Alexander Held

January 14, 1992 — May 10, 2014

Alexander W. Held, 22, of East Nassau passed away on May 10, 2014 at his home. Born in Albany he was the loving son of William and Jacqueline (Clayton) Held. Alex graduated Columbia High School in 2010 and was most recently taking classes at Hudson Valley Community College. While attending college Alex worked at Burden Lake Country Club and was the Devil Dawg, the mascot for the Albany Devils ice hockey team. He enjoyed the outdoors and loved hiking, camping and sitting by the campfire with family and friends. Alex gained many of his friends through scouting. He started scouting with Cub Scout Pack 166 in Nassau and went on to become an Eagle Scout with Gold Palm for Troop 166 of Nassau. Alex was also an avid Boston sports fan, in fact the only Albany Devils game that he was unable to attend as the Devil Dawg was due to the fact that he was at a Red Sox game.

In addition to his parents Alex is survived by his sister Mackenzie Held of East Nassau, grandmother Carol Clayton of Stow Mass., uncle, Bradley Held of Carlisle Mass., aunts, Susan Amero of Townsend Mass., Diane Clayton-Macheski of East Greenbush, and several wonderful cousins.
