Alexander Tierney, a resident of Danville, died suddenly June 19 at the age of 23.
He was born April 26, 1985, and always lived life to its fullest. After graduation from San Ramon Valley High in 2003, he enlisted in the Marines, where he served from 2003 to 2007. He fought bravely in Iraq and after completing his service, started a new career as project engineer in construction management.
He was an inspiration to all who knew him, a brave young man who showed strength and confidence. This U.S. Marine never shied from showing his love with a hug and kiss.
He was the son of Colin and Katrina Tierney; brother to Corinne; stepson of Gloria; stepbrother to Sarah and Megan; and cherished by his Nana, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
