Tavon received his education in Worcester County, Maryland and attended Pocomoke High School. He worked in several industries.
Tavon had a heart of gold, if he could help you in any way he would no matter what the task. He enjoyed doing door-dash with Keshell. He loved to joke on everyone, especially his family and friends.
Tavon knew Jesus as his Lord and personal Savior. He enjoyed going to church in his youth. Often, he would talk about the times his grandmother, Frances, would take him to Sunday school and church.
Tavon was well-known and loved by all. Zhe’el, Solei, and Bre’ajah were his pride and joy, he had so much love for his daughters. He was a diehard fan of the Green Bay Packers and the Los Angeles Lakers. Tavon loved sweet rice and boy did he love some good ole chicken and dumplings. His favorite sayings were “Yay Yay,” and he would always say “What’s up ugly?” He will truly be missed by all of his family and friends.
