Alex Smith passed away on July 1st after trying to save his little brother Chris. He was only 16 years old and would've been 17 this July 28th. He is the true definition of a hero. He touched the lives of many and always put others before himself. We can all learn a lesson and more from this beautiful soul. He was never afraid to be himself and do what he saw best. Selfless, strong and courageous. His friends and family meant the most to him. Alex is survived by his brother Chris, sisters Briana and Emma, his longterm girlfriend and future fiance April, and parents Tammie and Scott.   

Please help our family raise money to help cover the life celebration, funeral and transportation costs. Any donation is greatly appreciated.

If you wish to bring a side dish you are more than welcome to.

The Celebration of Life for Alex will be held on Saturday, July 12th @ 4pm. If parking is full please park across the street at Aloha High School. Our family will continue to keep everyone updated on Alex's Facebook page, as well as this page.

We thank everyone who is able to contribute. It means a lot to our family.

The celebration will be held at: 
the Aloha Church of God
18380 SW Kinnaman Rd
Aloha, OR 97007

I made a ceramic in memory for Alex. I made it for your family so you have more good memories of him. I am in choir class with Chris so if you would like to have it I will bring it to Chris the next time I see him. I used to be friends with him at school. Alex was always the funny guy.
