The gathering will take place in Memorial Church, with doors to the sanctuary opening at 6:30. Following the service, at 8:30 pm, the Adams House Faculty Deans will host a reception at their residence.

As many in our community have noted, Alex was more than just an exceptionally intelligent and highly accomplished student—he was a deeply caring and attentive friend who gave generously of himself to those around him. We will miss him greatly.
