Mr. Diaje Fachaun Reeves, 11, passed away at 2:50 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11, 2017, at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was born in Kokomo, to Rodney Reeves and Shelia Williams on June 7, 2006.
Diaje was full of life; he had a loving soul and big heart and would do anything for anyone he came in contact with. He had a love for sports and music, and loved to dance, and hang out with his many cousins. Diaje's years may have been brief on this earth, but every single one was filled with so much joy and love that he lived more in his short life than most do in a full lifetime. Friends and family always surrounded him, and his teachers loved and adored him. Although he is gone from this earth, his life will continue to live on.
Diaje is survived by five siblings, Ava and Rodney Reeves, Kokomo, Zayden, A'raja and Aubrielle Reeves, Marion; maternal grandparents, Robert and Darlene Wilson, Kokomo; paternal grandparents, Carrie King and Kim Reeves, Marion; aunts and uncles, Shylene Reese, Georgia, Leroy Brooks, Hawaii, Angelo Williams, Fort Wayne, Jaquan (Angela) Reeves, Jamelle Reeves, and Kimberly (Larry) Cox, all from Marion, Jovon Freshwater, Minnesota, Chandra Reeves, Kentucky, and Damien Reeves, California; and a countless amount of cousins and extended family.
Diaje was preceded in death by his brother, Zavion Reeves; paternal great-grandmother, Jewelene Prince; paternal great-grandfather, John Macon; and his maternal grandfather, Leroy Williams.
Funeral services for Diaje will be Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, at 11 a.m. at Mount Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church, 1599 E. Sycamore St., Kokomo, with the Rev. L.E. Anderson Jr. officiating and Pastor Tony Manis delivering the eulogy.
