Alexander Michael Angelini, 21, Barrington

Alexander Michael Angelini of Barrington, R.I. passed away suddenly on Sept. 20, 2021. He was only 21. He spent nearly his entire life in Barrington after having moved here when he was 2.

As a child he loved to build and create. Alex had additional interests as he aged such as martial arts and song writing.

Tragically, he was afflicted from birth with a neurologic condition that caused anxiety and poor impulse control. Ultimately, he was swept up into self-medication. As he struggled throughout his adolescence to try to succeed, he was constantly dragged back into the option of feeling soothed by drugs of abuse. As is always the case, this resulted in many hardships and ultimately in his death.

Despite his intense internal suffering he was described by everyone who knew him as polite and kind with a wonderful smile. A sunset memorial at Barrington Beach was held on September 27 in his honor and was attended by friends and family of all ages.

He is survived and loved by his parents Michael and Dawn, his sisters Sofia and Graciana, who were endlessly supportive of him throughout his struggles, his loving dog Stella, along with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
