Tranquilino Alexander “Alex” Sanabria

Tranquilino Alexander Sanabria, “Alex”

Alex was preceded in death by his father, Arcenio; mother, Agripina, both of Paraguay. He is survived by his wife, Gloria Ferreira; daughter, Summer Sanabria (from a previous marriage), both of Omaha. He leaves behind five siblings: Eufracio, Celia, Lala, Juan, and Maragarita all of Paraguay. He also leaves behind many other family members and friends both in the United States and Paraguay.

Alex was born in the rural farming community of San Pablo, Paraguay where he worked the land with his family. Alex always wanted to return to his own land there to live out his old age and was in the process of finalizing this dream when he passed unexpectedly.

Besides his family, Alex loved many things and many people and was known to be a good friend. He loved his dogs, exercising every day, drinking his morning mate (Paraguayan tea), visiting friends, and was always up for  a good party or barbecue. He will be greatly missed.
