Malik Ja'Que Wills

May 31, 1994 ~ April 24, 2018 (age 23)

"How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh, outweighed the bad.
I thought we'd get to see forever, but forever has blown away.
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

I don't know where this road is gonna lead to.
All I know is where we've been and what we've been through.
If it gets me to tomorrow, I hope it's worth all the pain.
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories to be my sunshine after the rain.
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday."

​Our beloved, Malik Ja'Que Wills, age 23 of Elizabeth City, NC, transitioned from this life unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. 

His life will be celebrated on ​Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at the Grace and Truth Community Church, Elizabeth City, NC with the Pastor Keith L. Smith, officiating. A wake will be held on Friday for his loving friends and community from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the church. The family will receive friends at the home of Javis and Antionette Gibbs, 568 Crocker Hill Road, Elizabeth City, NC.

He leaves to cherish his memories: one daughter, Jordan Vann-Wills; parents, Angela and Kelvin Thornton; two sisters, Deja Thornton and Jordan Thornton; one brother, Keem Thornton; maternal grandparents, Dorothy Moore (Pastor Kenny), Roy Wills (Loretta) and Alphonso Downing (Marietta); paternal grandparents, Ross Thorton, Sr. (Mary) and Hattie Bouey; great-grandmother, Evelyn Thornton; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.
