Isaiah Glenn Silvio Peralta was born April 2, 2000, the youngest child and son of Glenn and Loena Peralta. He was and will forever be deeply loved and cherished by his parents and older sister, Hazel, admired by his friends, and blessed by anyone he encountered. Isaiah went to Northgate High School and after served in the United States Navy for two years.
Isaiah was gifted with many talents. He loved playing basketball often with his dad and friends. He developed a love for music and would sometimes write lyrics and poems.He became very good at beatbox and playing the guitar while singing with his mother and sister. He could make people laugh without even trying. From such a young age, he was always curious and eager to try new things.
To some, Isaiah was a quiet man but for those he opened up to couldn’t help but to be filled with his bright spirit. His energy was contagious and he truely was one of a kind. He was full of compassion for others and love for the Lord.
The following is shared from the Navy Times:
“Precisely what happened remains unclear, but officials said this week that the 20-year-old Peralta shot himself on the Naval Air Station North Island pier at about 8 a.m. Tuesday.
He is assigned to the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, which got underway at about 10 a.m. that morning.
Peralta was transported to the University of California-San Diego Medical Center and pronounced dead there, Navy spokesman Brian O’Rourke told Navy Times Tuesday.
Naval Air Forces officials say Peralta hailed from Walnut Creek, California.
He was unmarried and had no children.
Peralta enlisted in September 2018 and reported to TR in August 2019, his first assignment out of training, according to his service record.
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating Peralta’s suicide and officials from the agency did not respond to Navy Times requests for comment Thursday night.
In a letter sent to the TR community dated Tuesday and obtained by Navy Times, commanding officer Capt. Eric Anduzeexpressed sorrow over Peralta’s death.
“We will honor our Sailor’s life by the way we live ours,” he wrote. “As I spoke to the crew this evening, I reminded the Rough Riders that we are indeed a team; that everyone, every single one of us matters; that without even a single one of us, life wouldn’t be the same.”
“Let’s take time as a team – you, your loved ones, friends, and me – to remember the value we bring to each other’s lives and remind one another that we are in this together.”
Peralta’s family could not be reached for comment, and the factors that led the young man to take his own life remain unclear.
His suicide comes as the crews and families of Theodore Roosevelt are preparing for another deployment, mere months after the ship returned to San Diego in July from a cruise where a COVID-19 outbreak infected roughly 25 percent of the sailors onboard and forced the carrier to sideline in Guam for months this spring.”
