On January 10, 1983, a king was born. Rafeal Darnell Hale was born in Buffalo, New York to Sonya Hale and Lester Lee.
Rafeal who was affectionately known as "KB"' was educated in the Buffalo Public School System and attended Seneca Vocational High School.
KB loved to dress to impress, loved money, and most importantly his family. He had a smile that was sure to brighten any room and quick to say a one-liner that would surely have you laughing.
If only we all were able to hear him say, "Talk to me nice," or "We're in this together", one more time...KB, you may have left this earth, but you have not and will never leave our hearts.
Rafeal leaves to cherish and mourn his memory his loving mother Sonya Hale and father Lester Lee; two sisters Talandra Hale and Passion Patterson; two brothers Terrelle Hale and Dewayne Patterson; three beautiful children Nicole "Coco" Williams Hale, Janaye Hale, and Rafeal D. Hale Jr.; seven nieces and nephews that he held near and dear to his heart, Tay Tay, Tally, Tramya, Brandon, Vay Vay, Maliyah, and Alinah P.; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Family will receive friends Wednesday, August 22, 2018, 11am at Brian K Lewis Funeral Homes, 2528 Bailey Ave. Funeral to follow at 12 noon.
