Our beloved son, brother and uncle Alex Tucker, passed away from heart failure on Sept. 19, 2012. Alex was born April 6, 1982 and never slowed down from the moment he learned to walk. A natural athlete, he participated in many sports, his favorites being ice hockey, skateboarding and snowboarding. He also enjoyed skiing after his accident. Surviving a climbing accident March 18, 2006, he became a quadriplegic, and still rarely slowed down. He lived life on his own terms, had a great time, and made many friends along the way.
He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
