April was born July 22, 1977 in Reidsville, NC to the late William Howard Tate and the late Lucy Hyatt Krites. She was a graduate of Reidsville High School and Rockingham Community College with an associate’s degree and was currently a medical coordinator and caregiver.

April loved life more than anything. Family and friends were April’s passion and delight. She was natural caregiver, whether it was a client of hers, family or friend. She was always there with a smile on her face asking how she could help. There is no doubt about the love she had for her son Daylin. From day one she loved and cared for him like no other mother could. The sun rose and set on Daylin. She showed him love, happiness, and the meaning of life. He will forever be her baby boy.

April was preceded in death by her father, Howard Tate and mother, Lucy Jean Krites; grandparents, Bill Preslar, Sr., Javan “J.C.” and Addie Tate.
