Alexander Ridgley Trauernicht, 40, of Johns Island, South Carolina, entered into eternal rest Sunday, August 25, 2019. His funeral service will be held Saturday, August 31, 2019 at the International Church of God, 1560 Ashley River Road, at 1:00 p.m. Interment at Live Oak Memorial Gardens following the service.

Alexander was born August 15, 1979 in Charlotte, North Carolina, son of Sharon L. Trauernicht and Timothy R. Trauernicht. He was a manufacturing technician. Alex loved God, his family and friends, and all animals. He had a huge heart full of love and kindness which he displayed to everyone, from those he'd known his entire life, to the stranger that needed help. We will miss his smile, that bear-hug that only he could do, his pranks that made us all laugh, and his love that he spread over everyone he met. He will be greatly missed!

Alexander is survived by his mother, Sharon and step-father Victor Campbell of Johns Island, SC; father, Timothy and step-mother Tera Trauernicht of Columbia, MD; sister, Lauren T. Ambrose and nephew, Caleb M. Ambrose of Johns Island, SC; step-brother, Brendan L. Campbell of Mt Pleasant, SC; step-sister, Mojgan Zimmer of Columbia, MD; fiancé, Candice Sinclair and her children Phelan Sinclair and Elijah Sinclair all of Johns Island, SC.

Memorials may be made to International Church of God, 1560 Ashley River Road, Charleston, SC 29407.
