Mr. Alexander S. Carranco was called into the arms of the Lord on January 31, 2011, at the age of 49. Alex was born on June 12, 1961, in Beeville, Texas, to Manuel and Lydia Carranco.

He is survived by five brothers; Arnold (Jessica) Carranco of Beeville, Texas, Lawrence Carranco of San Antonio, Texas, Michael, Manuel and Lucas Carranco, all of Beeville, Texas; two sisters, Sandra Carranco and Joyce (Greg) Gallow, both of San Antonio, Texas; and several nieces and nephews.

Alex graduated from A.C. Jones High School in 1980, and attended South West College in San Marcos, Texas, and studied Journalism. He enjoyed the music of Kiss and enjoyed sharing their music with his brothers and sisters and all his friends. Alex was very kind, humble and had a heart that would make everyone smile. His greatest gift was serving his loving God, helping his church and serving as lector and altar boy until the age of 18. Alex also helped the Holy Name Society during baseball season and by being a bat boy to help his Christian baseball team. Alex was a very gentle man, who was given a heart of gold and shared his Christian faith with all who would listen. He enjoyed spending quality time with his friends and enjoyed skateboarding, playing baseball and football. He will be missed by all. Alex is now with his loving God looking upon us and is keeping us safe by protecting and guiding us in the direction of God’s Law.

To Manuel - Lila and his brothers and sisters. My condolences to you all. Alex was a remarkable man. He had a big heart - a loving heart and a wonderful heart. I will miss my cousin so much most of all the cards he would send me on Mothers Day and Christmas always thinking of others. This last Christmas card I got from him went like this - Have a Happy Holiday Season. If you all should win the Lotto in 2011

Don't forget about me. Alex.

I will cherish this card forever.

I Love You All.

Your Cousin Soveida Hoffmann.
