Alejandro made his presence to Ignacio and Mercedes Lechuga on July 17,1962. He was a joy in his parents’ hearts.
He had an adventurous soul as a toddler and continued throughout his adult life. He played football in middle school. In the summer months, you could find him spending time with his friends or riding dirt bikes.
There would be touch football that would soon become tackle football with some of the neighborhood kids in the front yard. Later when he turned 13, he would spend his time cruising or racing with his sister Dee.
He enjoyed taking road trips with Gloria and Dee. He graduated from Cooper High School. Soon after he entered the work force, doing seismographs and was on the survey crew, working all over Texas and New Mexico. During this time he was briefly married in his early 20's.
When he decided to move back to Lubbock, he found employment with Furr's Warehouse as an order picker and forklift driver. He did work as a tow truck driver before going into construction. His last employment was with Park Towers in Lubbock.
The last two years of his life, he had developed medical issues. On April 18th, 2023, Alejandro left this world to be with our Lord and Savior. At the time of his death he was surrounded by his siblings at his bedside. He was pronounced deceased at 7:04pm at Lakeside Rehab Hospital, Lubbock, Texas.
