Born in Passaic, Alex was raised in San Diego, CA to Sharon (Rockwell) Messier and Alexander Messier II. He graduated from Emmaus High School in PA, Class of 2008 and he also graduated the Lineman class at NCC in PA, Class of 2016. He was a very hard worker and thoroughly enjoyed his career with The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union #126, in PA. Above anything else, his all-time favorite job was being a Dad to his two sons, Gavin and Gabriel. Alex had a dream to bring his sons to every state in America, just like he had almost done himself. He enjoyed spending time at the ocean, kayaking, hiking, skateboarding, taking long bike rides, and making spicy meals that were painful to eat. He couldn’t wait to share all of these things and more with his boys, Gavin and Gabriel. He had a deep appreciation, admiration, and respect for his family, who always came first in his life, even though he wouldn’t think twice to help a stranger, or anyone in need.
