Sirrone, had a smile that would light up any room that he walked into. If you needed encouragement, words of wisdom or a good laugh you could count on Sirrone! He lifted spirits even when he was going through a hard time. Sirrone loved to dance, listen to old and new school music, beat you in chess, loved sports, and he stayed dipped in stylish outfits. He was the life of the party and he loved God! He could have easily received “father of the year award,” Mecca was his world. Sirrone received his high school diploma from Peninsula College in 2017, obtained a forklift certification and he had plans to attend Pierce College for Theater. He was very intellectual. Sirrone started a mentor program entitled “Made Men,” at Greenhill School in Chehalis, WA. He and his peers articulated the needs of young black men that encountered the justice system and provided solutions. He was always evolving and working to be the best version of himself. Through. It. All. Sirrone was the epitome of resilience and optimism. Sirrone will truly be missed. We love you Buddas. This is not goodbye… this
is see you later.
