Alex K. Moss was born in Manhattan, New York, on July 15, 1968. He attended the Upper Saddle River Elementary Schools and graduated from Cavallini Middle School in 1982. He then attended Devonshire College Prep School in Mahwah, New Jersey. After high school, Alex attended Technical Career Institute in Paramus, New Jersey; this training led him to work at Capintec, Inc. for six years. His love of electronics and technology then led him to start working in the cellular industry and eventually owning his own company, Moss Consulting Group, LLC, for 11 years until his passing.
Alex joined the Upper Saddle River Volunteer Ambulance Corps when he was 16. He then joined the Upper Saddle River Fire Department when he turned 18 and graduated from the Bergen County Fire Academy in New Jersey. He was a dedicated firefighter and life member of the Upper Saddle River Fire Department for over 30 years. He also served on the Mahwah Co. 2 Fire Department for three years.
Alex loved live music and had a penchant for the Grateful Dead. He loved their energy and the way it brought his many friends together as one big family. He spent many nights during the last several years going to hear many different Dead cover bands and befriending some of the members. He loved listening to music in his many cars that always had fantastic sound systems that were, of course, installed by him.
Alex’s motto was, “Life is too short to drive boring cars.” He loved classic cars and owned many himself. He loved being outdoors, four-wheeling with friends in the woods, the beach, boating and jet skiing, and fishing wherever he could find a body of water.
Alex was a loving and devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend to many. He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Kelli Moss; his daughters, Nicole, Allison, and Jessica Moss; his mother, Susan Antonelli; his sister, Carolyn Moss; his stepfather, Edward Antonelli; and his father, Charles Moss.
He had a special relationship with each of his daughters, or his “three little birds,” as he referred to them. Nicole, his first, transformed him into a dad by opening his loving heart the moment she arrived. Allison, his second, shared his love of sunny beaches and boating. Jessica, his baby, shared his love of cars.
Alex loved his family, friends and, most importantly, serving and helping others.
