Growing up in Springfield, Alexis graduated from Central High school and later went on to obtain his certificate as a self-employed contractor. He enjoyed being a member of the South End Adult Basketball League and the Hubbard Basketball League of Indian Orchard. Alexis was outgoing with a sense of humor that could light up a room. He was an avid sports fan, and especially enjoyed the Philadelphia Eagles and his favorite basketball athlete, Carmelo Anthony.
