Spazz and Spiffy, reunited through tragedy

Nicknamed “Spazz,” he loved boxing, baseball and music. His twin brother, Darius, was nicknamed “Spiffy.”

In April 2018, Darius died in a in a car accident. Spazz marked a birthday alone. In June, the school district denied his family’s pleas for Spazz to walk the stage at Lafayette High School’s graduation to receive Spiffy’s diploma.

Soon, it was his turn to move on. Daveon Zyon Harris, 18, was shot and killed in St. Joseph, Missouri, on Aug. 9, 2018. On Oct. 10, his mother updated her Facebook page to show two burial urns: One for Spiffy, one for Spazz.
