On November 27, 1990, the sun rose and the world was blessed with the birth of Shami Omar Cox in Crofts Hill Clar-endon Jamaica WI. He was the second oldest of five (3 brothers and 1 sister). Shami grew up in Jamaica for the first seventeen plus years of his life, he migrated to the United States on July 12, 2008. Shami was a fun, loving, headstrong individual with the heart of a lion, and a sense of humor out of this world. He feared nothing and protected those he knew and loved at all cost. He knew how to give a good laugh and had a vibrant personality. He enjoyed cruising and lived everyday as if it were his last. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, fiance, and friend. He was an amazing fiance to a strong woman who stood behind him through good times and bad. A woman who pushed him to be his best at all times. A woman who prayed for him and believed in him when he couldn't pray or believe in himself. A woman who loved him genuinely and unconditionally.
Shami was very skilled with his hands; he was a skilled car mechanic and had the ability to take things apart and bring them back to life. Once he had his mind made up to take on a task, he followed through. He had dreams of traveling the world.
Shami was preceded in death by his grandmother Imogene Welcome, grandfather Llyod Cox, and his brother Kevoyn Cox. Shami leaves to cherish his memories, his grandmother Hilda O'Conner, his mother Kareene Francis, father Ronald Cox (Marcia Cox), brother Damiel Cox, sister Monique Anderson (Jovel Anderson), his two nieces Amaiya Pennant and Sanai Norman, nephew Jovel Anderson [r., loving fiance Krystal Merchant, and a host of friends and family. Shami was known and loved by many. God called him home, but his memories will live on.
