Obituary

keon jerrale carter was born to Albert and Constance Carter on August 6, 1984, at Westlake Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, IL. Keon confessed his life to Christ at a young age and was a member of First Baptist Church of Melrose Park under the leadership of the late Pastor H. McNelty and now Pastor John L. Belser until his departure. Keon was known to be a very dependable, sel ess, and kindhearted person, our Gentle Giant. Keon was quite the competitor, participating in tumbling and earning a black belt in taekwondo, which his niece and nephew later took interest in. Keon loved his family and had especially close bond with his sister, Courtney.  ey were joined at the hip since the beginning, and she would ask and even if he said no he would do it anyway. He loved to see his friends whether close or distant, he wanted to know what they were up to. He supported the family, especially the babies. Uncle Keon was always there. He had various jobs over the years but was most exciteed about the ones that involved food because he loved to cook and try di erent recipes. We will miss your silly dances, your sense of style, the way you would get dressed and spray your favorite fragrance through the house, your food mashups, your random questions, unexpected journeys to the store, and that unforgettable smile. He leaves to rejoice in his memory: his parents, Albert Carter, Jr., and Constance Carter of Hillside; siblings, Courtney (Jeremy) Henderson, Al’lon Carter, Sharitta Norris of Hillside, IL; nieces and nephew, Armani Butts, Giovanni Henderson, and Journey Henderson; uncle, Charles Tolliver, Jr., of Chicago, IL; four aunts, Arnese (Willie) Earls of Prairieville, LA, Barbara Jones of New Orleans, LA, Velma (Vincent) Nwator of Georgia, and Rita Jones of Avondale, LA; step-grandmother, Emma Jean Tolliver of Maywood, IL; and a host of other family, friends, and loved ones.  ose who went before him to wait his arrival: his grandparents, Charles Tolliver, Sr., Daisy L. Tolliver, Albert Carter, Sr., and Viola M. Carter; and two uncles, Willie  omas and  omas Jones
