Alexander Crouch

Alexander Pancraty "Alex" Crouch

24, Fortville, passed away Sunday, February 24, 2013. Alex was born in Indianapolis, IN on April 9, 1988 to parents, William M. "Bill" Crouch, II and Hera P. (Vareldzis) Crouch. He graduated from Mt. Vernon High School and attended Vincennes University, where he became a member of Delta Gamma Iota Fraternity. Alex worked as a grounds keeper for Royal Highlands Golf Club in Knightstown, IN. He attended Second Presbyterian Church and Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

Alex was a truly wonderful young man who was loved by everyone he met. He never met a stranger and would give the shirt off his back, especially to those he felt needed his compassion the most. He always brought a positive outlook and a smile that lit up the room, and a unique gift and love for the elders in his path. He particularly loved fishing, golf, the ocean, animals, and his friends. He had a very special relationship with his little sister Ari, and most of all, he loved his Mother Hera more than words could ever say.

Alex is survived by his parents, Bill and Hera Crouch; sister, Ari Crouch; maternal grandmother, Aristea Pappas; paternal grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Crouch; aunt, Hayden Crouch Barber (Vance); uncle, Dr. Basil Vareldzis; cousins, Cameron Pikula and Ashton Barber; and godfather, Kris Lienert.

Alex was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Bill Pappas and James Crouch; and uncle, James R. Crouch.

Funeral services will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at Second Presbyterian Church, 7700 N. Meridian Street, Indianapolis, where calling will be held prior to services from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m.
