Principal Dr. Bridgette Kaiser described Za’Nobio as a “one of a kind” kid who made a lasting impression of everyone he met.

“He had such spunk and was wicked smart,” Kaiser said, “Z was beautiful to say the least. He had so many talents and he will be greatly missed by many.”

The funeral will be held on Friday, July 26, at The Call Out Church of Almighty God on River Road South in Elyria.

The wake is scheduled from 10-11 a.m., with the funeral to be held immediately following.

Attendees are asked to wear blue, Za’Nobio’s favorite color.
