Alejandro Flores Jr.


Alejandro Flores Jr., 54, died on Monday, November 27, 2023, in Columbus, Indiana.

Alejandro was born November 19, 1969, to Alejandro Flores Sr. and Carmen Vega Ortiz in Bronx, New York. Alejandro attended trade school in his earlier years and was a certified electrician. He grew up in between New Jersey and New York, before moving to the Columbus area.

Alejandro was a man of many talents and a jack of all trades. He was a skilled electrician, computer geek, and was employed at Toyota as a laser cutter. Alejandro loved everyone, and his energy and laughter were infectious to everyone around him and could light up any room, and bring smiles to everyone around him. Alejandro was a family man, was highly protective of those that he loved, and enjoyed spending quality time with them, whether it be boating or putting on a barbecue. He also enjoyed playing his PS4, and drag racing in his younger years.

Alejandro is survived by his father, Alejandro Flores Sr. of Puerto Rico; his children; Jessica Boespflug, Cristopher Melchor, Robert Alexander, Matthew Alexander, Eric Alexander, and Kevin Alexander; his brothers; Israel Ortiz (U.S. Navy, RET.), Abelardo Ortiz, Reynaldo Ortiz; sisters, Jennifer Flores, Eyra Martinez, Maria Fraser, eleven grandchildren and best friend Keith Garris.
