It is with deep sorrow that I pass on the information that CVO member Taalibdin Shabazz has passed away. Taalibdin was a past member of the CVO Executive Committee. He was a founder of the Muslim American Veterans Association, Chapter 2 and was its long time representative to CVO. Taalibdin served with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. He was a long standing pioneer and supporter of the Mosque Cares Ministry of Imam W.D. Mohammed.
Taalibdin always seemed happy and always had a good word for you. He was full of fun and often joked. He was a kind and gentle man. He was dedicated to serving his faith and serving veterans. He was a regular at CVO meetings until his health prevented it and then always maintained MAVA membership in CVO and kept in touch. He will be sorely missed.
Visitation will be at 11:00 AM and Janazah Salat at 12:00 PM,. Thursday, August 6, 2020 at:
