Elijah William O’Meara, age 10, of Simpsonville, SC, gained his angel wings on July 23rd, 2022 peacefully at home after battling brain cancer for the past seven months. Elijah was born in Cleveland, Ohio on February 10, 2012 and adopted by Jacquie and Billy soon after.
Elijah touched many lives and was loved deeply by those around him. He loved watching the Chicago Bears, playing flag football, Xbox, fishing, dancing and singing where he knew the song lyrics from rap to country and everything in between. He loved working side by side with you doing chores like laundry or spreading mulch and was always there to help.
Elijah is survived by his parents Jacqueline Uzl (Joseph) and William O’Meara (Erin), his siblings Alyssa, Liam, Karter and his grandparents John and Jayne Uzl and Arlene O’Meara, along with many aunts, uncles and cousins. Elijah was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Martin O’Meara.
A private Celebration of Life will be held.
Flowers and donations will be accepted in Elijah’s honor. Memorials may also be made to Camp Hands of Hope at: https://www.camphandsofhope.org/donate.html or Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation at: https://www.hpcfoundation.org/online.
