Alex was born in Portland, Maine on May 16, 1998, the son of Craig Carrigan and Christina Floridino.
Alex was a family man above all else. He was very respectful and always greeted you with a wide smile and a warm hug.
Despite being diagnosed with osteosarcoma as a child, Alex never lost that smile and positive attitude. While the cancer robbed Al of his ability to continue playing sports, he was an avid fan. He got to enjoy Celtics and sox games with his dad. Like his dad, Alex was a diehard Steelers fan who would get constant rubbing from the rest of his family, all Pats fans.
Alex really enjoyed going to Cape Cod to visit “Ballgame,” which is what he called his grandpa Ted. He loved their boating trips in the Cape with Ballgame and his partner Rose.
Like most Italians, Alex loved to eat. He really enjoyed his mother’s cooking as well going out to eat.
