As the oldest of four siblings, Izeyah enjoyed helping his mom take care of his little brothers and sisters. He also loved attending church, going to school, playing basketball and football, participating in Cub Scouts, telling silly jokes, listening to hip-hop and showing off his dance skills and collecting pressed coins, Disney trading pins, and more.
After seeing the Lion King at Disneyworld, Izeyah adopted the motto, 'Hakuna Matata,' meaning, 'no worries for the rest of your days...' and that is exactly how he lived each and every day. He was a friend to everyone that he came into contact with and he constantly went out of his way to make people smile. His kind and gentle charisma, as well as his selfless spirit touched thousands of lives and he will be dearly missed.
