Liam was born August 26, 2013, to Cedrick Wilkinson Jr. and Jessica Ortega in Mobridge SD. Little brother to Sunni and big brother to Lincoln. He always had a mischievous look, like he had a secret. Didn’t talk much or try to say many words until he was about three years old. Before he started to talk, he was already drumming along to “We Will Rock You” by Queen. He loved to play the drums and tried to learn his favorite songs.

Recently he started posting videos to YouTube and he had a dream of being a famous youtuber and giving away free stuff. After school and on the weekends, you could find Liam having a blast playing the Oculus or recording new videos to post on his YouTube channel. He also started to write his own rap songs and wanted to do a song with his dad as his producer. He was such a smart boy and he cared so much about everyone that he met. He enjoyed riding his bike and playing at the park. Also, his favorite things to do included swimming at the Fitness Center in White Shield and playing with his brothers. He recently started going to Boys and Girls Club and had made many good friends there as well.

Liam was always so selfless when it came to sharing thing. He would give up everything he had if he thought he could make someone’s day a little better. Liam loved going to school and telling anyone that would listen about his entire day. He also enjoyed telling people about a season recap of a show you wanted to watch and making plans for his next birthday/Christmas/Holidays or whatever he thought made sense to have a party type celebration for.

He loved his family and friend and always made an impact on the people he met. There is so much more about this special boy that should be said but no words could possibly be written to express how much love and gratitude we have for the time we were able to have him in our lives. He will be so greatly missed by so many. We will love and miss you always Bubby.
