OBITUARY of

Thomas “Saleem” Kee, Jr.

 

Thomas “Saleem” Kee, Jr. was the son of Thomas Kee, Sr. (predeceased) and Sarah Wiley Kee, and was born on August 10, 1953, in Lawndale, North Carolina.

Saleem attended elementary, middle, and high school in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1971 where he served his country until his Honorable discharge in 1973. In the following years, he was employed as a limousine driver.

On September 30, 1974, he married Fay Wyman, and from that union, they had a daughter—Tamara Kee-Davis; and years following their separation, he had a son, Kareem Jackson.

 

Saleem began practicing Islam after being introduced to Islam by William Rabb.

Saleem had a quiet yet magnetic, positive, and fun-loving demeanor. His smile would light up a room.

Saleem will be greatly missed and memories of him will forever remain in the hearts of his loved ones.  He is survived by his mother, Sarah Wiley Kee (NJ); his daughter, Tamara Kee-Davis (Leroy Davis) (GA); his son Kareem Jackson (NJ); his six sisters: Shirley Walton (Thomas Walton-predeceased) (NC); Kathleen Kee Rabb (William Rabb-predeceased) (NJ); Gwendolyn Kee (NJ); Brenda Kee Brown (Richard Brown) (NJ); Marilyn Denise Kee Arnold (Eric Arnold) (GA); and Kim Kee Washington (NJ); his six Grandchildren: Myron Kee Davis, Laylah Davis, Christopher Jordan, Monaishah Coles, Hajjah Jackson, and Wazir Jackson; his three nieces: Colleen Allison, Latoya Kenner Farmer, and Laqueta Washington; his six nephews: Leon Wiley, Tyshaon Davis, Amir Crawford (Special nephew), Richard Brown, Nasin Brown and Husain Williams (predeceased); a host of Great grandnieces & nephews, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Friends; and a special friend, Hassen Abdellah.
