It’s with great sadness I share this bit of news…
Patrick “Praverb the Wyse” passed away this week of currently unknown causes. We’re deeply saddened for his family. He was a great man who loved his family and especially his young son. He was a loving husband to his wife Vanessa. The photo included with this post shows just how much he cared for his family.
One of the greatest qualities about Praverb was has passion for selflessly serving others. He and I were able to work on a few things together through the years. We shared many (too many to count) challenging conversations that no doubt pushed both of us on towards excellence. It was a blessing to see his work touch so many people as he shared useful tips and strategies on how to further ones music career. While he could have used that time for himself to push his own music, he instead chose to give to others first.
We’d recently started talking about doing new music and possibly helping get his album out via ILLECT Recordings. I’m sad we’ll never get to do that but plan to honor his legacy in others ways.
The most important thing to note is that he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. It undoubtedly shaped his approach and character. So while I am sad at his passing, I can rejoice knowing that he’s in heaven with his Lord.
Please join us in praying for his family and friends during this time. If there are ways for us to show love to his family, we’ll update this post. Feel free to add your thoughts and condolences here on this post.
In closing, we’ll greatly miss this man. Patrick was such a great guy and I’m glad to have crossed paths with him. We love you brother!
