I ran into Alex about two weeks ago and didn't even recognize him. I used to babysit him and his brother Axel when they were about 10 years old. I told him to tell the family I said hello and I went home and thought about all the crazy memories I had with those kids. I had a lot of fun with them. Even though the twins would fight ( as brothers do) they were fantastic children. Axel was good at making me laugh and I will always appreciate his kind heart and patience with my son who was a baby at the time. Axel, your always gonna be that little ornery boy to me and it breaks my heart to know I'll never meet you as an adult. Thanks for the memories bud.

I knew Axel (and his brother Alex) through substitute teaching at Buckeye Career Center. I pray that Jesus shows your family comfort through this tough time of losing a son and brother.

To the family, Axel was one hell of a guy. He knew how to get the pot a stirring but with that being said he would do anything for anyone. Understand that how he went was not the greatest, but we also know that God only picks the perfect timing. I've always been told, God only picks the best and only the best goes young. Not sure why God would have this happened but what I do know is Axel did know the Lord. May you rip buddy and fly high. Prayers for the family!!

Axel took care of my lawn for some time. He was always very polite and friendly. He always wanted to be sure it was perfect. We had many conversations and he was always upbeat. He is missed.

Axel, was a good kid and dis good in school I knew him through my mom and went to buckeye career center with him. An camp buckeye didn't know him real well but well enough.
