“He wasn’t just another thug as people would like to assume. He was always the first one to lend a hand, and always there for advice or just to talk,” Potts told Global News.

“My parents would like people to know he was not a hateful person that he made some wrong choices in life but he was still the same man inside. He wanted to make something of his life and now he will never get the chance to become a father or watch his nieces and nephews grow up.”
