Alexander George Ferraris “Alex” lost his long, hard-fought battle with mental illness and substance abuse on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 at the age of 31.
A lifelong resident of South Plainfield, Alexander graduated from South Plainfield High School in 2004 and worked in the commercial glass industry.
Growing up, Alexander was very athletic and participated in soccer, baseball, basketball and football. He enjoyed watching football and UFC.

He is survived by his parents, Jorge Ferraris and Daniella Ferraris (née Tomicic) of South Plainfield; brother Eric Ferraris of Middlesex; and maternal grandmother, Erna Tomicic; two uncles, Bernard Tomicic and Peter Tomicic Jr.; and cousin Christopher Tomicic.
