Milton "Alex" Alexandro Holguin

October 30, 1997 — January 9, 2024

Tucson, Arizona

Milton "Alex" Alexandro Holguin, beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle, and friend, passed away on January 9, 2024, in Tucson at the age of 26. Born on October 30, 1997, in Sierra Vista, AZ, Alex brought joy and laughter to everyone he met during his time with us.

A talented barber by trade, Alex's passion for hairstyling was evident from a young age. Upon completing his education at Tombstone High School, Alex pursued his dreams at Hollywood Barber College. It was there that he honed his skills and obtained his barbering license. His dedication and hard work were admired by all who knew him.

To fulfill the requirements for his license, Alex needed a model to practice on. Despite his little brother's initial reluctance to participate, their bond of love prevailed. Beyond simply helping Alex achieve his goals, this experience became a cherished memory for both brothers.

Alex had an incredible personality that left an indelible imprint on those around him. Known for his sense of humor and outgoing nature, he was the life of every party he attended. He had an innate ability to uplift others with his infectious laughter and warm presence. No gathering was complete without Alex's smiling face and witty remarks.

In addition to making people laugh, Alex adored spending time with his friends and cherished family gatherings. These were moments where he could share stories and create lasting memories with his loved ones. His zest for life was never dimmed; instead, it shone brightly through his interactions and the happiness he brought to those closest to him.

Completing barber school was one of Alex's proudest accomplishments; however, nothing made him prouder than being an uncle to his one and only niece. Illiana held a special place in Alex's heart that no one else could occupy. He cherished the bond they shared and relished in being a positive role model in her life.

Alex's passing leaves a void in the lives of many who loved him dearly. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Cruz Mora. Alex is survived by his parents, Milton and Maritona Holguin; his siblings, Marissa, Alexis, Evelyn and Jonathan Holguin; his niece, Illiana; his nephew, Julian; his aunts and uncles, Mark, Sammuel, Lorenzo, Juan Jose, Cruz, Jovita, Monica, Lorenzo Jr., Cesar, Zulma and Juan Jose; as well as his maternal grandmother Jovita Mora and paternal grandparents Juan and Gloria Holguin. In addition to his immediate family members, he is also remembered by numerous cousins and friends who were touched by his presence.

Services to honor Alex's memory will be held on January 19, 2024. A Mass will take place at 10:00 A.M. at St. John's Catholic Church in Tucson (602 W Ajo Way). After Mass, a Visitation will be held at Martinez Funeral Chapels - Tucson (2580 S 6th Ave) from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM with a Rosary at 2:00 PM.

Alex's departure has left an irreplaceable void in our hearts and lives. While we mourn the loss of such an incredible soul taken from us too soon, let us also remember the joy he brought into our world during his time with us. His infectious laughter and genuine love for those around him will forever be etched in our memories.

May Alex find eternal peace as he watches over us with that signature mischievous grin. We will forever carry him in our hearts as we celebrate the beautiful life he lived and the impact he had on each and every one of us. Rest in peace, dear Alex.

Milton "Alex" Alexandro Holguin, amado hijo, hermano, nieto, sobrino, tío y amigo, falleció el 9 de enero de 2024 en Tucson a la edad de 26 años. Nacido el 30 de octubre de 1997 en Sierra Vista, AZ. Alex trajo alegría y risas a todos los que conoció durante su estancia con nosotros.

Un barbero talentoso de profesión, la pasión de Alex por la peluquería era evidente desde una edad temprana. Al completar su educación en Tombstone High School, Alex persiguió sus sueños en Hollywood Barber College. Fue allí donde perfeccionó sus habilidades y obtuvo su licencia de barbero. Su dedicación y arduo trabajo fueron admirados por todos los que lo conocieron.

Para cumplir con los requisitos de su licencia, Alex necesitaba un modelo para practicar. A pesar de la renuencia inicial de su hermano pequeño a participar, su vínculo de amor prevaleció. Más allá de simplemente ayudar a Alex a lograr sus objetivos, esta experiencia se convirtió en un recuerdo muy preciado para ambos hermanos.

Alex tenía una personalidad increíble que dejó una huella imborrable en quienes lo rodeaban. Conocido por su sentido del humor y su carácter extrovertido, era el alma de todas las fiestas a las que asistía. Tenía una habilidad innata para animar a los demás con su risa contagiosa y su cálida presencia. Ninguna reunión estaba completa sin el rostro sonriente y los comentarios ingeniosos de Alex.

Además de hacer reír a la gente, a Alex le encantaba pasar tiempo con sus amigos y apreciar las reuniones familiares. Fueron momentos en los que pudo compartir historias y crear recuerdos duraderos con sus seres queridos. Su entusiasmo por la vida nunca se atenuó; en cambio, brilló intensamente a través de sus interacciones y la felicidad que trajo a sus seres más cercanos.

Completar la escuela de barbería fue uno de los logros de los que Alex se enorgullecía; sin embargo, nada lo enorgullecía más que ser tío de su única sobrina. Illiana ocupaba un lugar especial en el corazón de Alex que nadie más podía ocupar. Él apreciaba el vínculo que compartían y disfrutaba ser un modelo positivo en su vida.

El fallecimiento de Alex deja un vacío en la vida de muchos de los que lo amaban entrañablemente. Le precedió en la muerte su abuelo materno, Cruz Mora. A Alex le sobreviven sus padres, Milton y Maritona Holguín; sus hermanos, Marissa, Alexis, Evelyn y Jonathan Holguín; su sobrina Iliana; su sobrino, Julián; sus tías y tíos, Mark, Sammuel, Lorenzo, Juan José, Cruz, Jovita, Mónica, Lorenzo Jr., César, Zulma y Juan José; así como su abuela materna Jovita Mora y sus abuelos paternos Juan y Gloria Holguín. Además de sus familiares directos, también lo recuerdan numerosos primos y amigos que se sintieron conmovidos por su presencia.

Los servicios en honor a la memoria de Alex se llevarán a cabo el 19 de enero de 2024. Se llevará a cabo una misa a las 10:00 a. m. en la Iglesia Católica St. John en Tucson (602 W Ajo Way). Después de la Misa, se llevará a cabo un velorio en Martinez Funeral Chapels - Tucson (2580 S 6th Ave) de 12:00 p.m. a 4:00 p.m. con un Rosario a las 2:00 p.m.

La partida de Alex ha dejado un vacío irreemplazable en nuestros corazones y nuestras vidas. Mientras lamentamos la pérdida de un alma tan increíble que nos fue arrebatada demasiado pronto, recordemos también la alegría que trajo a nuestro mundo durante su tiempo con nosotros. Su risa contagiosa y su amor genuino por quienes lo rodean quedarán grabados para siempre en nuestra memoria.

Que Alex encuentre la paz eterna mientras nos cuida con esa sonrisa traviesa característica. Siempre lo llevaremos en nuestros corazones mientras celebramos la hermosa vida que vivió y el impacto que tuvo en todos y cada uno de nosotros. Descansa en paz, querido Alex.
