Cavelle Edward Tate, 39, of Shorewood, IL made his transition home to be with the Lord on September 2, 2019 as a result of recent health issues.

Cavelle started as a young man playing the drums and played many years for his church, Brown Chapel AME, was a member of CD Small Choir and YPD (Youth Ministry). Velle also had a great love for dancing. Boy could this dude step! He would take the floor and say “Ya’ll don’t know nothing, let me show you a little something.” He would make you step back and he would do his dance.
