A true model of humility; a calmed in the sea of storm; a fortress of strength and resilience in adversary
Gone, but never forgotten.
Sun rise – September 26, 1970 - Sunset – July 5, 2015
When we eclipsed the physical height of our breath, posterity for sure, will be measured, not by the legacy of wealth amassed, nor, by the urge of excess in material vanity. Rather, the relevance of what matters most, fraternity, benevolence, charity, service in our common humanity and selfless grace, will be a lasting testament of a life well lived. The life of Mr. Napoleon McGee personified and appealed to our highest calling, as a human community. Humility, service to his fellow man and an insatiable passion for life, is a legacy truly befitting this humble soul.
The family and friends of Mr. Napoleon McGee, announced with profound sorrow and unrestrained grieve, his untimely home going which occurred on the morning of July 5th, 2015, at his home in Providence, RI. Napoleon or Gbarlu, as he was affectionately called, leaves to mourn, his beloved wife Sabrina McGee, his loving mother, Miss Louise “Sis Lou” Hill, of Providence, RI, his sisters, Miss Delores Brooks of Providence, RI and Miss Nelly McGee, of Dallas, Texas. He is also survived by his brothers, Mr. Richard Parker, Timothy Parker and George Scott, all of Liberia. His father, Mr. Frederick McGee, predeceased him. Also, left to cherish his loving memories, are Mrs. Rose Allison and his foster parents, Miss. Raven Ese Moore and Mr. Patrick Waheed, with whom he spent his early years, prior to matriculating to the United States.
Napoleon leaves to mourn, a whole host of love ones, including Nieces, Nephews, cousins and a multitude of extended relatives and beloved friends, across the breadth and length of the United States and the Republic of Liberia.
Napoleon provided for us, serenity in time of storm. Now that the stormy weather is over, he will forever live in time capsule of our collective memories. As he leaped earth’s bound and ascended to the spiritual realm of his heavenly host, those fond memories will forever etch our minds and thoughts. May light perpetual shined upon him, as he inspires us to carry on.
