too, and it was hard to watch Alex and not smile; he was just that kind of kid. Alex was a sophomore at Loy Norrix High School at the time of his passing. He also attended Edison Environmental Science Academy and Maple Street Magnet School of the Arts during elementary and middle school. Alex also enjoyed playing basketball in his spare time with other kids from the neighborhood. We will miss Alex. His spirit will live on and we will do our best to honor his spirit in everything we do. We love you baby! He is survived by his loving mother, Joanna Sanchez; step-father, Agustin Vargas; siblings, Alexis Sanchez, Manuel Trevino, Jacob Trevino, Alana Vargas, Carlos Vargas; grandparents, Solvega Sanchez and Enrique Sanchez; aunt, Stephane Sanchez; uncle, Enrique “Riques” Sanchez; a large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. He was preceded in passing by an uncle, Robert Sanchez.
