Zachariah Hezekiah Wilson, age 8, passed away Sunday July 24, 2016 at his home in Elgin Illinois, surrounded by his loving family. He was born to the loving parents of Dorothea Hart and Herbert Wilson.
Zachariah’s life was not to be a simple one, but it was still filled with happiness and laughter. He enjoyed attending school at Liberty Elementary School, especially enjoyed being with family and hearing stories. Zachariah especially enjoyed hearing his name. he was often called “Sexy” and would strike a pose just like a super model. They gave him the name of Zachariah, because the Lord is my strength and Hezekiah meaning Famous.
Zachariah enjoyed the love and affection from his family and was his Mother’s baby for life. Zachariah enjoyed cuddling with my sisters and shared very special moments with each of them. Though his smile could light up any room, it was music that brought special life to him. And though he may have suffered aches and pains, you would never find him complaining.
Sometimes God picks a flower that’s still in full bloom. Sometimes the flower that is chosen, we feel He’s picked to soon. We’re at peace knowing; in God’s heavenly garden, He has placed the ones we treasure. You have changed our lives forever.
Zachariah is preceded in death by his Grandfather, Herbert Wilson Sr., Great Aunt Stella Fuzzi Williams and Aunt Karen Michelle Hart.
