Oakes, Domico 7/22/1971 - 9/9/2017 Muskegon, Michigan In our Lord's Infinite love and wisdom, He called to rest Mr. Domico T. Oakes, on Saturday September 9th, 2017. He made his transition peacefully at home. Domico was born July 22, 1971 to his parents Jerry L. and Marion A. Oakes, in Muskegon, MI. Domico was the "Baby" child of the ten children. Domico accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age. He was a lifelong member at the Tabernacle Church of God, founded by his father the late great Bishop Jerry L. Oakes. He received his formal education through Reeths-Puffer Schools where he graduated in 1990. He went on to further his education attending Devry Institute of Technology in Columbus, OH. On May 31, 1998, he married the love of his life, Tasha Bibbs. To this union three sons were born and blended with his four daughters. Domico was employed at Trendway in Holland, MI until his health impeded his ability to work. He was a barber, music producer, entrepreneur, gardener, and motivational speaker. Domico's character of entrepreneurship led him to launch multiple endeavors including Fist Full of Dollars Productions, Love of a Rose, Sonde', and his most passionate expression of hope to all, PRAY TODAY. Make no mistake, Domico was quite the entertainer. His comical and amusing performances made him the life of any party. Domico will be missed dearly, but will be remembered by all who knew and loved him. To know Domico, was to love Domico! He leaves to cherish in his memory; his loving and devoted wife, Tasha Oakes; children; LaMitria Oakes (Atlanta, GA), Cheltrese Dixon (Muskegon, MI), D'Maria Oakes (Grand Rapids, MI), Travell Oakes (Muskegon, MI), Camaryia Williams (Muskegon, MI), Tyreese Oakes (Muskegon, MI), and Tamareon Oakes (Muskegon, MI); nine grandchildren; mother, Marion A.

Dear Tasha, Mother Oakes & family, my heart breaks for you during this time of loss. I was so sorry to hear of Meekie's passing, but I know Eddie was waiting with open arms along with Paul and Daddy to welcome him. I have fond memories of my brother-in-law, always with a smile on his face and oh, how he made me laugh. I think of you all and will keep you in my prayers. I'm so sorry I havent been around since I moved back from the South, but I did get to see Domico at my grandsons basketball game. He prayed for me and I was so touched by his encoraging words. But thats the kind of person he was. God Bless you with his comfort and strength.

Domico leaves a legacy that most of us only wish we could. In 5th grade, someone told me that Domico wanted to beat me up, and I was scared out of my MIND! Little did I know the real battles he was fighting at such a young age. Little did I know the gentleman he would grow into and the light he would shine upon the world. You will be missed, Domico, but you will live on in those you have touched so profoundly.
