WARREN – Rakeem DeShawn Evans left this life on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, at the age of 30.

He was born on December 6, 1991 to Sandy ReShawn Thomas and Kimyatta Renee Evans, both of Warren.

Although the hearts of his loved ones are breaking, everyone who knew Rakeem couldn’t help but be swayed by his constant positive energy and infectious optimism.

Rakeem loved basketball and enjoyed playing it as well as talking trash to defend his favorite teams and NBA players. He was also a lover of gospel music and expressed this love of music as a member of the Warren City Wide Youth Choir.

He is survived by his wife, Kayla Mach-Evans; daughter, Aveah Mach; son, John Mach; father, Sandy Thomas; brother, Emmanuel Dawkins; sisters, Nailah Thomas, Kamilah Thomas and Akilah Thomas; uncle, Ted Williams; aunt, Tammy Miller; grandma, Sheila Evans; and a host of other aunts, uncles and cousins, including his cousin, Riyon Oliver, with whom he was particularly close.

Rakeem was predeceased by his devoted mother, Kimyatta Evans; and grandmother, Marjorie R. Thomas.

A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, March 26, 2022 at Agape Assembly Church, 426 Nevada St. SW, Warren.
