De'Shawn Fontae Gott was born to DeAngelo and Danyelle Gott on January 4, 1997. De'Shawn went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at the early age of "21", in the presence of his big brother, Deonte Gott.
De'Shawn was so happy to finally be allowed to go to the casino where he played in the "High Rollers" Black Jack. De'Shawn was an aspiring rap artist that wrote his own music using metaphors that were astounding. On De'Shawn's 21st birthday he went to get his chain out and recorded his video, "Black Jack 21", that has gone viral on Youtube.
De'Shawn accepted the Lord at an early age and was a member of Greater St. Mary's Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Robert W. Lyons Sr.
De'Shawn deeply loved his son. He referred to him as his best friend. He was so excited about being a father. He also encouraged his little brother and his friends to be the best that they could be.
