Grayhall, Darius Hedeon Connor

Darius Hedeon Connor Grayhall put up a terrific fight against aplastic anemia/MDS before succumbing to sepsis and pneumonia on August 11, 2017 at Lovelace Hospital in Albuquerque. He was diagnosed at the age of 15 and, despite multiple setbacks and failures to get needed treatment, he always remained positive and determined to keep going. He attended college in pursuit of the digital arts, which he shared much of on Deviant Art. In the future, he was hoping to study genetics.

He loved animals, foxes most of all, and enjoyed reading, gaming and watching anime. He hoped to travel to Japan, someday. He was a big fan of role-playing and was part of a few communities online. There, he made many close friends with whom he shared mutual support through life's hard times.

He will be sorely missed by all those who knew him.

He is survived by his brother, Orenda Grayhall, his half-siblings, Tesla and Jared Gray, his mother, Kimberly S Hall, and his grandfather, Douglas Hall.

For those who believe it's possible, he promises to be back. Keep your eyes open for his unique self.
