Alex “Phoenix” James Ekern, age 23, of Branson, Missouri, passed away Thursday, May 2, 2019. He came into this life March 26, 1996, in Saint Maries, Idaho, the son of Mark and Margaret (Weldy) Ekern.

Phoenix enjoyed hanging out with his friends, playing video games, kayaking, running, listening to music, and working at Menard’s. He was full of fun and lived life to the fullest. His passing will leave and empty spot in many hearts but will place smiles on those same faces when memories are replayed.
