J. Alex Huddleston
It is with great sadness that the family of J. Alex Huddleston (Alex), 28, of Overland Park, KS, announces his passing on Saturday, October 27, 2018 in Prairie Village, KS.
Alex was born July 5, 1990 in Merriam, KS to Leigh Huddleston. He graduated from Shawnee Mission East High School and earned his BA in Communications from The University of Missouri Kansas City.
An art enthusiast and music fanatic, both Alex’s work and also his leisure time often revolved around his passion for craft beer. During baseball season, he could frequently be found at The K, cheering on his beloved Royals. Alex spent his life in the Kansas City area, but felt at home in the natural beauty of Colorado and the Pacific Northwest.
Alex will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Leigh Huddleston of Overland Park, KS; his grandparents Linda and John Gorman of Overland Park, KS and Jim Huddleston and Marilyn King of Lawrence, KS; multiple other family members who loved him dearly and wonderful friends who were like family; and his dog, Gem.
Friends and family are invited to a memorial reception Sunday, Nov. 4 from 12-4 p.m. at the VIP Backstage Lounge @ CrossroadsKC, 1830 Locust St Unit A, Kansas City, MO 64108 (Access via parking lot on the Oak St. side of the block. Look for the Glass Doors.)
