It has been a privilege and honor to serve with this man. He was a brother, a friend, a family member, and a hero. You would never see Antwan without a smile on his face. He was a man of love, character, integrity, and passion.
Rest in paradise brother. You earned it. “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
