Mr. Thessalonia Heard, Jr. Obituary

Thessalonia Heard, Jr., affectionately known as Tony, passed away on Friday, February 9, 2024, in Kansas City, MO. He was born in Chicago, IL, to Jennie B. Heard and Thessalonia Heard, Sr. on June 26, 1959.

‍Tony attended Lincoln High School and went on to pursue many of his passions. He attended Columbia School of Broadcasting early on, capitalizing on his love of music and chasing his dream of being a radio DJ. He also worked for many years in the legal field as a paralegal.

Tony’s friends and family remember him as an avid sports fanatic and a walking music encyclopedia. He was also an occasional drummer and a diehard Chiefs fan.

Predeceased by his father, Thessalonia Sr., and mother, Jennie, Tony leaves a legacy of love and laughter. He is survived by his son Shaun Heard and daughter Tamika Brazier, his grandchildren, and his siblings, Vernon and Louis.

‍ ‍Tony's presence will be profoundly missed, but his memory will continue to be a beacon of warmth and joy for all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
