Alexander James Metzger, St. George, Utah - On May 26, 2012 our beloved son Alexander James Metzger, age 22, returned home to our heavenly father. Alex came into this world September 9, 1989 in Los Angeles, California in the most adventurous way, and that is the way he chose to live his life.
Alex resided in St. George for the past 12 years with his mother, but spent much time with his family in southern California. He graduated from Dixie High School in 2007, attended Dixie State College where he received his associate’s degree and was currently attending Utah Valley University, majoring in psychology.
He valued his education and loved to learn. Alex was known and loved by so many. He lived each day to its fullest, not wanting to waste one precious moment. He will be remembered for his adventurous spirit, kindness and compassion toward others, and the unconditional love he gave to his family.
Alex was a lively spirit who brought joy and fun to everyone he met; he loved activity, laughing, playing jokes, teasing, trying new things, and spending time with his family. Growing up in both Utah and Southern California, he took advantage of being active and engaging in adventures outdoors: hiking, surfing during yearly beach trips, BMX biking, dirt bike riding, skateboarding, etc.
He is survived by his mother, Anne Lambert Metzger; father, Bryan Metzger; stepmother, Jill Metzger; and his siblings: Morgan, Collin, Madison, Tori, and Haileigh.
