A true friend, who always, always lifted others up. Nakia always, always deflected praise, gave others credit even though he was deserving. He is truly missed. So grateful our paths crossed and hopefully they will again, if I am so worthy. If they do, he'll smile and pat me on my back and give me the praise, just as he always has. My sincere condolences to his family. Miss you, big guy!

Nakia, Just want you to know that I am most appreciative to the most high for allowing our paths to cross. You were a very good person. I enjoyed our endless conversations about everything under the sun. Thanks for being in my wedding and thanks for being a friend that I could always call on when I needed you. May God grant you a place in his kingdom. I will cherish our friendship for all the days of my life. Thanks for being a wonderful friend, Missing you from the bottom of my heart. Keith Bennett

Kia did't know you very well, only through Chief. You left an everlasting impression on my son Ryan. Thank you soooo much for being there for him. You will always be remembered. Ryan, Shelton and Lori

Basketball Officials wear the same uniform, but we all aren't alike. Kia was the model of a gentleman and we need more like him. Rest in Peace and we will "see you again" in a land that knows no parting, because, "Christians never say goodbye for the last time."

I am a member of Nakia HS basketball association. My very first GHSA game was with Nakia and this year my first game of the season was with him. I can still remember his words "Tony, make sure you look over your shoulder when going to the new lead". From this moment on I will see Nakia as I run to the lead. He always made you so comfortable and was always concerned about you. I think we talked more about football and volleyball in our pregames. This one really hurts. My condolences to his family. He is missed already.

My heart is heavy to have heard that I've lost a fellow official. I know that Nakia was well loved and respected. He had great character and a big heart. These past 7 years will not be forgotten. I send my deepest condolences and prayers to the family, friends, and all of those that have encountered with this great spirited man. Rest in peace love. Very Respectfully, Climmie

Nakia.... It was an honor and a privilege my Brother.... My deepest sympathy goes out wholeheartedly to your Family. May the Lord forever keep you in His unchanging grace...Rest peacefully....

A poem for Nakia.... Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone. And no one knows the heartache as I carry on. My heart still ache with sadness and many tears still flow. What it meant to lose you,no one will ever know. My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. There will always be a heartache and often a silent tear, but always a precious memory of the days when you were here. If tears could make a staircase, and heartaches make a lane, we'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again. I hold you close within my heart and there you will remain, until that day we meet again. -author unknown To the family I pray the peace of God comfort you.

Nakia you will truly be missed by your family and friends. I haven't seen you since we left Troup High but the laugh we had in the hallway as we would say the West Point Crew was memorable. All I say now is rest on my friend and Job well done. My prayers are with your family and friends during this time.
Posted by Frances Traylor on 6th March 2015
My deepest condolences to Nakia's family. Please know that he may be gone from you, but he will always remain in your heart. May your void be filled with fond memories of his full, but short time with you. Frances Traylor

I met Nakia several years ago through one of his dearest friends (Hassy). Nakia was a kind soul and a true friend with a big heart. He had a great sense of humor & behind the tears are many memories of joy and laughter. Nakia is resting in peace now and no longer have to worry about the troubles of this world. I truly pray God gives strength to his family and friends as you celebrate his life and legacy. Nakia - you were a great person and will be missed so much.

"Weeping may remain for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning" GOD has ended the season of a good friend and mentor, simply stated he was just good people. His life transended beyond officiating because he was a Blessing to so many.Kia you will be missed my brother. GOD Bless you and yours!

