Titus Ray Alexander was born on October 20, 1950, in Austin, Texas, to Mr. Johnny Lee Alexander and Mrs. Gertie Darby Alexander; both of whom preceded him in death. To this union was born five children, Johnnie Lorene, Myrtle, Angie, Titus Ray and Allen Ricky.
Titus grew up in Austin, Texas, and received his formal education through the Austin Independent School District and graduated from Albert Sydney Johnston High School. All his siblings had the same testimony that their brother, Titus, loved cracking jokes and playing a good game of basketball in the neighborhood.
In the early 70s, Titus was a Tutor Counselor for Upward Bound at Huston Tillotson College, this program was designed to encourage young high school students to pursue their education. He also was an employee of Travis State School for many years serving in several positions from Group House Supervisor for young men, and as a Transport Driver. He retired from the Travis State School in March of 1993.
Titus became weary with the fast life he was living. He loved and adored his sister Myrtle, she was a very special sister who was always there for him through his good times and his bad times. She was a great encouragement to him. He soon became tired of the life he was living; he was ready for a great change in his lifestyle. God heard his prayers – his sisters, Angie and Johnnie had lived a good Christian life before him. They often gave him their testimony of how Christ had changed their lives and blessed them with peace. They invited him to a worship service, and after hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached by Pastor Eddie E. Willis, Sr., on April 14, 2004, Titus Ray Alexander accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He now had that Joy and Peace in his life!
Not long after accepting salvation, he was united in holy matrimony on July 31, 2004, to Carmen Ford Coffee, who had also accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. This holy matrimony between Brother Titus and Sister Carmen united their family with five wonderful children; three sons and two daughters; Titus “Sport” Alexander; Titus “Button” Ray Alexander, Jr.; Roland Daniel Coffee; Tymika White and Evelyn Coffee-Oyibotha. He was blessed with twelve grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Brother Titus treasured being a husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. They were married for seventeen years.
His New Covenant Church family looked forward to hearing him testify of how God watched over him while he lived a sinful life. Now the Lord has given him a wonderful wife and a new and happy life. Brother Titus was a member of the New Covenant Church Hope Choir, and was a guard during our choir rehearsals making sure everyone was safe inside the building, especially, his sisters-in-Christ. He was also a faithful volunteer for our fund-raising events at the University of Texas games for several years. He had a passion to assist in transporting sick members to their scheduled doctor’s appointments. Brother Titus was known for his heartfelt laugh, and a smile that was contagious, you just had to smile back. After becoming ill he attended church services as his illness permitted. Brother Titus was a man who had a great testimony of how God had changed his life, the worldly things he use to have no power over, he now had power to say no to them all.
Brother Titus Ray Alexander entered into eternal rest on November 29, 2021 at the age of 71. He will be best remembered as a man with a great testimony of God’s grace.
