Mr. Alexander Michael Reali, 25

~~Alexander Michael Reali, age 25 of Buford, passed away on Sunday, September 9, 2018 following a sudden illness.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 4:00-6:00pm at the funeral home.

Mr. Reali was born April 22, 1993 in Brockport, New York.

Our hearts are broken and can't even begin to envision the world without him in it. His charismatic charm, sense of humor and sweet loving heart will be sorely missed.

Alex would want those that he touched to help others that do not have the means to find affordable recovery so I lieu of flowers we ask that you make a donations to the non-profit St Jude's Recovery in Atlanta, Ga.  A GoFundMe page was created in Alex's Memory at  All funds collected will go to their organization to help someone in crisis.

Memorial Park Funeral Home, 2030 Memorial Park Road, Gainesville, GA  30504 is in charge of arrangements.

So sorry for your loss. I was around Alex on several occassions. He was a handsome, bright young man with aspirations and plans for his future. I remember him most whenbhe sat down with a number of us having a dinner at his grandparents house. How sharp he looked in his uniform, dark pants, white shirt and tie on his way to work. He was sharp guy. Love to his family. Gone too soon.

So very sorry for your loss. It is tragic to lose someone so young. I had several occasions to be around Alex. I most remember him stopping to chat with a table of me, neighbors & friends of his grandparents. He was getting ready to leave for work but sat down to chat with all of us there. He was so handsome in his dark pants, white shirt and tie, ready to leave for work. He was outgoing,bright and so friendly to us all. I know he will be missed and I know he had aspirations. Gone too soon! Loving, caring thoughts to all of his family.

I never knew Alex but know how much he meant to his father Aaron— and what Aaron pledged his whole life to that boy. And I know what a dedicated dad he is and my heart and soul ache for him. May Gods grace and the power of the aunt, uncles , grandparents help all to heal in this challenging time
