Steven John Sumaliki
Birth: Mar. 1, 1985
Elkins Park
Montgomery County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 11, 2010
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

Steven was our first born son and the middle child. He has an older sister and a younger brother. Steven was diagnosed with depression most of his short life. Finally the end of 2009, we found out he had Asperger's Syndrome. Asperger's Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive pattern of behavior and interests. It's hard to detect this condition and hard to treat.

Steven just could not cope with this and ended his own life. This condition is now showing up in a lot of people and hopefully the earlier you can detect this, the better. It was too late for Steven.

Steven and his pop-pop were buddies the day my son was born. His pop-pop taught him all about nature and the love of wild life even before Steven can walk. By the age of three, Steven knew all the names of trees, plants, animals, insects, etc. Those two were inseparable. When Steven had his mood swings, my dad was the only one who could calm him down. My dad, Ray, died on Steven's 21st birthday and that's the day my son's spirit broke. Steven lost his only buddy in the world. He decided to join his pop-pop and is buried right next to him.

Steven is survived by both parents, sister and brother.

Steven was the grandson of
Ray & Esther Mitchell
Leon Sr. & Philomena Sumaliki

Steven aged 25 years, 10 days

He was laid to rest on March 19, 2010.

May he find the peace in Heaven that escaped him on Earth!

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
