Irauna’j Arama’t Brown, 10 of Roanoke passed from this life into eternal life on Thursday December 17, 2020.
Irauna’j was born July 7, 2010. His sparking gray eyes and contagious smile would light up any room and touched the heart of all those he encountered. He was a loving, compassionate, energetic, outgoing, unique, brave, fearless and strong willed child. His determination to keep trying until he got it right was a trait that was admirable by many. His affectionate spirit and big heart were often captured best in the presence of his family or while playing with his siblings. Like most children Irauna’j loved the spotlight and his passion for performing often engaged others in his YouTube video creations. His uniqueness shined through when he added mustard to his eggs, but he was an avid lover of chicken wings and hot sauce. Irauna’j had a love for sports and he enjoyed playing and watching football, basketball, and wrestling. He also enjoyed building forts, watching movies, Pokemon, crab legs, Takis, challenging his personal record for the most push-ups, perfecting his game of chess and being a super fan of John Cena. His larger than life personality will leave an imprint for his loved ones to cherish.
Surviving to cherish his memory are his parents, mother Januari Brown and father Jerome Clark & Heather Wilson. Grandparents Angela and Luis Guerrero, Richard and Elizabeth Jones,Jerome Pitts, Sabrina Sullivan, Arthur Brown. Siblings Carl (CJ)Barnett, Karay Wilson, Jaesean Clark, Jaraji Clark, Quiane Clark, Annaliese Clark, and Envii Brown.
