C’Quan had a God given gift to make people laugh and smile. Every time he entered a room the light and joy, he had shined from his heart. He loved to hear the beat drop to any song as he would sing along and claim the dance floor as his. He never wanted anyone to be sad in his presence; his arms were always open for the best hugs as they were from the kindness of his heart. He loved working with kids. It gave him great joy to give back to his community and create lifetime bonds with everyone he encountered.
He would often be seen hanging out with friends and family bringing comedy and happiness. His smile was so genuine and could brighten the darkest day. His laugh could make anyone feel what joy he felt in that moment as it encouraged them to join in. The love he had for people is one that cannot be matched or forgotten.
He is proceeded in death by his Uncle Johnny Reed and Grandmother Marion “Peaches” Younger.
He is survived by his Mother Iris Reed and Father John Samuels and Grandmother Cleo; His three sisters Chakea, Chakea, and Touchana and brother Willie.
