On May 16, 1953, Alejandro was born to Alejandro Ogas Sr. and Cecilia B. Ogas in Roswell, New Mexico. He proudly enlisted and served his country in the U.S. Army, and he was honorably discharged after completing his term. Prior to retirement, Alejandro worked at Lovelace Regional Hospital as a supervisor cook. He loved to go cruising in his chick magnet pickup, listening to oldies, and going to car shows. He was a New England Patriot fan.

My Tio Alex and his stepgrandson, Mundito, would go on adventures, as they would call it, with Mundito riding his ATV along his side. They would go down the street and alleyways so that Mundito and his Papo could go looking for evidence, and they were the pair of “Crime Scene Investigators.” Although my Tio didn’t have any biological children of his own. He was given the gift, joy, and love to truly be blessed to be called Papo thru the eyes of Raymundo Sanchez Jr, and for that, we are truly grateful because it put a smile and contentment and worth on my Tio’s face every time we saw them together. My Tio Alex was taken much too soon from his family and friends, and he will be greatly missed! We Love you, Tio Alex.
