Daykwane helped others through a loving heart and listening ear. He loved playing sports, especially basketball. He was a man of his word and actions. Daykwane helped so many people in his experiences in life through his work from working with children and adults with mental illness. His goal was to always take care of his family through hard work and growth. Daykwane made it his life mission to accomplish all that others said he wouldn’t. 

His greatest love and accomplishment was his daughter Brielle. He strived to give her the life he never had by being her doting and loving father. 

He loved to dance, sing and bring happiness to all those around him. 

Dayday had so many family, friends and loved ones, too many to name each and every person. If you know him then you know he loved you unconditionally and ask that you honor him with strength, honesty and love as he loved you. 


A funeral to honor his life will be held Saturday October 29th, at First Nazareth Missionary Baptist Church (146 Pine St.), at 3pm. He will lie in state from 2pm until the beginning of the service. Viewing will be held at Avery's Memorial Chapel on Friday October 28th from 3pm - 7pm. The funeral will be live streamed on Avery's Memorial Chapel's Facebook page. After the service the family will receive guest at Shiloh Community Center (121 Shiloh Rd Asheville, NC 28803)
