Alex Ho

Welcome to Alex’s memorial, where we honor & remember our husband, father, grandpa, brother, & friend. Spending his childhood in Hong Kong before building his legacy in Fresno, Alex is forever missed by family & friends around the world.


lexander Gar Yin Ho was born on October 12, 1952, in Guangdong, China, and was raised in Hong Kong. He enjoyed his youth at Pui Ching School before immigrating to Fresno, where he met Josephine, his loving wife of 35 years with whom he fathered two sons, Anthony and Aaron. He worked in electrical engineering and founded 2H Engineering Corporation. In his spare time, he served as a volunteer police officer with the Fresno Police Department. He enjoyed fishing and hunting, both of which translated well into his joy of cooking as he earned a reputation as the master of midnight snacks. He was also a lively tourist who enjoyed traveling the globe with his family and friends.

Alex had an energetic spirit, unique sense of humor, and was truly young at heart. He will forever be remembered as an extraordinary business man, loyal friend, loving husband, and devoted father. Alex passed away on Saturday, August 8th, 2009, and he is survived by his wife, Josephine; sons, Anthony and Aaron; sister, Florence Gong; and brothers, Jack and Frankie.

Patricia and I are very sorry for the Ho family loss. Alex is amongst the few die hard KongSe/ Puiching friends to stick out with me, to friendship and to progress in our common interest.

We certainly enjoy the fond memories of our trip to Fresno in May of 2005 to catch up with Alex, and his wife, Josephine over the dinner table and in August, 2008, we sailed together on the fabulous Baltic Sea Cruise with the Ho family to St. Peters-burg, Russia.

I know for certain, without a doubt, Alex is in a much better place, where he can eternally be joyous, to continue the work he loves in his temporal earthly passage, and to care for his family with greater vision and ability.

In his honor, and in his memory, he said the following:

May God continue to bless the Ho family and for the generations to come.
With deep Condolences,

We took many trips and had gatherings with Alex. It is sad that he won't join us for the time being. My condolence to Josephine, Anthony, and Aaron. I hope that the thought of reunion in the future will ease the pain currently feel. He began his journey earlier than us. We will join him soon or later in a better place. He will be kept in the heart of all of us who love him dearly.

Our condolence to the Ho's family. We know Alex valued the friendship a lot, glad to be one of his 71 Kong Se classmate. May God give you peace and comfort in this sad time. We will also miss him.

Alex was a good friend of mine and I will always remember him as the great person that he was. He was a giving man forged with honesty, will, and a good sence of humor. My prayers are for him and his family.
