Obituary for Alex Drake

Alex Drake, 30 passed away on October 9th, 2019 in Wausau.He attended Wausau West High School and graduated from Store Front Learning Center.  Alex was a kind-hearted and gentle soul who had a great sense of humor with an infectious laugh. He had a love for animals and nature, and enjoyed spending time up-north with his family and friends; boating, fishing, and sitting around the campfire. 

   He is survived by his parents Mike and Katie Drake, brother Carter Drake, sister Chloe Drake, grandmother Kathy Drake, grandfather Paul Hand, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.  

 He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Thomas and Judith McCarthy, his paternal grandparents, Gary Drake and Sharon Hand, and cousins, Elliot Stieber, Easton Shryne, and Max Rich.

 Despite the love and support of so many people that cared deeply for Alex, and his own strong and dedicated struggle to stay clean and sober, his disease of addiction took his life. We grieve at his passing, but we are relieved that his suffering is over, and he is finally at peace. 

There will be a Celebration of Life on Friday, October 18, 2019 in the Banquet Center at The Bar and Restaurant;10302 Market St, Rothschild, WI 54474. Visitation will be 4-7 followed by a service at 7.  

If you, or someone you know suffers from addiction, we encourage you to reach out and seek help. It’s never too late. 

Mid Wisconsin Cremation Society is assisting the family at this time. Online condolences can be expressed at
