Alexander Joseph Edge was born December 4, 1983 in Pasadena, CA. From a very young age, Alex loved people. Alex had friends of all ages, and from all walks of life. It was rare for us to go out as a family and not run into one or more of Alex's friends. His closest friends hosted a memorial in town, and approximately 150 people were in attendance. Friends (and parents) that he'd gone to middle school / high school with came to show their respect and share their favorite memory of Alex. He was a good friend, and whether it was making a car repair or offering a shoulder to cry on (and anything in between), there wasn't much Alex wouldn't do for his friends.
He spoke his first sentence (skipped right past the usual first words) at an early age and never looked back. Anyone who knew Alex also knew he loved to talk …
And talk he did! Alex was passionate about all he was interested in. Alex loved to read, and his ability to read quickly astonished those around him. He carried his early love of Louis L'amour novels with him throughout his life He was an expert in Middle Eastern political and social issues, and active in various humanitarian efforts, including Free Tibet.
After high school, he was employed as a CNC machinist. He spent his free time building and driving his "baby", a Honda Civic. He was a respected contributor to the Honda Tech threads, and could often be found at the races either driving his own Honda or working together with a friend.
Alex had a life-long love of motorcycle riding, and was expert both on-road and off-road. Alex also developed a passionate love of photography and bicycle riding.
He began working for MotorcycleDaily.com in his early 20s and contributed both as a journalist and a photographer. His writings have also been published in print in Europe (in both Spanish and English).
Remember Alex for the vibrant, enthusiastic, caring and compassionate individual he was, and carry some of that with you in life.
