Alexander A. Beiro, Jr. passed away unexpectedly of an apparent heart attack, November 19, 2022, at his home in Alexandria, Virginia.
The oldest son of nine children, Alex was born in 1958 in Pittsburgh to parents Alex and Jean (both deceased). He attended Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria and went on to receive his Bachelor of Science from Old Dominion University. Alex was an entrepreneur and had careers in construction management, real estate, wireless/telecommunications and most recently served as the President of the Virginia Wireless Association.
Alex was also an athlete, outdoorsman and adventurer and was most proud of his two sons, Alexander and Zachary, who he took skiing, mountain biking, shooting, visiting historical sites and museums and traveling throughout the United States. On his most recent treks, he drove his Prius almost 10,000 miles cross-country and to Canada.
Alex was an avid tennis player, bowler, photographer and golfer and won numerous awards. If he wasn’t winning on the court recently, he was patiently instructing friends and family.
Survivors include his two sons, eight siblings, 11 nieces and nephews, four great-nieces/nephews, aunts and numerous loving friends. There will be a Mass at St. Rita Catholic Church on Russell Road in Alexandria on Friday, December 2, at 10:30am, followed by a celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alexandria Little League, on whose team Alex played as a child and which the Beiro family has supported for over 40 years.
