"The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord". Job 1:21

The Sanyeneh, Teeba, Scott and Bettie families announce with deep sorrow, the sadden passing of Edmund V.J. Sanyeneh.  Edmund was called home to be with his Heavenly Father in the last afternoon of Tuesday, January 9, 2018.

Edmund leaves to mourn his parents Mr. & Mrs. Albert Teeba Sr. and Idella Teeba, his grandmother Mrs. Victoria Bettie –Sanyeneh,  his five  children Zion Sanyeneh, Zari Sanyeneh, Zakiya Sanyeneh, Zephaniah Sanyeneh and Za’Moria Sanyeneh, his siblings Jamesetta Mona Sanyeneh-Rahim (Solomon Rahim), Wynitta Sanyeneh-Kesler (Corey Kesler), Victoria Sanyeneh (David Macarthy), Albert J. Teeba Jr.,  John D. Teeba, Isaac N. Teeba, Charlyn Logan (foster sister) , Curtis T. O’Brian (foster brother) . He has host of nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins, and his extended relatives and  friends to cherish his memory. Edmund’s biological father Mr. Montgomery Scott predeceased before him. 

Edmund’s life was short lived on earth, yet he touched so many lives, and will be greatly missed by everyone. He was very talented and artistic. Many described him as one of DMV’s most  greatest art legend of his time. His hands were so magical with any paintbrush. He was a model and had his own fashion line (Showoff Clothing) , drew on and painted (clothes, shoes, houses, ties, cars, paintings, and much more).

Edmund will be remembered as the life of the party at any family functions, telling silly jokes and his “crazy dance moves ”. Edmund was a generous person who would easily give the shirt off his back if it would help you. Edmund's fun-loving soul will be missed  by all of his friends and family who knew & loved him. We know that our beloved Edmund is resting peacefully in the arms of our Heavenly Father. We love you Edmund..sleep on. Thank you for all your love and support you gave. Although, you departed us soon without saying your final "goodbyes" , "I love you" and "I will miss you", you never be forgotten in our hearts.
