Graydin Mikell Alexander

Mr. Graydin Mikell Alexander previously known as Mikell Alexander Nagy and Michael Nagy, of Geneva, Ohio, born on March 9 in (I am not allowed to tell what year) to Patricia Nagy and the late Mike Nagy, passed away at age 29 (that was his story and I'm sticking to it) on July 10, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. Graydin graduated from Harvey High School in Painesville and Lakeland Community College. He also attended Cleveland State University and Kent State University where he was a member of Delta Lambda Phi fraternity. He studied both Art and Communications. Graydin was the loving husband of Jared Marino (of Orange County, California) with whom he shared a wonderful and happy life and had the home of his dreams. Graydin had a difficult childhood, but was able to make himself over like a phoenix rising from the ashes of rural Ohio.

He was preceded in death by his beloved dog, Dax, whom he treated like a queen on earth. Graydin is survived by his brother, David; and sister, Darlene, sister-in-law Carly and his nieces and nephews and 100s of friends and admirers. He enjoyed drinking, dancing, drama, copious amounts of television and junk food, making new friends, expensive travel, homemaking, dinner parties, and arts and crafts, tarot cards, horoscopes, and laughing his butt off. He was an amazing decorator and hair dresser. He worked in retail clothing sales, early childhood education, the entertainment industry and for the Aids Task Force of Cleveland as an educator and event planner. He was passionate about LGBTQ issues and fought hard for equal rights and recognition for his community. He was a Proud Gay Man, Proud Athiest and a Proud Democrat. He was especially loved by animals and children whom he treated with absolute affection and spoiled like crazy. Donations in Graydin's name should be sent to the Humane Society of Seattle, The Elton John Aids Foundation, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center or the . Graydin was extremely generous in his short lifetime and gave to many social service organizations.

He would also love for you to wear a wig and heels and drink some champagne on his behalf.
