Reece Daniel Elseroad, 4, of Cumming, died on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014. Born in Hilton Head, S.C., he was the son of Heidi and Daniel Elseroad of Cumming.
Reece (AKA, Reecie-Piecie) loved life. He adored his older brother, Jackson, and younger brother, Luke. Reece noticed his little sister, Linny. If you ever caught Reece being still, he was sleeping. He spent his time praying for chocolate milk, playing ball, running outside and causing all kinds of mischief with his hooligan brothers. This little guy was also extremely patriotic. Reece was a friend of Jesus and believed that Jesus "got out of the grave for him." His life was a confirmation of his baptism verse, Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Reece is greatly missed by so many, but none more than his faithful daddy and mommy.
In addition to his loving parents, Reece is survived by his brothers, Jackson and Luke Elseroad of Cumming; sister, Lindyn Elseroad of Cumming; grandparents, Linda Schneider of Ft. Wayne, Ind., and Kevin and Bonnie Elseroad of Alpharetta; aunts and uncles, Matthew and Holly Terry of Celebration, Fla., Bethany and Jerome Smith of Suwanee, and Erin and Andy Ellenwood of Fishers, Ind.
Funeral Services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014, at First Baptist Church in Cumming. Interment will follow at Sawnee View Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Reece's memory to the Vacation Bible School of Living Faith Lutheran Church, 103 Buford Dam Road, Cumming, GA 30040.
