On Thursday, July 20, 2023, Rashad Louis James, affectionately known as “Lowkey”, a beloved son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin, was taken from us at the very young age of 18. He was born in Alliance, OH on February 2, 2005 and was raised in Hopewell, VA.

Rashad was preceded in death by his grandfather, George M. Crow (who passed on April 29, 1988) and his cousin, Kristin A. McCrady (who passed on February 11, 2017).

Rashad is survived by his mother, Jamie; father figure, Milton; brothers, TK and Michael; sisters, De’Asia, Amonie and Ava; niece, Riley; grandparents, Barbara (Jeff); aunts, Angela (Ty) and Jacqi (Nelli); uncles, James and George; longtime girlfriend, Jaidah; and a host of cousins, other relatives and friends.

Rashad was loved by many and will be missed tremendously. He was a gentle soul who touched the lives of many, especially his family.

While his life was cut short, Rashad achieved many things and we are so proud of him. May the memory of his smile never fade as his soul rest in peace.

Services for Mr. James will be private.
