Kendrick Derrill OliverNovember 17, 1978 ~ November 4, 2020 (age 41)
Kendrick Derrill Oliver, Sr. was born to John Wilson, Sr. and Sandra Oliver on November 17, 1978 in Monroe, Louisiana. He later became a member of Saint Paul Baptist Church in Monroe, Louisiana. He graduated from Neville High School. He obtained his license for carpentry from Louisiana Technical College.
Kendrick, known to his family and friends as Doughboy or Dough, was a fun, loving, and energetic person. He lit up any room he stepped in.
He spent his adult life as a carpenter. But his true passion was music – all aspects of it. He was like a kid in a candy store when he was in the studio.
He was a loyal son, a proud dad, an awesome uncle, the best “lil big brother,” and a true friend to anyone he called a friend.
He departed this life on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, after a lengthy battle of illness. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, maternal grandmother, father, mother, one aunt, one brother, and one brother-in-law.
He leaves to cherish his memories: his only son, Kendrick Oliver, Jr. of Dallas, Texas; a sister, Demetre Oliver-Davis of Monroe, Louisiana; two brothers, Jason Wilson and Cedric Wilson, both of Monroe, Louisiana; his partner in life, Danessa Nimmer of Bastrop, Louisiana; two sisters in life, Loria Pollard (Montrell) and Roshonda Williams (Darius), both of Monroe, Louisiana; five brothers in life, Joseph Pollard of Dallas, Texas; Talvin Eleam of Houston, Texas; and Kerry Black, Jessie Merrells (Karnicka), and Burgies Smith (Tracy), all of Monroe, Louisiana; one God-brother, one God-sister, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and friends.
