Alex Christopher Carney , Age: 15
April 05, 2002 -- February 14, 2018

Alex Christopher Carney, 15, of Prairie Village, KS, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.  Visitation will be from 6-7:00 PM Tuesday, February 20th at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 10100 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, KS with Memorial Services following.  In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial contributions to Nall Avenue Baptist Church Benevolence Fund.  

Alex was born April 5, 2002, to Chris and Beth (Bumgartner) Carney.  He attended Shawnee Mission East, where he played football.  Alex was a member of Nall Avenue Baptist church and enjoyed helping with the Upward Sports Program.  He was preceded in death by his grandmother Sharon Marsee and his cousin Chad Coen.  Alex is survived by his parents, his big sister Cadey Carney, maternal grandparents Phil and Judy Bumgartner, aunts and uncles: Matt (Connie) Carney, Betsy (Jeff) Hoffman, Ann (Tom) Gauthier, Clayt Carney, Eric (Tammy), Carney, Christie (Kevin Jordan) Coen, Amy (Zach) Liberman, cousins: Seth, Eliza, Evan, Faith, Isabella, Caroline C., Olivia, Ethan, Jessica, Chris, Jacob, and Caroline L. and extended family.

Despite receiving excellent medical care and the fact that Alex was a strong, strong kid, the severe extent of his injuries was too much. During his lifetime, Alex gave so much to others. Now he is giving the gift of life through organ donation. Our family is very grateful for everyone's continued prayers and thoughtfulness. We would like to thank the Prairie Village Police Department, Johnson County Fire and Med- Act, and all the local residents and passers-by who came to help. We would also like to thank the Saint Luke's Hospital trauma team neurosurgeons and all of the Neuroscience staff for the care of Alex.

Deepest sympathy for family. Death was not part of God's original purpose for us. We all look forward to the promise at 1 Corinthians 15:26 - "the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." Death is an enemy that separates us from our loved ones. When this promise is fulfilled, we will have the joy of our loved ones being resurrected to enjoy life the way our Grand Creator purposed for us…forever on earth. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9, 11)
