Alex Lee Fagan, son of Lisa Fagan, brother of Andy Linville, Cory Fagan, Kylah Barnes, and Kelci Fagan, passed away peacefully Saturday October 31, 2020.
Alex was a mobile app developer and worked for Banyan Labs in Memphis. He recently discovered his talent for this and loved it. He had a very bright future in his newly chosen field and was well respected and loved by his peers. Alex was an amazing person. He was beautiful inside and out and would help anyone that asked for it. He was a great friend if you were lucky to be his friend. After graduating from Oak Ridge High School Alex attended Middle Tennessee State University but was a lifelong Kentucky Wildcat fan.
He grew up in Oak Ridge and played basketball for the Boys Club, Jefferson Middle School and Oak Ridge High School. He was an incredible athlete, baseball or basketball. Left-handed and tall, despite his thin frame he could make things happen on the basketball court and could shoot three’s with ease. He never stopped shooting those three’s.
He is terribly missed by his mother, brothers, grandmother, sisters, and other family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Larry Baker; his father, Mike Fagan; his grandmother, Joan Cox; and his best friend, Tony Phillips.
He is survived by his mother, Lisa Fagan. Brothers, Andy and Rebecca Linville and their children Colin and Rowan, and Cory and Kasey Fagan and their son Aiden. Sisters, Kylah Barnes and Kelci Fagan. Grandmother, Barbara Baker. Aunts, uncles, and cousins, and so many special friends including, Roy Yates, Alex Marston, Stacey and Travis Books, Demarcus Williams and all his co-workers and friends at Persevere and Banyan Labs.
Alex’s family is having an outdoor memorial at the quarry on the west end of Oak Ridge (East Quarry
Road Trail) Friday November 20 at 2 EST. Everyone is welcome.
From the parking area- follow the path to the fork (about 0.8 mile). Right is a flat, wider gravel path
with some gradual inclines and 0.5 miles left to the quarry. Left at fork is narrower has roots, rocks
and steeper inclines and path is 0.3 miles left to the quarry. This path is also muddy if there has been
recent rain. Long path takes about 30 mins and shorter about 20 depending on speed, weather, etc...
There will be signs to help you. Sturdy shoes are recommended as the path down to the quarry is also rocky. Walking sticks would be helpful if you use them when you hike. Feel free to bring a folding chair if you want.
Please be responsible and wear a mask during the memorial.
If you are unable to attend in person, you can use the link provided here and on the Davis Funeral Home website in his updated obituary. (This is for as long as signal holds out).
