A HEARTBROKEN family are raising funds in memory of a well loved partner, son and uncle who suddenly died in July.

Alex Anslow suddenly died in July due to heart complications, leaving his family in a state of shock and morning.

Now, his mum is aiming to raise funds for a charity in his memory by selling handmade-goods in Hedge End.

Alex was 27-years-old and was born in Princess Anne Hospital in 1993.

In 2000, Alex's dad, Andrew, died suddenly of heart failure when Alex was only six-years-old.

Daily Echo:

Alex attended Wildern Secondary school in Hedge End and left Wildern with good GCSE results.

He went on to Eastleigh College to study catering. His first job as a teenager was at J Henry’s Fish and Chip Shop.

Before he died Alex was working for Tesco at their distribution centre.

His step dad, Roger, told the Daily Echo how Alex loved his family, his friends, cars, and a wide selection of music.

He was a proud uncle to his two nieces and two nephews and was a well-loved member of the family.

In March, Alex and his girlfriend were able to purchase their first house just as lockdown was announced and set about turning it into the home of their dreams.

But on July 23, Alex suddenly died during the early hours of the morning surrounded by those he loved.

Alex had died from heart failure. He had had no symptoms, was fit and well and had just finished a shift at work.

Speaking about Alex, his bosses at Tesco said: "He was our definition of a gentleman, honest, genuine, always polite, willing to listen and then give his opinion in a calm, constructive manner.

"It should be a matter of great pride to have raised a son with these personal qualities and his natural, self-effacing charm."

On November 25, Alex's mum and a few of her friends will be hosting a stall selling handmade Christmas gifts and cards at Hedge End market between 10am and 2.30pm.

They are raising money for Cardiomyopathyu.
