On May 6, 2011, William and Nekila Clark gave birth to Nyzaiah. His birth was such a joy to his parents. He was the first child born to their union. Upon his arrival, he had two big brothers, Jaden and Nathan, who guarded him and taught him life lessons. His older sister, Amber, took take care of him as if she was his mother. He felt spoil.
He attended River City Science Academy - Mandarin Campus where he developed a keen interest in reading. Nyzaiah loved to read and eagerly took books from his school library to read each week. His favorite series were Dogman and Captain Underpants. He enjoyed spending time with his friends and when he was at home, he loved going on the computer to play Roblox. He was the first to be at the dining table and his favorite meal was macaroni and cheese. What he really loved was the cheese. He loved hanging out with his sister, Narriah, and he was her protector. He would make sure she was comfortable each night and would often sleep in her bed.
Nyzaiah was a loving and affectionate child. He would make sure he hugged his grandmother, parents, and siblings every day and let them know he loved them. He loved doing activities with his family and eagerly look forward to weekends and evening family times.
His favorite color was green and he wore it often. On his trip to the Virgin Islands last summer, he enjoyed hanging out in the warm weather doing outdoor activities. He loved everything and anything outdoors. He hated to be bored and would remind the family that vacations should be spend doing fun things all day. And if you let him, Nyzaiah would not sleep if he could play and be involved with fun activities. To that end, it is not surprising that he played soccer and flag football. Unlike his siblings, Nyzaiah was the neat one in the family. He kept his room neat and surrounded it with his favorite items and books.
Nyzaiah looked forward to getting good Class Dojo comments. Good comments meant getting a treat at home and an opportunity to earn good behavior points at school. And he received a lot of Dojo! In fact, he earned enough to get him treats and trips to Zaxby restaurant and amusement parks. In school, everyone knew and loved him. It was easy to love Nyzaiah. He was adorable. He gave his life to Christ on
Nyzaiah left us on Saturday, October 13th at the young age of seven. His parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends will miss this awesome boy who promised to be an even awesome adult.
May his soul rest in peace.
Nyzaiah leaves to cherish his memories
