Julius Rance Jr. was born to Julius Rance Sr. and Susan Barnett on October 30, 1978 in Santa Barbara, California. Ten years later he moved with his family to Seattle Washington where he would eventually graduate from Ingraham High School, being well known for his love of basketball. It was also during this time that Julius would mentor and work with younger kids from different organizations. This was a passion of Julius’s, as he possessed such a kind, warm, and fun-loving spirit.
Julius was always a faithful, God-fearing man. And throughout all the pain and challenges life brought to him, he always kept a smile on his face. Julius was a devoted Father, Son, Brother, and provider. He was also loyal and caring, giving the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He has left behind such a powerful example for his children and all those whose lives he touched.
Julius patiently awaited to reunite with his mother Susan, who left to be with our Father in 2001. He is now free of pain and dancing with his mother in heaven.
Julius Rance Jr. is survived by his father, Julius Rance Sr., 3 brothers: Melvin, Purnell, and Eric, 5 children: Tatiana, Julius III, Julianna, Jayla, and Dayv’on, 2 grandchildren: Micarlo Milam and Jayah Rance, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
