Elijah Threesuns Obituary

Elijah Henry Three Suns (December 30, 1995 - December 1, 2023)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dearest son, nephew, uncle, grandson & friend, Elijah Henry Three Suns. Elijah has gone home at the age of 27 years old on December 1, 2023. 

Elijah was born in Strathmore, Alberta on December 30th,1995. From the day Elijah was born he was a very unique individual who had an exquisite character, Elijah made friends with whomever he encountered & had always left a memorable imprint. He was known for his humour, his fearlessness, his feisty ways, his outspoken nature as well as his affectionate devotion to his friends and family especially towards his mother Alana, cherished nieces Caidence & Autumn, and grandparents, Allan & Josie. As small as Elijah was, he was a huge asset with the grandparents. He took on the care of the grandparents after his brother Vaughn had passed on, never was there a moment that had passed where Elijah didn’t bring up a fond memory of Vaughn. Elijah missed his brother immensely & truly had a broken heart without him. Elijah kept his memory going by reminding others of Vaughn’s kind gestures & meaningful words. Alana instilled so much love and affection into her two boys that everyone who encountered the two felt wholesome. Elijah was always down for an adventure, he had a free spirit & had tremendous love for everyone, he loved music and has left us his legacy of love. 

We will miss hearing his famous sayings, “FML”, “Well obvi" & "I keep my ears to the ground & my eyes in the sky"and “Oh Lord, Praise Jesus”. 

In September 2018 Elijah graduated from Old Sun College having his brother Von Running Rabbit by his side. Furthermore, Elijah was very knowledgeable & efficient with all types of technologies. He was the go-to guy with all the smarts for anything IT related. After Elijah completed high school, he went on to graduate with an IT Tech Certificate with Blackfoot Tech Council IT.

Elijah leaves behind his two loving mothers, Alana Running Rabbit & April (Manuel) Running Rabbit; Dad Lyle Poor Eagle who always lovingly called him “My boy”; biological Dad Delford Three Suns; special aunts, Kennedy (Mick) Running Rabbit & Francine Brass; special sisters, Janine & Crystal Running Rabbit; brothers Stanley (Felicia) Axe, Henessey, Farence & Nicholas Three Suns; precious nieces Caidence Weasel Head, Autumn Breaker, Eska & Astrid Axe; Grandparents Allan & Josie Running Rabbit who affectionately called him BOO; Uncle Horton (Cecile) Running Rabbit; Aunts Missy & Holly Running Rabbit, Nikki Many Guns, Delores (Marcel) Right Hand, Leanna Three Suns, Rayvon Rabbit Carrier & Ginger Maguire, Great Uncles Morris (Myrna) Running Rabbit, Garry (Karen) Running Rabbit, Wes (Birdie) Running Rabbit, Frank Three Suns, Stanford (Karen) Three Suns, Alvin Three Suns & Stanley Three Suns; Great Aunts Lena Running Rabbit, Colleen (Lionel) Two Horns, Joanne (Stu) Scout, Rita (Clarence) Running Rabbit, Donna Little Light, Ina Maguire, Jaylene Maguire & Joyce Royal.
