Alexander “Alex” Flores was born on October 7th, 1963, in Mason, Texas to Trinidad and Beatrice Flores.
Alex was born in Texas, but he was raised in San Diego, California. He decided to permanently move to Lubbock, Texas in 2014, to be close to his parents before their passing.
Alex was a walking testimony to everything he had been through in his life. He was shot at a young age and that resulted in him having to be in a wheelchair. He continued to move forward though and keep God at the center of his life. This is what kept him strong!
On April 4th, 1995, Alex married Misty Flores in San Diego, California. Though they divorced later in life, they remained best friends and always kept in contact.
Alex graduated from San Diego City College, in December of 2011, with a Behavioral Sciences degree in alcohol and drug studies. He became a drug counselor to help people get clean and off the streets.
Alex was a person that you could vent to, or just ask him for advice, and he would always have an answer for you or just hear you out. He loved the Word of the Lord. His favorite bible verse was ROMANS 8:38, “AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PEOPLE.”
Left to cherish his memory are his sisters and brothers: Helen Gonzales (Joseph Sr.), Elicio Flores, Sr. (Mary), Trinidad Flores, Jr (Layla), Ruthie Smith (Ruben), Rachel Smith (James), Sally Gutierrez (Ray); sister-in-law, Annette Flores; and a host of nieces and nephews from Cali-Texas, and in between.
Alex is preceded in death by his parents, Trinidad and Beatrice Flores; his sister, Eunice Flores; and his brothers, Ezequiel Flores, Felix Flores, Sr., and Johnny Flores, Sr.
Alex Passed away on October 28th, 2023 with his family by his side.
