Terence C. Hooper Jr. was born July 30, 1991 to Janice and Terence C. Hooper Sr. of Harlem, New York City, NY. He worked for the MTA as a Traffic Checker, MaBSTOA, for 7 years. Terence was affectionately known as “Boi” to his family and friends and “UNCLE” coined by his eldest nieces Ja’nia and Kam’ren. On December 20, 2020, he was called home at the age of 29.
Terence was a charismatic, loving, thoughtful and devoted son, brother and uncle. He was known for his life of the party energy. He loved to dance, laugh and crack jokes. However, as much as he loved to make people laugh he was also the sound voice of reason and source of useful advice. Terence was a protector and he took the role seriously when it came down to his family, especially when it pertained to his nieces and nephews.
Terence marched to the beat of his own drum. He prided himself in his eclectic taste in gaming, movies, music, clothes and even his hairstyles. He was a creative mind and a free thinker. His creativity also manifested on paper with his artwork that he shared with a select few.
He is survived by his parents, sisters Shanta, Kimberly, Terri-Nikole, Anaijah, brother Alphonso, Godbrothers Kevin and Keifer, great grandmother Evelyn, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, a host of cousins, and many close friends, some of which he grew so close he referred to them as brothers.
