Obituary of Elian Manuel Emmons

Elian Manuel Emmons, age 12, journeyed on to Heaven on Sunday, January 24, 2021, at his home in Dallas, Texas. He was born on October 12, 2008, in Corpus Christi, Texas to Erik David Emmons and Laura Anne Campise. Elian was born with Cri-Du-Chat (5p-), a chromosomal disorder that came with mental and physical challenges. His parents were told that he would never walk, talk, or be social. Though it took him longer than normal children, Elian pushed past all those boundaries. Elian enjoyed school and was finishing 6th grade at Greenwood Hills Elementary in Richardson I.S.D. Elian loved for people to whistle for him and would often greet them by asking them to do so. You would never see him without his green blanket. He also loved pufferfish, balls, sloths, beards, washers & dryers, and fireworks. If there was a chance to go for a ride in the car, Elian was ready to go. He loved to sing “Happy Birthday” to you even if wasn’t your birthday and “Jingle Bells” was sung year-round. Elian left a lasting impression on everyone he met. His sweet personality and big smile grew on you immediately. He is survived by his father and bonus mother, Erik and Lori Emmons, his mother and bonus dad Laura and Michael Campise, his brother Lucas Emmons, his sister Ella Sandra Campise, and his bonus sister Kira McKnight. Elian will be laid to rest in Restland Cemetery in Dallas, Texas. A visitation and Celebration of Life will be held at Park Cities Baptist Church and a graveside service will be held at Restland Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his memory to fivepminus.org to help support other families that have children with 5p-. see link (https://5psociety.givingfuel.com/5pminusdonation) Visitation: Park Cities Baptist Church - Ellis Chapel Monday, February 1 at 12:00 pm Celebration of Life: Park Cities Baptist Church - Ellis Chapel Monday, February 1 at 1:00 pm Burial Service: Restland Cemetery Monday, February 1, at 3:00 pm COVID protocols will be in place during the ceremony.
