Izaiah Sayler was a very loving, caring, free spirited kid and these things made him a great son, grandchild, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. Izaiah was always there for people, whether it be help with a project, or if you needed him to listen or just needed a hug, a smile, or a laugh … he wouldn’t let you down. Izaiah started kindergarten at Indian Trails Elementary. Once there, it didn’t take long to figure out that he enjoyed being a clown and would do anything to get a laugh. Izaiah began playing football for Pop Warner, and wrestling for the Mat Club. Here he met coaches Quincy Tillman, Bobby Recess, Bo Cash, Anthony Ward, Eric Moore and Brian … under their coaching, he helped win many football games, a few championships, and was a 3 time state qualifier. He gained life long friends from these programs.
Izaiah moved to Oak Grove his freshman year to reside with his grandparents. Here he would meet his two best friends, Skyelar Kelly and Haden Chrisco. They spent as much time together as possible, having fun and laughs, and learning the trials of being teenagers and life, real friends, and relationships of all kinds.
Izaiah enjoyed fishing, camping, canoeing and all night fires. Whether it be fishing and camping with Grandparents Randy and Julie Salyer or canoeing and camping with “Dad”, Duane and Kristen, and the entire group, where he was so much fun and such an asset to have around.
What Izaiah will be remembered the most for is how good of a brother he was to Samantha and Skyler, and his bonus siblings, Alex and Austen. Not only was he a brother but he was a friend and protector to his sisters. He would always put them first and always had their their best interest in mind. Izaiah had many cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends. He was lucky enough to have his own, and all the extras that came with the bonus family. He loved everyone, most with all he had, and will be greatly missed and is so loved by so many!
A Celebration of Izaiah’s life will be held Saturday, May 1, 2021 at Lake Jacomo Shelter House #9 from 1 to 6 p.m.
