Elyejah was born January 4, 2010 in Vancouver, Washington to Brian Hauff and Phillesha Aaron Jane Bradford. After 16.5 hours of labor at 6:41 P.M., this gentle soul, and only son came into this world. He was the youngest and was affectionately called “Bubba” by his close friends and family.
Elyejah attended Holcomb Elementary school, and enjoyed playing football and soccer. He was in the 4th grade until his sudden departure on December 10, 2019 at 10:35 p.m.
Elyejah could be found most days playing video games (Fort Night), and reading comic books. His favorite color was blue, all 23 shades, from baby blue to navy. Elyejah loved the outdoors which included going to the beach, camping, fishing, crabbing, and astrology. One of his greatest thrills was saving a worm from an angry group of ants during the family annual
Elyejah accepted Christ into his life, and attended Grand View Baptist Church. Through the bus ministry, he and his sisters, Brianna and Arianna would attend Children’s Church on Sundays. He was loved by his Sunday school and Children’s Church Teachers. John Toral, Sunday School Teacher says, “He was a kind hearted boy that was a joy to have in my class. He did a great job sitting intently and listening to the lesson.”
