OBITUARY

Leilani Barbara Cocca

October 17, 2006September 19, 2019

Leilani Barbara Cocca “ little coconut” was born October 17, 2006 and sadly left us on September 19, 2019. She impacted the lives of many in such a brief period of time with an “old Soul” and a maturity way beyond her years.

Leilani was a highly competitive bundle of energy that excelled at everything she set her sights on. Affectionately referred to as an “over-achiever”, she was deservingly recognized and awarded for her excellence in school studies, leadership, Ju-jitsu, volunteerism and playing her clarinet.

Leilani possessed an unmeasurable love for animals and their care. She was extremely passionate about volunteering (every day if she could) with assisting the professional animal care givers in rehabilitating domestic animals and releasing them back into the wild. Leilani was particularly fond of opossums and squirrels and it is very possible that the next one you see may very well be one or related to one of the many that she nurtured and saved.

Leilani was a scorching, bright “red hot” comet who’s all too brief but brilliant light has burned a permanent mark on the souls of us fortunate enough to have seen her. She will be forever in our hearts and longed for until we see her again.

She is survived by her mother Denise Johnson, brother Robert (Bobby) Kai Cocca, uncle Robert (Bobby) Johnson, aunt Grace and cousin Christine Johnson; father Robert Cocca and paternal grandparents Robert and Bunny Cocca. Leilani is predeceased by her maternal grandparents Robert and Barbara Johnson.

Me and leilani used to joke around so much , for the 5th grade safety patrol trip we got to be in the same room, and we all stayed up till 3 a.m. just playing hide in seek or truth or dare and we dared her to sleep in the shower , surprisingly she did it , then in band we had the same shoes , converse , and we would sit by each other every day untill we had to go to our instrument groups but we used to draw on eachothers pants. We all love you leilani, we miss you ,and i will text you every day
LONG LIVE LEILANI

Leilani was always there
She always had your back and you could tell her any thing, she kept your secrets and was so trust worthy.
She was caring, loving
-exactly for animals -, and so much more.
I would do anything for her to come back but she is safe and in a better place here with us or not she can’t be hurt.
I remember all the times in the morning were I would go to her and tel her everything that happened the night before and give her a hug and right before we went to class or left we would always say I love you to eachother and that’s the last words you said to me and I to you.
I couldn’t have wished for better ones to say☺️😊😔💞❤️🦕
Goodnight my sweet angel r.i.p. you will be I our hearts forever❤️❤️
