Last Thursday Nov. 6 Black Hollywood lost a brother, a friend, and an excellent actor on the verge of being a force to be reckoned with. He was on his way for sure, taken too soon. Anyone that knew him knew he was one of those people who lit up the room, always a smile, respect, and genuine warmth. He will surely be missed. Rest in Power my Brother.
