Tomasi Touliki Taufa Jr. aka Leka, our loving son, brother, uncle and grandson joined our Heavenly Father, early Tuesday morning, on the 18th of June, 2019 unexpectantly. Leka was born on the 28th of January, 1997 in Salt Lake City, Utah and he lived 22 years of an adventurous life.
Leka loved to travel, explore new places and try new things. He loved rugby and his dream as a child was to become the best rugby player in the world. He loved to listen to all types of music as music was his way of expressing himself. Leka was the best helper that anyone could ask for and he was never hesitant to help anyone that needed assistance. Leka was also an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends and telling stories and laughing. Leka was an avid video gamer but also loved being outdoors. He always wore a smile on his face and his smile was extremely contagious. One thing that we will miss the most about Leka, is the huge smile on his face.
As a young man's life has been cut short here on this earth far too soon, he will forever remain in the hearts of those nearest to him. Leka leaves behind his parents: Tomasi T. Taufa Sr. and Mele L. Taufa, and his siblings: Anaseini M. Taufa, Samuela T. Taufa, Maryan Taka, Uatesoni Taufa and Mafi F. Taufa. Leka also leaves behind his grandmother and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. Sweet, loving and caring memories of Leka will stay with us in our hearts forever. We love you Leka!
Funeral services will be held at 11:30am – 12:30pm on Saturday, 29th of June, 2019 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1100 SW 15th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312. There will be a viewing for family and friends, from 10:00am – 11:30am, prior to the service. Following the services, a motorcade will leave the church around 12:30pm, escorting Leka to his final resting place at Lauderdale Memorial Park, 2001 SW 4th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315.
