Akeem was part of the Signals Corps as an ACISS. We were in the same regiment in Kingston, ON, the CFJSR Regiment.

He was joyful, love laughing, doing pranks, cheering up his colleagues and always had a positive attitude. Not long after I left the CAF, he started battling some demons.

Even with his mental health problems, he was still trying to cheer everyone up and made everyone happier. He was that kind of guy. He was loved by everyone around him.

In the end, his demons took over and he lost his battle with them.

He left too soon and he will always be remembered.
