Elijah Charles Buffaloe, 31, of Long Branch, NJ, His sunrise was on February 10, 1993, to Tamara “Tammy” Buffaloe and the late Charles McMillian. His sunset was on February 13, 2024.

He graduated from Long Branch High school in 2011 where he played football. Elijah dedicated his professional life to the community, working in lawn maintenance for Capelli Sports where he enjoyed watching the competitions and practices. His first job was nourishing young minds as a Latch Key Leader at Lenna Conrow. The Children would see him run to work and yell “run Mr. Buffaloe run.” His commitment to his work was paralleled only by his commitment to his family and friends.

Elijah's leisure time was filled with simple joys; he was happiest when sharing in the laughter and company of his children, whether it was through sports, bike rides, or visits to the beach. He was a regular at summer cookouts and bonfires, where he was the heart and soul of every gathering. He was generous with the community whether it was giving bags of clothes to those he knew needed them, volunteering in donation drives or showing up to the sporting events for the kids so they felt supported. He always made sure everyone around him was taken care of. Elijah was a pillar of warmth and love in the community and his family.

Those who knew Elijah will remember him as a man who cherished the bonds of family and friendship, and who lived his life with a genuine spirit of kindness and joy. His memory will be held in the hearts of those he leaves behind.

Elijah was predeceased by his father, Charles McMillian, his maternal grandparents, and his special Aunt Diane Buffaloe who surely greeted him with love upon his arrival in eternity.

He is survived by his adoring mother, Tammy Buffaloe; his beloved children, Isaiah, Ava, Michael, Paityn, and Chace; his dear sister, Aja Bishop; his beloved brothers, Richard "Rickie" Bishop Jr, Ian Bishop (Shantell Cox), His cherished bonus brothers, Sasha Everett (Yuridia), Jason and Justin Buffaloe and his sibling on his father’s side; his devoted life partner, Toni Roach-Cardella;  His aunts, Kim, Melanie and Sherin Buffaloe; Uncles, Brian (Patricia) and Jon “Bonnie” Buffaloe; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends including Destiny Maldonado.

A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Please join us as we celebrate Elijah's life and legacy.

A repast will be held from 4:00pm-9:00pm at The Elks, 306 Shrewsbury Ave., Red Bank, NJ.
