Alex Vargas (Berrien Springs), husband of Nereida and father of Nerialex and Rose Vargas passed away suddenly from heart complications on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at Lakeland Healthcare in St. Joseph, MI. Alex, a former pastor, was well loved by many and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Alex and Nereida made the decision to leave their home in Puerto Rico and come to the Andrews University area over 10 years ago to provide a better life for their girls. They both worked hard to send their daughters through Christian education at Village SDA Elementary School, Andrews Academy, and currently, Andrews University. Nerialex (Senior) and Rose (PT, Second Year) survive their father along with their mother, Nereida, former staff.
Alex's health began to decline several years ago as he faced increasing heart complications. He eventually gave up his job to focus on his health and could often be found taking walks hand-in-hand with his beloved wife, Nereida, on the Andrews University campus.
With all of that being said, the Vargas family needs our support. Please continue to lift them up in prayer and in encouragement during this difficult time. They also need our support financially. Although they would never ask for themselves, friends of the family have created this site in order to provide opportunities for others to help the family in a very practical way-- by aiding them financially as they face funeral expenses and other medical bills.
Whether it is $5 or $500, every gift makes a difference and will help lessen the financial load during this difficult time.
Thank you so much for your continued support of the Vargas family and we look forward to the day when we will see Alex again.
"Even so, come Lord Jesus."
