Elory Syozitaro

Elory Syozitaro passed away Wednesday, September 15, 2021 in Tyler at the age of 51.

Elory was born in Koror, Palau on March 23, 1970 to Syozitaro Rekisiwang and Naemi Teriong. He met the love of his life, Julia, on the island of Guam. They married on December 7, 1996. To this marriage, three children were born, and two adopted.

The couple lived on Palau, a small humble island in the middle of the ocean, until 1999 when they moved to Guam. After the birth of their third child, they moved to the United States to seek medical care for their son. Elory sold everything he owned and went door to door seeking donations to help get his family to the US. A small Evangelist church in Guam donated buddy passes to make their move. Elory gave up his home, family, and all his possessions to save his son’s life. They arrived in the US with nothing but the clothes on their back and one suitcase containing a pair of clothes for each person. His son, Jackson, is alive today because of the sacrifices Elory made.

Elory worked four jobs, one of them being a rural mail carrier in Quitman for the United States Postal Service. After work he enjoyed coming home and wrestling with Jackson, his son. He also loved riding his motorcycle, hanging out on the back porch, and cha-cha dancing to Palauan music under the strobe light. Back in Palau, he spent his free time by the ocean or spearfishing.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Naemi Teriong.

Survivors include his wife, Julia Syozitaro of Quitman; father, Syozitaro Rekisiwang of Palau; 5 children, Mika Edwards, Teylar Perkins, Evangeline Syozitaro, Eloihim Syozitaro, and Jackson Syozitaro; 5 sisters, Ellyne Syozitaro, Elmera Syozitaro, Elspeth Syozitaro, Elfina Syozitaro, and Myra Ann Syozitaro; one brother, Ely W. Syozitaro; and several nieces, nephews, extended family, his post-office family, and many friends.

Elory my love, I love you with every breath I take. I miss you more that anyone could imagine. I will do my best to fill your shoes while holding onto mine. I will always take care of our Babies. Not many people in life get to say they actually spent a lifetime with their soulmate. But the best day of my life was the day God blessed me with you. This is hard for me and our children. But we are trying. To my soulmate, my love my life.
I love you. RIP
