Alex was preceded in death by his grandfather, Dorval Bell; great-grandparents, Alfred Lott and Mildred Lott, Jerry and Alyce Hinton, Forrest and Willie Gertrude Kittrell, Joseph Henry and Dixie Laverne Bell.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his parents, Jason and Penny Lott; his sister, Julia Lott; grandparents, Ricky and Sandy Lott; grandmother, Lois Bell; and great-grandmother, Audrey Lott, all of Beaumont and his girlfriend Jade Kitchens of Richton.
Alex was a member of the First Baptist Church of Richton and attended West Salem Baptist Church. He was a senior at Richton High School, where he was a member of the RHS Baseball team, a Rebel Scholar, a Mississippi Scholar, a Student Ambassador with People to People, a member of the Fellowship of Christian Students and was dually enrolled at JCJC in Ellisville.
Alex's past year was so joyful, in large part, to the love he shared with Jade. She has been the axis his world turned on, and has been a precious love. Alex's hobbies included playing guitar, hunting, fishing, working on his trucks, riding his four wheeler, drawing and any opportunity to be a guy with his friends. He spent almost a month in Europe this past summer as a People to People Student Ambassador, spending his seventeenth birthday in Zurich, Switzerland and traveling throughout Europe, where he experienced so many wonderful sights and made lifelong friends.
Alex truly enjoyed doing things for others, from going on outings with SAS ladies to spending his last dollar to buy food for homeless people. He had a servant's heart and would do anything to help anyone in need. At the age of sixteen, he made the awesome decision to be an organ donor. In following with his wishes, Alex was able to donate organs to five different people who are forever changed. He will live on, not only in our memories, but also in five other lives.
Jones & Son Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements.
