ODESSA - Da'Quaylin "Qua Qua" Antwan Lee Howard, son of Janiqua Miller and Christopher Howard, was born April 20th, 2010. Raised by his grandparents, Cynthia Banks and Brewster Thomas, in Odessa, TX. He attended Dr. Lee Buice Elementary and Aladdin's Castle Learning Center, where his friends and teachers considered him family. Qua Qua was granted his angel wings on October 7th, 2016. Qua Qua's life would seem too short to many, but those that were touched by him understood the quality of his existence far exceeds the quantity of time for which he lived. His exuberant personality and vivacious smile melted the hearts of everyone around him. Qua Qua possessed strength and perseverance. His favorite color was dependent on the day, blue, red and green. He enjoyed Pizza, Paw Patrol, Minons, TMNT, and a newfound liking for Harry Potter and R. Kelly. Qua Qua is survived by numerous family members and friends. With his passing we remind everyone that his life is to be celebrated. Although we will miss him every day, we will cherish the memories and he will forever be in our hearts. There will be a memorial service Saturday, October 15th, 2016, from 11am-1pm at Rose of Sharon Baptist Church in Odessa, TX. A collation and balloon release will immediately follow the service at Woodson Park.
