Asaad “Saadi” D’Maro Brown, 31, of Las Vegas, NV, formerly of Moberly, MO passed away and his big beautiful spirit ascended on Sunday, April 10, 2022. He was born June 15, 1990 in Moberly to Alphonso and Lisa (Gaye) Logan-Brown.
Saadi graduated in 2008 from Moberly Senior High School where he was the light in every room that he entered. During his tenure he participated in the band where he followed the footsteps of his grandpa Kenny by developing into a very talented trumpet player. He was a member of the student group “The M.O.B.” which was a group designed to bring fun and energy to all the High School sporting events. Fun and energy which were two things that came very natural to Saadi.
As a young adult, his interest seemed to expand into areas all his own. Saadi had a love for jewelry, dressing “fly and looking good”, riding his motorcycle, traveling, tattoos and cars, but nothing brought him more joy than gaming and spending time with his niece, aka Niece Daughter, Aaliyah. In the summer you could find Saadi spending all day with Aaliyah playing videos games, making Snap Chats, TikToks and just having fun.
Saadi began to travel and experience a lifestyle that would take him far from his Moberly, Missouri roots. Along with traveling to most major cities in the U.S., his journeys have taken him from St. Joseph MO to Atlanta GA, back to Columbia MO and would eventually land him in a city that matched his fun and energy, Las Vegas, NV.
In 2016 Saadi moved to Las Vegas and began to make his mark on the city immediately. His history of hard work made his transition into operating and supervising his own crew at a waste management company seamless. He is loved by his crew, the management team and other staff members. Even though he was a hard worker, he was the epitome of “work hard, play harder.” In his time off, Saadi would randomly go to restaurants just to “try it”, meet with friends at the world-famous Las Vegas strip and spend quality time with is girlfriend of four years, Nancy. Nancy’s love for Saadi introduced a new passion for himself which included health and fitness. During his time in Las Vegas, Saadi worked vigorously to transform his body and mindset which influenced so many individuals around him.
Saadi captured so many hearts with his infectious smile. He was a free spirit to the core and riding his motorcycle was when he felt the freest. He lived his life for the moment and lived each day with a seize the day mentality.
Growing up in the church, Second Baptist Church in his hometown of Moberly, Saadi would resort back to that faith by telling all that were closest to him “God’s got me” in everything I do.
Well Saadi, you are right, God does have you now.
There is nothing in the world that will ever compare to the light that Saadi brought to our lives.
Saadi leaves behind to honor his memory his parents, Alphonso and Lisa Brown, his brother, Aaron Holman(Christine), his only niece, Aaliyah Holman, his “G-Ma” Patricia Logan, the love of his life, Nancy Bejarano, his aunts Debra Tucker(Lewis), Darcel Lang(Smiley), his uncle, Dmitri Logan(Brenda). Although Saadi didn’t have children of his own, these children, Aaliyah, Roman, Adrian and Julian,, dear to his heart, allowed him to experience fatherhood.
On his father’s side Saadi has two surviving brothers, Tony Belford and Alphonso Brown Jr. and his aunt Dionne O’Neal.
He also leaves to cherish his memory great aunts, great uncles, cousins and and abundance of friends.
Saadi was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Kenneth Logan, his paternal grandmother Ernestine Brown, his uncle Victor(Tony)Logan and his cousin, Marlin Logan.
Words of comfort and support were shared with the family in the Cater Funeral Home Chapel. Funeral services honoring and celebrating Saadi's life followed.
