Vlad loved his brothers, sisters, and nephews beyond compare and with all his heart. He was a beautiful and talented musician in every way. He took special interest in playing the piano and guitar, as well as traveling, fishing, and snorkeling.

He didn’t know how to read music, but he could listen to a song then turn around and play it. He would randomly come to the living room and play the family piano to everyone’s delight. Vlad loved to make people laugh and would often say or do anything to bring a smile to your face. He will forever be remembered for being a jokester.

He was and always will be Rebecca’s biggest protector. She will forever remember him as always being by her side. His biggest passion was working on cars with his dad and Papa.

Vlad was Olivia’s pride and joy. He was her light in the dark. Vlad was Raelynn’s best friend and the best big brother to all his siblings. Vlad was his grandma’s buddy, always in the kitchen with her. He loved to learn how to cook with her. He loved being with his grandpa and “teasing” with him.

Vladamier is preceded in death by his uncle, Aaron Ramage; and his granny, Brenda Pass. He is survived by his mom, Olivia (Randy) Cranford; father, Nick (Rebecca) Priest; sister, Bristall Priest; brother, Sabastian Priest; stepsiblings, Sierra Cranford, Raelynn Cranford, Dylan (Brianna) Hause and Elizabeth (Stuart) Mullins; grandparents, Randy (Marsha) Ramage, Marshall Priest and Debra Carroll; nephews, Graham Hause, Walker Hause and Presley Hause; as well as extended family and friends.
