On December 13th we lost our brother, son, nephew, uncle, grandson, cousin, friend and so much more to a tragic car/mini bike accident. Esquire, who was only 15 years old was the most loving, funny, had a beautiful soul, and meant the world to us! He was very influential to those whom he crossed paths with.
Another person was taken to a hospital for treatment of an unspecified injury. The circumstances of the crash were under investigation.
The family has created a GoFundMe account to assist with preparing for his homegoing celebration.
