Amari went by many names given by various family and friends. To many he was known as the "best kid ever" due to his respectful, well mannered, demeanor. He had an unique personality and was very literal and straight-forward, so if you asked him a question, you had better be prepared for the answer.
Amari was a compassionate young man who loved to read, but also enjoyed his fair share of video games. He was an excellent student with the dedication to perform well on his own but that didn't stop his MOM from providing the extra push.
Amari was an amazing son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.
He leaves to cherish his wonderful memories: his parents; Nikki and Demell Smith; grandmother Janice Brumfield; Grandfather Raymond (Shari) Williams, grandfather Cary (Veta) Smith' grandmother Jessie Robertson, godparents; Darren (Sonya) Brumfield and a host of uncles, aunts. cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather William Robertson
