Ezekiel was born to parents Noemi and Zachary Urias. He went to school at Lamar Early Education Center. He was known by all as giggly, energetic and most of all he was know for his big loving smile that illuminated the whole room. He loved to splash in water, spin in circles and even though it wasn’t as clean as mom would prefer, he loved playing in the dirt until he was almost covered in it. 

He was intelligent, curious, silly, and caring with anyone he came into contact with. He was an amazing great grandson, grandchild, brother, nephew and cousin. When he wasn’t spinning in circles or hopping, he would be found under a blanket watching movie intros or credits. He loved getting into mischief especially when Noemi and Zachary were least expecting it. 

His favorite things to eat were bananas and fruit snacks, he was known for grabbing you by the hand and leading you to what he wanted. His favorite show was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and he loved to watch/listen to the Toy Story movies in various languages or sped up. Ezekiel was a bright light and was destined to be a huge personality, even though his time on earth was cut tragically short. 

Ezekiel is survived by his loving parents Noemi and Zachary Urias, his big brother Zachary and his twin sister, Evianna,  grandparents Beatriz and José Salazar, Cynthia and Tomas Urias Sr, Great grandparents Aurelia Salazar, Ignacio Jasso, & Esperanza N. Rodriguez 

Ezekiel is proceeded in death by his great grandpa, George Rodriguez Sr., his great grandma, Maria P. Reinhart and his great grandma, Guadalupe Balderas Gamez.

Pallbearers will be Edgar Balderas, Christopher A. Urias, Nicholas R. Urias and Sammy Rodriguez.
