Obituary Notices and Memorials


BEGUE, Alejandro Alex
BEGUE, Alejandro 'Alex' Was a loving father, son, brother, friend and mentor. He had two children names Alexis and Mateo Begue whom he leaves his legacy to. He lived in the Antelope Valley for 35 years. He came to the United States from Mendoza, Argentina when he was only 20 years old and came with only $18.00 in his pocket. He did not speak English and only had the skills he had learned from his father whom was also a jeweler. After 10 years of working as a bench man and increasing his skills as a jeweler, Alex purchased his own jewelry store. He then began creating his legacy. Over 30 years, he designed the visions of his clients and turned them into masterpieces. He was a master goldsmith and a so called 'old school jeweler' because he created his jewelry by hand. As his customers would talk about their visions of what they wanted their merchandise to look like, Alex would draw it as they spoke. He had a beautiful imagination and the love for his work showed in his creations. For years he created masterpieces that touched the lives of many. He helped anyone and everyone he could; he believed in paying it forward. He gave his heart and showed it through his work and gestures. That same love and passion he used in his work, he shared with the people he loved. Family and friendships were his priority and meant everything to him. He helped so many of them establish themselves and start their own businesses. He will always be remembered as the man who always gave his heart and expected nothing in return. His love for his people was far greater than one could imagine and until his last moments, he was filled with the love from those people. Alex died on August 11, 2015 at he age of 57 years old at Palmdale Regional Medical Center. Although he is no longer here physically, he remains in the hearts of many as well as in the masterpieces he created. For a man that leaves such a great legacy will be forever missed but never forgotten. Arrangements handled by Joshua Memorial Park, Lancaster