To the family,it sadden me to hear about Nakia. He was a great person. I remember he would be standing in ApolloMD lobby and he would greet me with that beautiful smile. He would always have something positive to say to me and he took time out of his busy schedule to come to some of my son's football games. "Gone to soon" but I know God is too wise to make mistakes. We love and miss you. Family I will continue praying that God gives you all strength during this difficult time. Nakia will be forever missed.
Posted by Ester Williams on 5th March 2015
My son, My son, My son......I am SO hurt that you left me. When you were here at the house last, and we had our long talks, as usual....you left and said "I should have been talked to you." I had no idea that was our last time talking. I didn't know you were going to leave me. Thank you for being a Great Great father to my grand son. You always helped to take care of me when I was sick, now you have left me. I promise, I will always help see about your son. Who am I going to make corn bread and sweet potato pies for now? I Love You, and I'm gonna miss you!! Mrs. Williams

The world has lost an angel. I'll never forget the smile you shared with the world. That gave us all so much joy. I never thought when I saw you two weeks ago that would be my last time. God is blessed to have you on his team. Watch over us bro!
Posted by Tanya Artis on 4th March 2015
Nakia left an impression in my life I won't never forget. I can't gather the words together to even say how much I will miss you. I thank God for the time spent. We'll see each other again. Love you always..prayers to your family

I had the awesome pleasure of working with Nakia, at ApolloMD for over 4 years. He always had a smile on his face or a kind word to say. He genuinely cared about people and their well being. When I heard the news it was like my very own brother had passed on, because that is the kind of spirit that Nakia walked with every time I saw him and he will truly be missed. To the family: mourn your loss for as long as you need to, but please know that Nakia is resting in Our FATHERS bosom, and he was better than this world ever deserved. May our FATHER GOD give you peace beyond all understanding.

A friend, A Blessing in Disguise and well proven to be wise! Mentor. His journey was an important one, but not as important as his destination. My friend still in the mist of this all you can trust Him! I know he will keep you. Because GOD is a safe resting place. I love that the l Lord allow you to spend some precious time with me. To a Man that loved PEOPLE and did what he could to help.

Nakia, An awesome person with a big smile and positive attitude towards life. Being around him was always a joy and learning experience. To the family, no one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. But take comfort in knowing that he is now resting in the arms of our Lord. My deepest condolences to you and your family Willie Jones

My deepest condolences to Nakia’s family. I pray that God gives the family strength and peace. I am grateful to have known Nakia. His jokes, smile and charm made a rough day into a good day. I’m saddened to hear that such a beautiful person has left us too soon.
Posted by Kameko McLemore on 4th March 2015
Kia, I remember sitting around laughing at you because you were always joking and had a smile! The 90's were the best! Even though it's been a while since we spoke or saw each other, I remember the old days like yesterday! You will truly be missed and you were "Primetime" if there ever was one! ♡
Posted by Yakima Douglas on 4th March 2015
No one could have told me Nakia last week as we parted in the elevator, that it would be my last goodbye. Who's going to guide me now to the best college prospect for Zuri? I'm going to miss you asking me every Monday "how did we do this weekend"? "who won the game"? You are truly loved and missed Nakia, but I do have consolation in knowing my friend, that we will meet in the "East". The angels are rejoicing....Sleep well my brother. To the family: You've raised a fine young man with a loving heart! May that peace of God which surpasses all understanding, rest with you as you get through this time.

I never thought this day would come. How my heart aches to hear this sad news. And, to think I thought of you a few weeks ago and didn't call. I am so numb right now. I wonder if you realized how many lIves you've touched and how many people love you. I will always remember you my dear friend. You have left an impression on my heart! Thanks for sharing your smile with the world and for being a brief part of my life. I will forever cherish the memory of you. Hugs ** My condolences to the family. I pray that God strengthens you with each passing day. **

The saying is so true that the good die young! Nakia was such a Sweet, Fun, Loving person! I am glad to have had the honor of calling him a friend.Deepest Condolences to the family, he will truly be missed by all!

I pray for peace for his family and friends. It is hard to believe someone with so much life is gone. We can take comfort in the fact that he knew and loved God.
Posted by Niena Feme on 3rd March 2015
Baba and Niena Feme had the opportunity to meet Nakia on only two occasions. But Baba developed a love for Nakia from the very beginning. We especially loved and appreciated his close friendship to our son Hassiba. As with Hassiba, our hearts are heavy, but we know that God has the last word. He has chosen to send Nakia on his next journey. So we send our love and say "Rest in Peace" Nakia. Your spirit will remain with us.

Nakia will be missed. You were a good person and a great friend. Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God. Rest in peace
