Obituary for William "Junior" Tilley

William “Junior” Tilley was born in Kings County, New York on July 14, 1970 to William Battle and Shirley Tilley. William, the only child of his parents, was raised in a close-knit family; with loving assistance from his mother’s sisters (Aunt Mary and Aunt Hattie), amongst his five cousins who he endearingly referred to as his brothers and sisters; Hilda, Larry, Michael, Terrance and Terry. His youth was reflective of the tumultuous era in which he grew up yet he persevered through hardships and adversities always remaining loving, kind-spirited, and resilient.

William possessed an entrepreneurial - philanthropic spirit. He assumed the calculated risk and executed the necessary plans to ensure he was able to provide for his family. A generous and benevolent spirit, William was known to give selflessly often resulting in self-sacrifice.

Upon meeting the love of his life, Jasmine Henry; William’s best qualities were able to shine. He embraced his role as a provider and protector of his family. William and Jasmine were proud and loving parents of four children; Myasia, Donavan, Marques and Demetrius.

William derived utmost joy from spending time with his family and “Holdin’ Ah Vibez” with his “Brethren”. Contrary to being born to American parents, William was in fact a Jamaican through and through. Not only did he possess an authentic accent, he embraced the culture and found comradery amongst Jamaican people. Within this community he formed bonds with individuals who promoted righteousness, unity and upliftment; ideals he held near. William could often be heard reciting biblical verses, listening to roots and culture music, or discussing the state of humanity.

William leaves to cherish his memories: his sons, Quantae, Donavan, Marques and Demetrius; his daughter, Myasia; eight grandchildren; two aunts, Mary and Hattie; five cousins; his nieces and nephews, Sherelle, Tyrell, Michael Jr., Paschae, Mieshawn, Jasmine, Beyoncé, Brionna and Tionni; his brethren, Patrick, Waverly and Raheem; amongst a host of friends and extended family.
