Obituary for Alexis A. Montanez

September 7, 2019
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Alexis A. Montanez passed away suddenly on September 7, 2019. He was the beloved husband of Erica (nee Coss); loving father of Alexier, Diomany and Jayden; stepfather of David Garcia; son of Antonio and Carmen Montanez; brother of Luis and Javier (Christina); grandson of Juana Pagan; uncle of Mya and Javi Montanez. Also surviving are many aunts, uncles and cousins.

There isn't just one word to describe Alex but if we had to pick one he was a humanitarian. He loved helping people, from selflessly donating his time to help anyone in need as well as being a kind and considerate officer. He was generous to many social causes and believed in the greater good to the community he selflessly served to protect everyday in Philadelphia. He was devoted to his city, he loved the Eagles to the Flyers. He was a prankster with all of his family and friends. His personality and smile  lit up the room which brought smiles and laughter to everyone he touched. His strong Catholic beliefs and family upbringing made him a devoted and loving husband, father, son, brother and friend to us all. We will never forget him. May he Rest In Peace always.
