Isaiah Tauataina

Posted By Jackie Andrews On April 17, 2018 @ 12:50 pm In Obituaries | 8 Comments

Isaiah Tauataina, son of Taufa and Iya Tauataina, was born in Martinez, CA on February 23, 2006. He was the oldest grandchild of both the Tauataina and Alcantara families.

He attended the 6th grade at Chaparral Elementary School in Phoenix, AZ. Isaiah was a beloved member of his group of friends there, the awesome Nerd Herd. Isaiah was heavily involved in his church, the Country Gables ward of the North Phoenix stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Some of Isaiah’s favorite things to do included shopping for and reading books, listening and singing along to music with his sisters, having family barbecues at the house, playing his ukulele, watching movies with his parents, writing stories to share, drawing pictures, taking silly photographs, having adventures or just chillin’ out with his many friends.

He was a member of Troop 624 of the Boy Scouts of America and had earned the following badges under the mentorship of his leaders and peers: rifle shooting, leatherwork, and first aid. Isaiah earned his 2nd class rank and was in progress of completing his family life and personal fitness merit badges.

Those who knew Isaiah understood that he was an endearing and sociable kid who could carry a conversation with anyone. He had a special talent for developing close-knit relationships with others through his natural charm, grace, and captivating smile. Isaiah had a deep sense of morals and would stand up for what he believed to be true and right. Part of his strong moral fiber was his love of service, as he found great joy in helping others in any way he could. He thoroughly enjoyed learning because of his innate curiosity for life’s wonders. Isaiah had a vivid imagination that entertained his family and a sense of humor that kept all he met laughing. But of the greatest significance, Isaiah was a protective, compassionate, doting, and selfless big brother to his two sisters who adore him completely.

Isaiah was a sweet boy in the process of becoming a valiant young man when God called him home on April 10, 2018. Of his immediate family, Isaiah is survived by his parents and his two younger sisters, Tilila and Tiya. However, Isaiah knew and loved so many others that he will be dearly missed by the countless people who consider him a son, grandson, nephew, friend, and more.

Visitation is from 4:00-8:00 PM Friday April 20, 2018 at Hansen Chapel, 8314 N. 7th Street, Phoenix 85020. Funeral service will be at 10:00 AM Saturday April 21, 2018 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 15018 N. 39th Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85053.

We were out of town, visiting our son, Todd, and his family, when were heard about Isaiah’s death. We were extremely shocked and deeply saddened to hear the news. My heart aches for your loss of a fine son and brother. I first got to know Isaiah when he was attending Ironwood Elementary School. I was substituting in a classroom. He walked up to me and said, “I think I know you. I think you go to my church.” I took a second look at him and said, “Yes, I think I recognize you too.” That was the beginning of our friendship. I substituted several more times in his classroom that year. If I was at school and he’d see me, he’d ask me if he would see at church that Sunday. If I was at church, he’d ask me if I would be substituting at Ironwood that week and maybe he’d get to see me at school. I’d tell him to look for me on Sunday because I usually had a small snack for him and his sisters. He usually had a big grin and happy smile when I would see him. He was always friendly and asked if I needed help. He seemed to be really happy to help me at school and encouraged the other students to listen to me and follow my directions. He participated in anything I asked him to do at school. I admired how he looked out for his sisters. He had a kind heart and a willingness to serve others. I will greatly miss his friendly hugs and greetings. I hope you will find peace and that the Holy Ghost will be a comfort to you and to all those that loved Isaiah. He will be missed!!!

Mrs. Taufa, I met you when you called Amazon. My love and prayers are with you and your family. Isaiah is a darling boy and will look over you with blessings forever. I will add you and your family to my daily prayers and will remember your kind words to me. I know that The Lord will watch over you and protect you.
