With broken hearts we announce Keoni Reamus Wilson’s unexpected passing on May 18, 2021. He was diagnosed with heart burn and five days later Keoni lost his precious life to severe complications resulting from acute pancreatitis, which is extremely rare for children. His ambitious dreams were cut short at the age of 17, one month before he was going to graduate with endless possibilities of a promising future.
Keoni was born on August 1, 2003. He was gifted with an enormous smile and the biggest heart. When he was a toddler his quest for knowledge was unmatched. Even as he grew, he was able to spark and uphold an intelligent conversation with almost anyone. When he was 6 years old in grade 1, Keoni was privately tested academically and his results were off the charts.
They did mention that he had developed a higher vocabulary than most adults. His loving, passionate and caring character led us to believe he was an old soul. As a teen, Keoni grew into his ‘biggest smile in the room,’ coupled with the most infectious laugh that you could ever hear. Each of his hugs was an abundance of love that would always be followed by joy, laughter and happiness. In his 17 years of life, you can easily see how Keoni became a best friend to many and loved by everyone who gave him a chance.
He was beautifully natured, caring, passionate, well-mannered with a loyal soul. He had an amazing sense of humour and was the best conversationalist one could wish for. Keoni excelled with art on a profound level. He had an immense gift. He impressed anybody with his drawings and sketches. Any medium – he would master it. He loved his music. Countless times, he would go for drives with his Mum, share playlists and have the longest talks. If you were lucky enough, late at night, you could hear Keoni singing to his favourite ballads. He had the voice of an angel. He was a Gentle Giant with such a sensitive heart and soul. He would’ve been an amazing husband and father in his future. Anything that Keoni put his mind to, he would’ve excelled at in his future.
He will be profoundly missed by his parents Reamus and Lisa; siblings Leilani and Tyler; grandparents Marjorie, Randy, Nana Sandra and Gordon; great-grandmother Louise; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
