Alex Tavarez was born on July 18, 1950, in Doole, TX to Ramon and Cruz Tavarez. He spent most of his time living in Snyder, TX. He worked for B & F Well Service and then in 2000 moved his family to San Angelo, TX where he resided. He married Ninfa Ynostrosa on November 18, 1982 in San Angelo. They are members of the Church of Christ of 9th & Main St.
Alex enjoyed riding motorcycles, working on things in his garage, tinkering with small engines, watching western movies, spending time with his family and being with his dogs. He was proud of his family and especially his grandkids. But most of all he enjoyed being surrounded by his sisters. They spoiled him with so much love and affection. His last big family gathering was Thanksgiving Day, where all gathered playing cards, eating food and sharing laughs; an everlasting memory for so many. There are no words to describe how much he meant to us and how much he will be missed.
He proceeded in death by a son Elton, granddaughters Leyla Collins and Haylee Rodriguez, parents Ramon and Cruz Tavarez, grandparents Lupe Bonilla and Slim Madera, brother Oscar, brother in law Max Zamorano
