Our Boost Mobile family is a melting pot of amazing people with unique stories from all over the word, that is what makes us a very special group. Recently we lost a proud member of our family due to a senseless, hateful crime. Alex was a 6 year Retail Store Manager and was deeply respected and loved by his peers and his family.
Born in El Salvador during the time of the civil war, he came to America with his mother and his sister to flee the unrest. Alex was the oldest of 7 children.
Two of his sisters have shared why he was the rock of their family. Being the oldest and having to learn to survive in a totally different environment at such a young age made him strong and brilliant. He grew up very smart, taking AP classes and computer classes. His siblings always told him he was such a nerd playing the game Magic, League of Legends, watching anything Marvel, especially Guardians of the Galaxy. He also loved going to the movies.
Alex helped take care of his younger siblings from the very start and has never stopped. He was the big brother, had to be the father figure but he never complained. When one of his sisters was little he used to tease her saying that she used to fit in the palm of his hand and as she got bigger, all she would fit in was his arms. Putting a smile on the faces of his family was important to him. He always had something hilarious up his sleeve.
Alex was always putting everyone else before himself. He would protect his younger siblings and help keep them on track with daily routines and make sure they were all okay. That trait was carried out though his adulthood. He has never left his family unsupported with hard work and love. He was humble and would give you the shirt off his own back.
From his sister, "In my eyes he will always be my oldest brother, my father figure, someone I always looked up to and can count on. I can't believe he is really gone, my big baby. I miss him so much. I love you Alex and you will be missed forever in our hearts bro."
Another sister, "I miss him, I keep wanting him to walk through the doors."
Alex left us a hero, as we would all expect from the qualities he possessed. He risked his life to make sure another one's life was okay and for that, we are forever grateful.
He was the support, the rock of his family. Financially they all will be affected by this tragedy. Please find it in your hearts to help with the burden of expenses and income that will now be lost. His family need our love and support in during this trying time.
Thank you. We truly do appreciate it!!!
