Patrick Alexander “Alek” Carroll, Born January 3, 1991, died the morning of December 29, 2023. Alek lived in Santa Barbara, California most of his life. His youth was full of adventures with his mother, family, and friends. He loved sports, including basketball, T-ball and soccer, but then he found Roller Hockey, and it became his favorite. Alek played on the local team for 8-9 years and spent a year with the traveling team. He also found ways to play with his neighbors, nearly every day in the middle of a quiet street. Alek also loved music. His favorite musician was Jimi Hendrix, he loved the sound of his guitar.

Alek became very involved with gaming and this became a huge part of his life. He had his first tournament in L.A, when he was 13 years old, Gears of War under the gamer tag “’fiberoptix’.” He did very well in the tournament, and on the 101 on the way home we saw a tag on the top of a bridge ’fiber owns CTF!’ (capture the flag) We circled around so we could see it again. He connected with two brothers in San Diego to form a team. He would take the train to San Diego to practice, and his team, traveled to five states for tournaments. They came in first a couple of times. He also loved playing Halo and World of Warcraft.

Alek attended local elementary schools and started homeschooling in the 7th grade obtaining his GED at 19. Alek had a huge appetite for information, and he surfed the internet studying every subject that caught his interest, which was basically everything. He found Alan Watts and Terence McKenna there, they became very influential teachers, he listened to their teaching for hours and hours. He would say there is so much information out there and he found it. He was very intelligent, creative, conscious, athletic, happy, and full of Love.

Alek is loved and missed by his mother Sharon Carroll, his aunts, uncles, cousins and his father John White.
