Willie L. Honable Jr
Jul 22, 1978 - Mar 6, 2016
Willie L. Honable, Jr. (known to his friends and associates as Will or Kaos) was born on July 22, 1978 in Stockton, CA and passed away on March 6, 2016 in Katy, TX. He is preceded in death by his son, Darian Honable. He is survived by his loving mother, Ann Melton and devoted stepfather Greg Dutka; his cherished son Darius Phoenix Griffin-Honable; his adoring sisters Ajoke Kokodoko, Carmel Robinson (Ricky), Tabia Lee (Robert), and Nina Isis; special nephews Foli and Wolfgang, and precious niece Lucia.
Will graduated from Tokay High School and completed an apprenticeship in furniture upholstery. He pursued his passion for music and worked as a CEO for Bare Face Records. He was an aspiring hip hop artist with a golden tongue. He thought fast and on his feet, loved to make people laugh, and he engaged people from coast to coast as he chased his dream. He fearlessly reached across color lines, artistic lines, clique lines, and all artificial boundaries to engage with people from all walks of life. In January 2016, with the support of his family, he moved to Katy, Texas to open a second recording studio.
He rapped and wrote about what he saw firsthand. He was a gracious host that welcomed people into his circle, and would not hesitate to help a friend in need. He was an avid gamer that surrounded himself with beautiful things—but he did not define himself by those things. He really was one in a million.
Will reminded us to enjoy every moment and the richness that life has to offer. He loved to fish and go out on the water in his boat. He was a master chef that could barbecue almost anything to perfection. He cooked fried chicken so moist and juicy—covered in a batter so crispy and flaky—that it brought tears to Colonel Sander’s eyes.
He was widely known for his lucky hand in games of chance and gambling. He loved to travel and meet new people. He was also a health enthusiast that worked out on a daily basis.
He was a man of second chances for himself and for others, a gentleman’s gentleman. He thought big, when others thought small. His memory will live on in the host of special aunts and uncles, relatives, legion of friends and associates whose lives he touched in many ways.
