We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Bates Funeral & Cremation Service
Raheem William Hatter made his grand arrival on July 2, 1997 in Chicago, Illinois weighing 8 pounds 3 ounces to proud parents, Nneka Alexander and Grant Hatter. He was the 6th child out of 8 and what a joy it was for him to be a boy because it was already four girls and one boy before he made his arrival.
Raheem was a very intelligent young man. He loved African American History. He was enrolled in AP classes and graduated with high honors from Englewood High School.
Raheem didn’t have any children, but loved his nieces and nephews as if they were his own. He worked with his brother Grant Hatter at LCV several times. He loved being different. He was very soft spoken and to himself. He loved being with his friends, playing basketball and poetry.
Raheem loved the color green. He loved Ralph Lauren as well. He was very observant, he would sit back and just listen and wouldn’t say anything.
Raheem was strong as a bull; he didn’t let his sickle cell disease win. He was always positive and even taught his siblings how to stay positive during a crisis.
Raheem loved his family dearly. Every time he hugged them it was a tight, meaningful hug.
Raheem was called home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 4:55 a.m.
Raheem’s love and memories will forever be cherished by his parents, Nneka Alexander and Grant Hatter; his siblings, Dhawnaca Alexander, Corshawnda Hatter, Corshana Hatter, Grant Hatter, Jr., Daneka Hatter, Varsharee Alexander and Varshnneka Bibbs and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
Raheem will truly be missed!
