MHS Alum's Life Was 'Celebration of Love'

David Edward Alexandroff died last week, just days after his 26th birthday.

David Edward Alexandroff, 26, of Moorestown, died Feb. 7, surrounded by family.

David was born Feb. 4, 1987, in Scranton, PA, the son of Eugene and Linda Alexandroff. He attended the Arc of Burlington County, St. John of God (Archbishop Damiano School), and Cherry Hill Adult Training Center. He graduated in 2008 from Moorestown High School while at Archbishop Damiano. He also received exemplary medical care while at the A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children and Cooper University Hospital.

David’s life was a celebration of love, caring and perseverance. David enjoyed the companionship provided by his nurses from Bayada, being outside with his dogs, walks, movies, music, listening to stories and attending his sister’s athletic events. In his short life, he touched many lives, including former Philadelphia Eagle Vince Papale—inspiration for the movie Invincible—who attended his high school graduation ceremonies and gave joy to all. David attended Resurrection Parish (St. Casimir), in Riverside, and St. Michael the Archangel Church, in Philadelphia.

David is preceded in death by his twin brother, Jeffrey; grandparents, Emil and Anna Alexandroff; and numerous aunts and uncles.
