Alexander loved spending time with family and friends and we all loved his wonderful sense of humor. He enjoyed the outdoors and nature and any good adventure that involved those things. He also loved animals and was a volunteer for the S. Oregon Humane Society. He studied martial arts for six years.
He was always there to lend a helping hand, and had a tender heart toward all who knew him.
Alexander had recently joined the United States Marine Corps and would have served his country courageously.
He loved his best friend and girlfriend, Heidi. We share her sorrow and she will forever be a part of our family.
He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Valentine and William Gass; father, Donald Freis; and brother, Gabriel Freis. He is also survived by his sisters, Leah, Ashley, Kate, and Sara; and his stepsisters, Kyra and Rhianna. He was preceded in death by his brother, Billy Freis.
A sunset memorial service was held in one of AJ's favorite places, Lithia Park on Friday, August 30, 2013.
AJ, we love you and will never forget your loving spirit.
