Obituary for Alexander Adam "Alex" Yager

Alexander Adam "Alex"  Yager
Alex Yager

Alexander "Alex" Adam Yager, 17, of Atlantic, Iowa, passed away Thursday February 21, 2013, at Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa.
Alexander Adam Yager was born on June 1, 1995, in Madison, Wisconsin to Daniel C. & Lynette (Rourick) Yager. As a young child, he took pleasure in taking walks through the timber and countryside and throwing rocks into the trickling water of the gentle creek near his country home. He loved to catch fireflies, raise butterflies from chrysalis, and thoroughly enjoyed his aquarium hobby throughout the years. He had a passion for video games and was computer savvy. He adored playing with Dad, snuggling with Mom and raising butterflies with his dear sister. He brought meaning and joy to every life he touched. Alex was cherished deeply by his sister, parents and those who loved him. His compassion for people and overwhelming love for those in his life deeply touched so many.
Alex loved to laugh. He loved life. He loved people. He loved God and was comforted by his love for Jesus. He was blessed with the extraordinary perception of sensing people's feelings and cared so much for them.
He loved his sister and parents wholeheartedly and gave them such enormous joy and brought special meaning and overwhelming love to their lives and to all those he touched.
Throughout the struggles of his sweet young life—he held his head high and endured—never giving up his faith in people and love for those who loved him so. He loved his family and friends dearly and will be sorely missed.
Alex is survived by his parents: Daniel and Lynette Yager and his sister Emily Yager of Atlantic, IA; grandmothers: Louella Lindenburg of Madison, WI and Donna Rourick of Atlantic, IA, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Preceding him in death is one grandfather: Dale Rourick, and one cousin: David Saunders.
