He leaves to cherish his memory his loving mother, Lucy Coles; son, Elijah; daughter, Mya; grandmother Juanita Coles; 3 aunts, Lenora Alston (Joel), Charlotte Smith and Cynthia Allen; 5 uncles, Elmus Mosby (Betty), Ronald Coles (Lisa), Gregory Coles (Gail), Donald Coles (Vee Anne), Steve Coles (Patricia); great aunts; great uncles; nieces; nephews; a god mother, Judy Brown; cousins and friends.

God knew that Huckie was tired and a cure was not to be.

So, he put his arms around Huckie, and whispered, "Come to me".

The Golden Gate stood open. God knew you needed rest.

His garden must be beautiful for he only takes the best.

Although we cannot touch you, you're never really gone.

For in the hearts of us who love you, your memory lives on.
