Leland Alexander Plew

Leland Alexander “Alex” Plew, 22, of Greenwood, passed away Sunday, July 13, 2014.

He was born July 27, 1991, in Indianapolis to David Robert Plew and Susan A. (Lindmair) Plew. He was a 2010 graduate of Center Grove High School, where he played soccer and lacrosse.

He attended Ivy Tech Community College, studying logistics. He was working for Buchanan Hauling and Rigging as a client logistics manager. He was a member of SS. Francis and Clare Catholic Church in Greenwood.

He was a selfless, kindhearted spirit and always willing to help. His smile would light up the room. He enjoyed all genres of music and liked to share newfound songs with friends. He was an amateur artist, who enjoyed painting, abstract art and sketching. He loved to golf and fish.
