Willis Hood, Jr.

    Birth Date: 02/08/1968
    Deceased Date: 12/25/2023

    Willis “Uncle Bobo” Hood Jr was born on February 8, 1968, in Brooklyn, NY, to the late Willis Hood Sr and Mary F Norman. From birth, he was indeed one of a kind. Despite the challenges he faced, he survived. And he continued to do so throughout his life.

    One of his most significant accomplishments was his 25 years devoted to the New York Board of Education. He gained many people who loved, cared for, and supported him. He truly adored his P.S. 36 colleagues and students. His legacy contributes to the memory of the many generations who grew up on Pilling St, Bushwick. To honestly know our uncle is to know he loved himself a good time surrounded by those he loved, with good food, good vibes, and full of laughs. Most of all, he loved to travel. Every opportunity he had in this lifetime to experience something, someone, or somewhere he took with not a second thought. Wille believed and lived by the motto of “living life.”

    On December 25, 2023, at the age of 55, Willie joined in the afterlife with both of his parents, sister Jackie and sister Denise.

    Although he had no biological children, he lived for and left his memory to be carried through his nieces Kizzy, Kesha, Jada, Josie, Azura, and Zuree. Nephews Craig, Donovon, Trey, EJ, Adonis, Tobias, August, and Davian. His best friends are Sonyia, Robin, and Amy—many friends, cousins, and extended family through NY, NC, and Tennessee.
