My “Dae Dae” what am I supposed to say, how am I going to tell the world who you were. The thought that I just had to refer to you in the past tense, my blood, my bright light, my very own child, my boy. Doesn’t seem real.

Deshawn was the middle child, his older brother Elijah Hunter and younger brother Isaiah Williams. He graduated from high school with honors then immediately went to work for UPS. He loved making his own money. One of his favorite things to do was to shop for clothes and shoes. He loved looking his best and took pride in cleanliness and his appearance. He was a true artist and found so much joy drawing pictures from his imagination.

Deshawn was polite, silly, had impeccable manners and could dance his butt off. He always mentioned that having brothers was like having built in best friends. He loved playing basketball, playing video games, and eating healthy from his favorite store Whole Foods.

He leaves behind his mother: Felicia Hunter, father: Donald Williams, brothers: Elijah Hunter, Isaiah Williams, Grandmother: Mary Spears, Aunts: Tanya Spears Guiliacci, Lorena Ortiz, Dalia Ortiz (Jon) Uncles: Robert Ortiz, Sean Hunter, Terrence Hunter, Tyrone Spears (Angela), Neftali Ortiz (Rebecca) Cousins: Mercedes, NinaSimone, Arrow, Adriana, Kazuri, Imani, Khalifa, Malik, Nahsia, Jazzmin, Natalia, Kingston and many may more.

“My sweet sweet boy I’m going to miss you always grabbing my stomach then hysterically laughing”

Rest in paradise…
