Matt Mizrahi

Matthew Eli Mizrahi 32, of Hampstead, NC, died Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at his home.

Matt was born in in New York on November 7, 1988 to his parents Jacob and Ann Strawbridge Mizrahi.

Matt was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who served oversees, officer Mizrahi joined the Wilmington Police Department in July of 2020. He was a quiet, hard-working, dedicated young officer who was well-liked by the community and members of his platoon.

In January, he saved the life of a 10-year-old girl in cardiac arrest by quickly administering CPR and remaining with her until paramedics arrived on scene. He did this expecting nothing in return and remained humble when the local media outlets broke the story.

In addition to his parents he is survived by his wife Orion Mizrahi; son Jacob Mizrahi and daughters Faith, Lily and Olivia Mizrahi; and brother Oliver Mizrahi.

Funeral services will be conducted 11:00 AM Monday, April 12, 2021 at Northside Baptist Church with full Military and Police Honors. Burial will be private. The Rev. Rob Strickland will officiate the service.
