Elias was always so kind and had such a positive attitude. I enjoyed having him in my Zoology class and I have nothing but good memories of him. I saw him a couple of times at Dillons recently and it was great to see his bright smile. I am deeply saddened by this loss but happy with the wonderful memories I have of him. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Elias.

You were always such a bright spot in my classroom, even when you were quiet, as you were always smiling, never had an unkind word to say about others, and worked diligently- always with a positive attitude. I will always cherish the blessing I had in being your teacher at Stucky. We will all miss you so very, very much- forever.

Elias was such a sweet young man and great friend to his classmate and my son Caylen as well as others. I so enjoyed him this last year, especially during wrestling season. Cheering on him, my son and all my other wrestling sons at every match. I am so glad my son got to meet you. My deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to his parents, family and friends. May God comfort you all. He will truly be missed. Tandra and Caylen Lowery #heights2020 #falcons
