Alex H. Coy II, 80, San Antonio, TX

Alex H. Coy II passed away on Monday, May 7, 2012, at 80 years of age. He was born on April 6, 1932, in San Antonio, Texas. At the age of 16 he enlisted in the US Marine Corps and served in the Korean War, earning among other medals, a Purple Heart. Alex Coy II is survived by his wife, Minnie Cavazos Coy (married 57 years), children: Alex H. Coy III, Yvonne Coy Riojas, DeeAnna Coy and John Coy; three sisters: Olivia Coy Morales, Stella Coy Walsh, and Odell Coy; grandchildren: Yvette Coy Salazar, Edward Coy Riojas, Alex H.
