Obituary

Alex David Putnam, 25, passed away peacefully on May 8, 2017. He was born in Austin on October 8, 1991, to David and Tina Moore Putnam.

Devoted son, loving husband, beloved brother and loyal friend, Alex was known for his easygoing nature and his infectious smile. He attended Bridgepoint Elementary School and West Ridge Middle School, where he formed life-long friendships. At Westlake High School, he was a proud member of the Chaparral football team, and he cherished memories of playing in the UIL AAAAA State Championship game alongside his teammates and best friends.

After graduation, Alex attended Texas Christian University where he was co-captain of the rugby team. He graduated with a degree in Economics in May of 2015. While attending TCU, Alex met the love of his life and future wife, Madeleine Abbott. He and Madeleine were married in Houston, Texas, on May 4, 2017.

Alex enjoyed being outdoors with his friends and family, especially boating on Lake Austin. He loved traveling, photography, cooking--and eating!

Alex's family is forever grateful to the incredible team of doctors, nurses, and staff at MD Anderson Cancer Center and at St. David's South Austin Cancer Clinic. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Alex to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Post Office Box 4486, Houston, Texas, 77210-4486.

Alex is survived by his wife, Madeleine, his parents David and Tina Putnam, brothers, Kevin and Kyle Putnam, uncle and aunt John and Cathy Moore, aunts Melinda McAnear and Karen Lovelady Moore. Alex will be missed by many cousins and countless friends, all of whom comprised "Team Putty."
