Alex B. Wexler Obituary
August 26, 1959 - May 21, 2016 Alex Bruce Wexler of Long Beach, California passed away on Saturday after a long struggle with cancer. He was predeceased by his parents, Thelma Miner and Bernard Lewis Wexler, and is survived by his husband, Gregg Milano, their sons Jacob Milano-Wexler and Michael Crane, and his brother Mark Wexler. Alex was born at Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles, the city that he called home for much of his life. He received his education there, graduating from Hollywood High where he is well remembered by his classmates for his standout performances in many of the school's theatre productions, and later attending Los Angeles City College. He continued his career in acting and producing on the stage and on screen before turning his attention to writing and business. He enjoyed a successful career in real estate development, and authored many projects including the musical Lost in Hollywoodland, which saw a well-received theatrical run in New York City and Los Angeles in 2007. Alex, along with his husband Gregg, was devoted to helping at-risk foster youth and was active in many charitable organizations, notably Kidsave Los Angeles. At the time of his death, he was finishing memoirs of his family's life with their adopted children. They will be published posthumously. A memorial service celebrating the life of Alex Bruce Wexler will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Kidsave.org in memory of Alex Wexler.
