Deonte Fleming Obituary

Deonte Louis Fleming, affectionately known as “Tay”, was the first of twins born to Latonya Fleming and Eric Kent Cooper on September 25, 1996, in Chicago, Illinois. Deonte and his brother, Deandre, were adopted and raised by their aunt – Carol Cooper. Carol raised them in a loving, caring home and instilled strong Christian values in them. Deonte had a lot of love for his family. Deonte graduated from Miles Davis Elementary School and attended Carver Military School. Throughout his life, he had a love for basketball, and his jersey number was always 25. Deonte was a very compassionate and fun-loving person. He loved people and was always the life of the party. He was very protective of his family and his brother, in particular. His famous words were, “I am my brother’s keeper.” Deonte attended Holy Victory Holiness Church, under the leadership of his grandfather, Pastor Willie H. Woodall, where he sang in the choir and was on the usher board. Deonte loved his son, Diantie, and his niece, Devina, with all of his heart. He looked forward to the summer, which was when he would travel with his family. Deonte leaves to celebrate his life: his mom, Carol Cooper; his dad, Eric Kent Cooper; his son, Diantie Fleming; his twin brother, Deandre Fleming; his niece, Devina Fleming; his grandmothers, Willie Mae Woodall and Gloria Jean Fleming; and his great-greatgrandmother, Helen Robinson. He also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
