Alejandro Gabriell Rojas-Garcia was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 20, 1980. He was an intelligent and humorous man who saw and inspired the best in everyone he met. He was a beloved son, father, brother, and friend. He is survived by his daughter Brianna Rojas and his son Alejandro Elian Rojas; five siblings; Enid Rojas, Rebecca Rojas, Aleida Silva-Garcia, Veronica and John Neumann, and his parents Aleida Garcia and Wilfredo Paul Rojas. Alex was a student at Temple University’s School of Media and Communications. He graduated with honors from the Community College of Philadelphia, and thereafter transferred to Temple University's School of Media and Communication where he was majoring in Marketing. Recently, he was also working with a group of attorney’s to provide legal workshops in the community.
Alex enjoyed creating music beats and writing lyrics. He excelled in his poetry and lyrical writing abilities. He won the Pennsylvania Creative Written Expression Contest with his poem, “There is Always an I in Choice". His poetry dealt with real issues of our time and inner struggles that we all feel at some point in our lives. He rapped with a group called “Latin Linxx" in his late teen and early adult years. He continued to write lyrics throughout his life. Alex interests included pool tournaments, domino tournaments, weight lifting, and martial arts. Alex also studied computer repair, and he was very tech savvy. He loved to fish and he introduced many of his friends to that past time.
Alex had many friends and he always brought laughter and a smile to each of their faces. His friends called him either ‘Luchi’ or ‘Lex’. As any young adult, he enjoyed hanging out with friends in his spare time. Tragically, on Saturday January 24th, 2015 Alex was followed to his car by a cowardly criminal who shot at his car multiple times while the car was in motion. The police report that the car engine was still running when they arrived, and he was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital at the time of arrival. Please help us to find justice for Alex and to honor his memory.
