Born: September 8, 2001 Elijah Lotolahi Kioa was a light that could not be dimmed. With his infectious smile and big heart all those that came into his life could not help but fall in love with those baby blue eyes. Elijah left an indescribable mark on the hearts of those who crossed paths with him. Elijah lived his life to the fullest. He believed that word was bond and his family his ultimate treasure.
Elijah’s magnetic personality was infectious. He was known for standing up for his beliefs and strong work ethic, making him a beloved friend to many. Anyone who knew Elijah knew of his love for life. His passion to bring laughter to everyone. Even if it meant a showcase of his goofy sense of humor or his horrible singing skills. Elijah enjoyed just laughing with family and his laughter could light up any room. Elijah lived life to the fullest, always living in the moment and taking things one day at a time. He also had a furry best friend named Leo, whom he adored.
He was always willing to lend a helping hand, and his strength and respectfulness were just a few qualities that made him special.
