Shawn Joseph, Sr. Obituary

R E F L E C T I O N O F L I F E 

Shawn "Kid Trouble" Joseph, born on January 8, 1993, in New Orleans, LA, to Bridjetta Joseph-McCarty and was taken away from his earthly family on October 5, 2023, at the age of 30. Shawn was a selfless person who gave his all to his family and friends, radiating joy with his infectious smile that could brighten the darkest room, creating a sense of safety and warmth for everyone. 

Shawn, leaves behind a legacy cherished by his mother Bridjetta Joseph-McCarty, brothers Ervin McCarty and Dexter Hill, and sisters Shernita Davids, Quiatta Joseph, Ieashia Joseph, Quanita Joseph, Quaneashia McCarty, and Jennifer Hill. His memory is further held dear by his five children: Sharoz Jaeden Joseph (15), Precious Marie Joseph (14), Shawn Troy Joseph Jr. (13), A'miya Faith Joseph (12), and Ma'kayla Sade Joseph (10). Shawn is the beloved nephew of John and Zachary Washington, Consuela Ramsey, Acquanetta Lewis, and Chiquita Washington. 

Sharoz, who held a special place in Shawn's heart as his first pride and joy. Candace Davids later blessed him with four more sources of pride and joy. Together, they created a legacy of love and cherished memories. Although their paths diverged, their enduring friendship and love remained steadfast. 

He also leaves behind six nieces Sherneashia, Teiona, T’Erica, Mariah, Princess and Quiatta and six nephews: Qwontrell, Justin, Jacarie, Jahlil, Josiah, and Jeremiah all of whom he loved and cherished deeply. Shawn's passing is preceded by his uncle Shawn Troy Washington, grandmother Agnes Washington, great aunt Joyce Clark, and great uncle Tyrone Joseph. 

In his remarkable journey, Shawn showcased unparalleled self-taught talents, excelling in diverse fields such as cutting hair, writing, rapping, and handiwork around the house. Despite life's challenges, he possessed a unique gift to transform negatives into positives, uplifting those around him. Even during his time at a Military Academy meant for discipline, Shawn rose above, becoming the squad leader by surpassing course standards. 

Choosing family first, Shawn prioritized raising his children, interrupting his education temporarily, only to return and earn his high school diploma. Embracing Christ at 17, he was baptized at The Rock of Austin. Though he departed early, Shawn's spirit lives on in our hearts, in the laughter of his children, and the echoes of his voice through his music. He will be dearly missed, but his memory will endure through the countless cherished moments we shared.
