Our Beloved Karl Lamar Slaughter was born on February 3 1968, and passed away on May 26, 2018 at the age of 50.

Karl Lamar is preceded in death by his Mother Ruth Janet Slaughter-Hay (Grandpa Melvin, CA.), Father Walter Hines, and Sister Cynthia Yvonne Bradford.

He leaves to cherish his memory his loving Daughter Ka’Desha Slaughter, and two grandsons.

Karl Lamar was born in Seattle, and was the fifth child of eight; 2 boys, and 6 girls. Karl always talked lovingly of his one and only Daughter Ka’Desha, and even though they lived miles apart many of his conversations were about her, what she was doing, and what was going on. His love of Basketball was undeniable; playing as a little boy many days at the neighborhood court, at Miller Community Center and as part of Nathan Hale’s High School Team where he graduated in 1986. Karl had an extensive career in the Restaurant and Food Industry showing off his culinary skills. He also worked for, and at all Seattle Sporting Stadium games, and events with a knack for getting to know everyone with that big personality and an easy going demeanor.

Karl is lovingly remembered by his siblings Sheree, Aldo (Cherise), Deedee, Sonja (Donald), Lucina, and Olivia all of Seattle WA.

Also, a host of Nieces and Nephews, Aunts and Uncles, Cousins, extended Family and Friends and dog Jack who loved Uncle!

Karl will be deeply missed!

    I am so saddened to hear about brother Karl. My heart goes out to the family.

    My greatest memory of Karl was his smile. I did not see him often but when I did, he always had such a beautiful smile that was welcoming, sweet and unforgetful.

    Karl you will be missed!!! My thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family.

    With love,
    Nickie Pritchard

    Karl, I will greatly miss seeing you walking in Skyway or in Downtown Seattle. Now you’re in Jehovah’s memory. The Slaughter family has endured much the last year. Continue to trust in Jehovah. Revelation 21:3,4. Luv my cousins.

  • Dee Dee says:

    Many tears have fallen since you left.
    The pain inside trying to suppress
    I don’t ask why, nor do I complain
    Because my love for you will always remain!

    Love you so much Karl!
    ♡ Truly a gem! My Baby Bro!

    To Karl’s family and friends, I’m so sorry that I missed the services I just found out today. My heart is so sad. I worked with Karl at Sneakers for years. He was so young and cute we all loved him. I saw him about 5 years ago then he was telling me all about his wonderful daughter. I tried to get him to work for my restaurant because I know what a wonderful cook he was but of course somebody else needed him more than I did. Again to his family my heart goes out to you God bless him and God bless you
