Shaheen A. Thomas, 33, passed away on Saturday, July 4, 2020. Shaheen was a very devoted and loving person. His family will remember him always as a protector to everyone, including his neighborhood. He enjoyed playing football and basketball with his children; and he loved to rap and sing. All who met him considered him to be a "play fein" and joke around, but his all time favorite specialty was to tow cars and trucks and to ride motorcycles.
Shaheen is survived by his wife, Desiree Buchanan; his 5 children: Aamaisa, Jalil, Shaheen Jr., Mila, and Baby Kye; his 7 siblings: Elana, Bianca, Heather, Ashley, Denzel, Justin, Brianna; his 3 godchildren: Ace, Solae, Kennedy; and by his many loving nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends. He is predeceased in life by his parents, Charles Thomas and Gladys (Cathy) Ortiz.
