Obituary for Gaston Pernell Lee

Gaston Pernell Lee, the son of Charlie B. Lee and Willie Frank Lee, departed this life on August 24, 2019. Gaston attended the Newark Public School System and was employed with the City of New York Grounds and Transportation.

As an adult Gaston Struggled, but one thing for sure when the light clicked on in his head he knew what he needed to do to pull himself back together. Gaston enjoyed old school music. When the music started he would dance the night away. Gaston (Pee Wee) was a clean cut guy who did not play about his rings. He would sit for hours on end cleaning and polishing his rings.

Gaston was by far the humblest man anyone could have met. He cared for his children and family very deeply and also was a goodhearted person. Gaston was very big on politics and would watch plenty of documentaries. He was the type who would sit and not say much, but best believe if you challenged him with questions about politics he could tell you from start to finish. He could become a very outspoken man when he became angry. We all know when he recited the words: “I swear to Lord”, we all knew to step aside.

As the curtains closed, he was preceded in death by: his father, Willie Frank Lee; one son, Carl; two brothers, Frankie Lee and Wendell Lee; and one sister, Claudette Lee.

Gaston leaves to cherish and honor his life: his five children, Sharell Louissant, Pernell Whitaker, Vanessa, Shakil and Karetta Whitaker; his four stepchildren, Robert Whitaker, Desmond, Terrence and Terrick; his mother, Charlie B. Lee; two sisters, Sharlene Shabazz and Tymeeka Green; two brothers, Edward and Patrick Lee; two sons-in-law, Dwayne Green and Raheem Shabazz; two brothers-in-law, Abdoul Kouanda and Jean Louissant; three aunts, Mrs. Willie May Cummings, Ms. Kathleen and Naomi Ingram; seven grandchildren; and a great host of nieces, nephews and other relatives whose lives he touched deeply.
