Devon D’Marc Willis, 20, passed away, Sunday, June 21, 2020. He was born March 2, 2000 in Port Arthur Texas to Brandie Rhodes Coleman and Danny Willis.
As a child, Devon attended Church at Church on the Rock North in Beaumont. As a young man he attended Fellowship Church in Antioch California. Even at the very young age of 20 Devon had experienced a lot. Devon experienced victory, which if you knew Devon, elated him beyond measures. He experienced defeat, which again if you knew Devon, he despised more than anything. Devon experienced love, and it was true and deep. Devon loved football, Analiese and Devon. Devon was fiercely loyal to his family and friends and those in his circle knew he would always have their back. His smile was infectious and radiant and the dimples were infinite. He presented a very tough exterior, but on the inside he was extremely tender hearted and passionate about things that mattered most to him. With the sparkle in his eyes for life, he had a determined spirit and planned to attend DVC this fall to play football and further his education.
