November 7, 1988 - April 6, 2021

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.
