Malachi enjoyed comedy shows and sitcoms, one of his favorites was the “Golden Girls.”

Malachi will be sadly missed by his parents; his grandparents, his siblings; David Martinez, Tyler Vides` Narvaez, Alexander Martinez, Andre Johnson and Charlie John, in addition to his extended family and friends.

Malachi: What can you say about a little boy with a big bright smile and an even bigger heart. At the youth center Malachi was loved, cared about and he was home a place where he could be himself. A place with no judgement where second chances were waiting around every corner. It was here where Malachi let loose and was able to be a kid not the to soon an adult he had to try and be. Always able to make us laugh and then smile during rough days. These will be the Malachi moments I remember. The stories and Bible study of who he was in Jesus and the purpose that was waiting for him to grab. As we remember Malachi please pray with me for the rest of our youth who may be struggling the way Malachi was and pray the strength for them to reach out and grasp true love in our Heavenly Father. Before he was a so called "hood baby " he was our Youth Center baby. Will always love you Malachi
