                                                                           Summary of Life

 Lesean Terrell Knox was born on Tuesday, July 16, 1985 to the late Leonard Ronald Knox and Elaine Fellows – Knox.  People who are born on July 16 in 1985 have an astrological sign of Cancer.  Cancer’s life pursuit is constant reassurance and intimacy and a secret desire to feel safe (emotionally, spiritually, romantically, and financially).  People of this zodiac sign like art, home-based hobbies, relaxing near or in water, and helping loved ones. 

Lesean did not follow anyone’s trail. He created his own path and followed his own beat.  As a child, teen and adult, he was quiet, but he observed everyone and everything around him.  When he spoke on events, or issues of the day, it was always with keen insight and thoughtfulness.    Sean was a thinker; he had opinions that did not allow him to be confined to educational institutions or social constructs.  He was on the same trajectory of a Malcolm X; he was constantly evolving and not weighed down by the judgment of others.

 Before Sean Terrell departed this life, he was on his path to finding and creating a more intimate relationship with GOD, starting a business with his brother, Leonard, called Knox and Knox, LLC.  He also obtained his books to begin his studies toward completing his GED.  This was his path, not a path that was defined by social constructs, but a path that Lesean defined for himself.  He wanted to set an example and be an example for his nephews, Keshaun, Kaiden and Lennox, who he loved and adored.  This may be a surprise to some, but not to those he loved and those who loved and supported him without judgment.  

Lesean also found love and support from his special lady friend, Sherri Williams.  They experienced a special bond that he shared with his family and closest friends.  He expressed marriage and having children for the first time, because of the love he felt with Sherri and her daughter, Savannah “Savvy” Jenkins.  Sean was special.  He was a light to all he encountered if one took the time to know him. Sherri took the time to know him and love him. 

Relationships and Family were important to Lesean. He cared for his mother, Elaine, and made sure she had everything she needed. He cooked, cleaned and took her to the grocery store before he began his day.  He was a thoughtful and dedicated son who loved and adored his mother.  

Lesean and Leonard, were inseparable since birth. Lesean was the younger of the two and often reminded Leonard of that fact with his witty sense of humor.  When you saw one, you saw the other.  Leonard always saw himself as Lesean’s protector and Lesean always saw himself as Leonard’s voice of reason.  They complimented each other’s personalities even when they argued, but they would never stay angry for long and would always end the feud with “I love you bruh.” Lesean loved his brother and always wanted the absolute best for him.  

Lesean left this earth leaving words to live by, FAITH, KNOWLEDGE, LOVE, EDUCATION, DEDICATION, FORGIVENESS and FORGIVING YOURSELF.  Please honor Lesean’s memory by defining your own path for life and happiness. Never stop evolving to improve who you are. Most importantly, love your family and special friends and tell them that you love them every moment you can.  Lesean lived, loved and he was loved.
