Zeke Dies Tragically. Help with Funeral & Burial.

Ezekiel (Zeke) El-Amin was a 19-year-old vibrant and adventurous young man, whose life ended in a boating accident Saturday, June 26, 2021. Zeke was a fun, loving, inviting person, who made those around him feel at home. His heart was huge, and his love was felt by those surrounding him. His smile would brighten up any room he walked into and Zeke would befriend any and everyone without hesitation. Ezekiel was a 2020 graduate of Everett High School where he made many lasting friendships. He was an inspiring rapper known as “Zeuchia The Great, Peace and Love.” He is missed tremendously by his family and friends.

Due to this very unexpected loss, the parents of Zeke are asking for help toward funeral and burial costs.  Any funds received in excess of these costs will go towards counseling for Zeke’s parents and two brothers who remain devastated by his untimely and tragic death.  With counseling and the support of family, friends, and so many others, we plan to dedicate our lives to carrying on Zeke’s legacy of Peace and Love.  Our family is eternally grateful for the donations, the outpouring of love, the words of comfort, and the wonderful prayers during this most difficult time.

Thanks to all of your generous donations, we were able to give our beloved Ezekiel “Zeke” El-Amin the most beautiful homegoing celebration and burial on July 10, 2021.  From the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful to you all.  Now, the hard but necessary work of healing begins for we know that Ezekiel is resting in God’s loving arms.  In time, we will move forward in faith, courage and strength to keep Ezekiel’s legacy of Peace & Love alive.  For those who are still wishing to donate, we will keep the GoFundMe active for just a few weeks before we close out what has been a source of tremendous help to us during this difficult time.  On behalf of our entire family, we extend our most gracious thanks. 
Love,
