Elijah was our little miracle baby and was truly a blessing from God to our family. He had a love and passion for baseball that started at the age of 5 and continued to his senior year in high school. Throughout the years Elijah learned Mechanics, paint and bodywork while working alongside his dad, after his senior year in high school Elijah made the decision to continue his education and studied with the Ford Asset Program with Odessa College which he had just Graduated from May 13, 2022. He received a certificate while working at Sewell Ford in Automotive Mechanics.

 Elijah was very Intelligent, responsible and an independent young man. Elijah did not fear anything, His main priority was his family; he always made time for them, whether it was joking around, but the most importantly he always wanted to make them smile and laugh. He will be missed by many.

He is preceded in death by his Brother, Adrian Barrera.

Elijah is survived by his parents, Adrian and Estella Barrera. Brother; Abraham (Erica) Barrera, Sisters; Katrina Barrera (Juan), Sabrina Barrera (Juan). Nieces and Nephews; Angel, Lexxis, Theresa, Izabelle, Alejandra, Jezrael Barrera. Angela, Juan (Gordo), Abriana, Aaron Hernandez. Aaliyah, Joziah, Noah Bueno. Also, by a host of Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.

The Barrera Family would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Sewell Ford and to everyone that has been by our side during this difficult time in our lives. We just ask for you to continue praying for us and being by our side.
