Ezra Nathanial Derhake, 3, spent his life smiling and bringing joy to everyone he met. He was born on January 20, 2017 in Hannibal, Mo and passed away September 25, 2020 in Quincy, Il. Ezra loved his parents, Theodore and Audreana Derhake as well as his siblings, Oliver, Claira, and Emmett. Together, their family loved exploring their piece of paradise on their family farm in Fowler, Il.
Ezra found joy in everything. He loved to dance and play in the dirt. He was especially fond of his dogs and the many animals around the farm. Wrestling with his siblings was always the highlight of his day. Ezra adored his Momma and there was nothing better than his Momma's "cookin."
Ezra was an early riser and could often be found wearing his fuzzy pajamas, muddy boots, or his personal favorite, nothing at all. His face was always covered in dirt, to which he was lovingly nicknamed Pigpen.
Ezra was deeply adored by his grandparents, Jerry & Twila Derhake and Shelly & Rick Evans. Countless Uncles, Aunts, and Cousins will forever treasure the love and light that Ezra brought into their lives; John & Diana Mast (Gwen, Penny, and Leo) Benjamin & Jessica Derhake (Evie Joy and Felix) Tyler & Bryn Peters (Cayson, Breckyn, Vaylea, Cyra, Lynus, Breya and Thayne) Jacob & Amy Peters (Maggie, Cooper, Elodie, and Jersey) Alex & Ashley Tutt (Estelle) Richie Evans and Riley Evans.
Ezra is rejoicing in heaven with his brother or sister and his Great Grandparents from the Derhake, Evans, Goodwin, Peters, and Sagrillo families.
