This Memorial weekend we lost our sweet and loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, Kyrrus Kaleo Pono O Ka Ohana Ali’i Ozuna.
Kyrrus was born at Timpanogos Hospital in Orem Utah to the parents of Benjamin Jimenez and Rachel Ozuna on September 30, 2004. Ky spent the majority of his childhood growing up in Utah county before moving East and spending the last few years with his Mom and Dad in Virginia.
Ky was a natural athlete, excelling in any pair of shoes he put on those amazing feet; Football, basketball, and track. Ky’s passion was football. His energy, work ethic, and love for the game were obvious and Ky stood head and shoulders above most kids his age. Kyrrus played football for the American Fork Cavemen for many years, and whether he was ripping off 50 yard touchdowns or getting crushed for a 5 yard loss, he was rooting his teammates on and smiling through it all. KY has always a natural leader, in competition and in life. Ky led the teams he was on to many victories, and bigger than that, Ky led the people he was around with his heart. Quick to help someone up, physically and emotionally, Ky was the quiet storm. The Thornburg Middle school Jaguars were lucky to have Ky for the last couple of years, shredding the football field and burning up the track.
Kyrrus was always the sweetest kid. So happy and energetic, his smile lit up any room he walked into. Ky was an absolute joy to be around, very thoughtful of others and always willing to help where needed; volunteering to help with physical work and quietly lifting up those around him that needed a smile and encouraging word.. Ky will always be remembered for his enormous heart and infectious smile. We will all miss him so much and continue to honor his legacy with respect and love.
Kyrrus was joined in death by his Mother, Rachel Ozuna, and her partner, Michael Coleman, and is preceded in death by his Grandfather Alan Jimenez. He is survived by his grandmother’s Irene, and Sue, and his grandfather, Richard. Kyrrus’s Father Benjamin Jimenez and second Mother Randi Jimenez. Kyrrus’s cherished brothers, Elijah,Colby, Caden, Geral, and sister, Isabel. A cherished number of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who Kyrrus loved and laughed with. We will all miss and mourn our loss of his physical presence forever and celebrate his life always.
