Bishop Babb

bishop babb
Bishop, born January 1, 2001 in Augusta, GA, to Michael Babb (Moorhead, MN) and Lisa Hoose (Portsmouth, RI), who survive at home. He was the oldest of his sibling(s); Elijah Babb, and of his half siblings; Alexzia Hoose, Kori Babb, Nathaniel Babb, Riley Babb, and Lauryn Babb. Bishop attended school in New York, Florida and in North Dakota, so it’s safe to say he’s impacted the lives of many. Like many young men, he held many jobs, but the one he liked most was working as a concrete laborer, despite always saying he wanted to be a PE teacher when he “grew up”. Bishop had a heart of gold, a smile that lit up a room, and an empathetic, compassionate personality. He had a way to make you smile, and laugh, at any given moment, especially when you were feeling down. You could always count on Bishop to be there for you. In his presence you could feel that he radiated love, safety, boundless energy, and was often considered the life of the party. Bishop had many interests, which included, basketball, music, dirt bikes, sneakers, art, fishing, but his family always took precedence. Bishop was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Robert Hoose and Linda Parrinello. In addition to his parents and siblings, left to cherish his memory are; paternal grandparents Michael and Mae Rauls (Evans, GA), step-grandpa Manny Parrinello (Ocala, FL), Bishop’s “second mother”, Lisa’s identical twin, Lucy Hoose (Ocala, FL), his “twin” cousin, Briyanna Poole, and her son Jaxon (Ocala, FL). Aunt(s); Julie Nardi (Poughkeepsie, NY), Angel Rauls (Fargo, ND), Monique Rauls (Evans, GA), uncle(s); Kelly Hoose (Oxford, MA), Eric Hoose (Apex, NC), Christopher Rauls (Stone Mountain, GA), Jason Rauls (Texas), Patrick Rauls (Denver, CO), Austin Rauls (US Army), Quame Rauls (Augusta, GA), cousin(s); Camryn (Ocala, FL), Jovani, Andreo, Angelina and Gianna (Poughkeepsie, NY), Rowan (Apex, NC) Alexandria (Augusta, GA), Julia (Evans, GA), Juliet and Scarlet (Denver, CO). Bishop considered everyone in his life important to him, a part of his family, especially his friend/brother Dylan Broadwell. Bishop will be forever loved and deeply missed! A Celebration of Life Service (catered)will be held Saturday, May 21, 2022, 3pm at Boulger Funeral Home, 123 10th St, Fargo ND.
