The Story

Four year old twins Lucienne and Alexandria lost their father Alex Frantz Ghassan in the tragic 31st Avenue Fire in Oakland, California on December 2, 2016. Alex was a 35-year-old man from Orange, New Jersey, who recently moved to Oakland to provide for his children and advance his career as a director and producer. His twin daughters were his greatest joys in life. He loved them dearly and lived every minute of life for them. In addition to being a devoted father and family man, Alex was a loyal friend.

Many individuals knew Alex as a true lover of life. His creativity flowed in everything that he did. He lived life to the fullest and brought joy to those around him. His presence filled a room and his laughter was contagious. So many people loved Alex and wanted to be around him because he was a genuine and caring person.

We are thankful for memories we have with him and will forever hold him in our hearts. We would like to thank everyone for their kind words, support and prayers. May Alex live on through our hearts, his legacy, and his incredible work.

Donations to Alex’s memorial will be used to secure the future education of his 4-year-old twins Lucienne and Alexandria. His daughters are our daughters so we feel it necessary to start a college fund for them in lieu of their father's loving support.

For more information about Alex and his work, please visit his website at www.AlexGDirector.com.

Thank You,

Family of Alex F. Ghassan
