Alex Castanos Alba
January 11, 1946 - October 18, 2018

Alex C. Alba, 72, of Scottsdale, AZ passed away at 11:36 am on Thur. October 18th at the Mayo Hospital after a long struggle with cancer. He was surrounded by his wife, children and entourage of friends.
Husband to wife Lina, father to sons James, Brian, and Robert. He is remembered as Father in law to daughters Lala, Ellen and Jennifer and Grandfather to children by order Raiden, Azul, Maxwell and Oscar.
Alex was a humble and well read man, with witty intellect and appreciated the simple things in life. He would commonly be found enjoying films, engaging in sarcastic banter with a forgotten cup of coffee close by. Always a student of the world, he shared his wisdom with piety and generosity. He would deny his addiction to sweets and his hankering for burritos. He found solace in the kindness of his grandkids, as they used him in a game of fetch with lollipops.
His life was devoted to the happiness and well being of his best friend and wife of 45 years, Lina. She was his inspiration, his muse and eternal love. His wealth was measured by his temperament and was only exceeded by his admiration for his family and friends.
We will miss you Dad.
