Elizondo Albert Joe, “Zondo” ,15, passed away in an vehicle accident near Watford City, ND on March 4, 2019. He was on his way home from School with his siblings. He was born on March 12, 2003 in Chinle, AZ to Beaufort Joe and Dzani Benally. He had attended Black Mesa Community School, Pinon Elementary School, Mandaree School then Watford City High School.
Zondo loved hanging out with his friends, playing video games and fishing with his family. Always in competition to out fish his brother; but was willing to let you take his pole when he caught a fish and you hadn’t, so you could reel one in.
He had a kind soul, loved to take care of his siblings and always wanted to take care of everyone. Zondo spoke so fast sometimes you had to ask him what he was saying, but he was always willing to slow it down and tell you. He was one of the main people to make you laugh or try to make you laugh when you’re down. Zondo teased us all the time and tried to get a reaction out of you. He genuinely wanted to be around you to sit and talk. He liked being around babies and kids smaller than him, always said hi or how ya doing, always shared his kindness upon everyone. Zondo loved being around his friends, playing basketball, video games & riding bikes.
Zondo is survived by his parents Beaufort and Dzani; his sisters, Francesca Morgan, Yasmine Joe, Charismha Tsosie, Taliah Joe, Albertina Joe & Neveah Joe; his brothers, Clinton Tsosie & Johnathan Joe; and many cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
