Alexander Paul "Alex"Richter, age 54, of Dresher PA died Monday, February 4, 2019, at Abington Hospital.

Alex was born in Cavite City, Philippines at Sangley Point Naval Station. He is the beloved son of Geri (nee Pawlowski) Richter and the late Robert "Butch" Richter, Jr.
He was a member of the Upper Dublin High School Class of 1982.

Alex was an avid Philadelphia Flyers and Eagles Fan. He was thrilled to see the Eagles finally win a Super Bowl, but his greatest passion was music and more recently his love for Jesus. Alex loved a variety of music. He was founder and CEO of Hard N' Fast, a rock n' roll newsletter. He loved going to concerts and interviewing musicians and bands. He had many stories he loved to share with his friends and fans.

In the late 80's Alex used his writing skills to become a Rock Journalist and launched the publication, "Hard N' Fast."He conducted numerous interviews with rock performers and record industry figures and became friends with many. He always had a smile on his face and brought a sense of humor to many backstage areas. Alex's contributions to the Rock World displayed a comprehensive knowledge and appreciation of music.

Alex touched a lot of people in his lifetime. He was kind and had a generous heart. He left this world a much better place than he found it and would ask people to do the same. His favorite quote was, "Pay it forward." He lived by those words as an Organ Donor.

In addition to his mother, Alex is survived by his brother Robert A. Richter, III and his beloved dog Riley.

Relatives and friends are invited to Alex's Life Celebration Memorial Service on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 4:00 PM at the New Life Presbyterian Church, 2015 Limekiln Pike, Dresher, PA 19025. Interment will be Private.

Alex was one of a kind and was a very gracious and polite person. I knew him from social media as well and he always took time to share his life through videos that he posted and he would also include his dog Riley in his videos too. I must say that even though Alex struggled with some monumental health issues that he shared with us he always would push himself to please others. I remember last summer or so back in 2018 Alex spent an entire day baking chocolate chip cookies for one of his church functions and he had a white apron on and he was taking pictures of the chocolate chip cookies that he baked. Wow I think he literally baked hundreds of cookies as I remember Alex posting a video saying he baked something like over a couple hundred cookies that day. I bet there were times Alex probably did not feel that great either with his health but he would push himself sometimes over the top just to put a smile on the faces of people to make people happy. I believe someone like Alex only comes around once in a lifetime. He was so nice to share his thoughts and what he was thinking and feeling on any given day. He was very honest and he had integrity. Alex was very gifted and very articulate in expressing how he felt with his choice of words. Alex not only could capture your attention but Alex could hold on and maintain everybody's attention because he was so interesting and Alex also had a great sense of humor as well. He had it all with a super great mind and thoughtful and caring and just a wonderful person all around but unfortunately his health had limited him and restricted him from doing more of the things that he wanted to do and I'm sure if his health issues did not get in the way he could have done more. Last summer also he took great pictures of rock concerts that he went too so it was nice to see Alex enjoying himself and he has also met a lot of rock bands and he would even share the pictures for us to see. It was nice to see him having some fun. Alex has left a very impressive lasting impression and I have found him to have been a very inspirational guy. He will be greatly missed and the world will not be the same without him but Alex will always be in our thoughts and in our prayers. I once showed one of the videos that Alex did to my dad and my dad liked Alex saying that Alex is very interesting and very articulate as I thought so too. My dad said to me after watching one of the videos that Alex did that "Alex is a Saint" hey how about that and I agree with my dad 1000% that Alex most definitely was a "Saint" God Bless Alex and all the people who were lucky to have known him and share his life with him. He will always be remembered as a loving and kind person and again even though you could tell that his health issues were bothering him Alex always wanted to make people laugh a little and put a big smile on people that he came in contact with. God Bless Alex Now And Forever.

Alex was in the same grade as my brother, David. they rode the bus together and after school we would all meet at the Park in Aiden Lair to hang out. Alex came to my brother's funeral and when we met it brought back so many good memories of when life was simple. Alex will be missed.

Heather Williams on Feb 12, 2019

I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew Alex through social media and his videos but despite his problems he always had a huge smile, a few tears but most importantly he always, somehow made me smile. Thank you Alex for reminding me how precious life is and to pay it forward. May you be at peace. My deepest condolences to the family. X Heather

There’s nothing Alex wouldn’t do to help someone in need. His heart was as big as the Universe. His smile and laugh was infectious. Through our love of music, we formed a friendship that will live on in my heart forever! Geri, our deepest condolences to you. May God wrap his arms around you and comfort you during this difficult time. Alex, we’ll never forget you!
