Dalterius "Smokey" Shorter was a very happy go lucky individual. He loved to laugh and thought of himself as the family protector. He was a family oriented person but the irony is if he didn't know you he would barely whisper to you. He was called, the little bitty baby by his Mother. He loved working and "making his own money". He loved to come home settle down and play his game while listening to music with his friends. He loved to try new foods and of course tattoos. He was in awe and instantly felt in love with his Son, Kyro Legend Shorter who was born on August 17, 2023. He was looking forward to raising his son and being there for him as a father should! Smokey, "our little bitty baby", was LOVE and HE WAS LOVED!
