Ali Rafiq Obituary, Death Cause – The news about my friend Ali Rafiq was waiting for me to read when I got up, and I saw that someone had placed it there for me to read. This individual had a lot of connections in St. Louis, as evidenced by the fact that practically everyone I spoke to there was familiar with him and his friends. Incredible talent both in front of and behind the camera, as well as a one-of-a-kind eye for detail.
Incredible talent both in front of and behind the camera. Unbelievably talented individuals both in front of and behind the camera. He exhibited an enormous level of support for the scene, and anytime his people needed his assistance, he was always there for them. He was also quite involved in the scene. We have known one other for a considerable length of time, but in the recent months, as a result of the increased amount of time that we have spent together, we have developed into really good friends.
This is a result of the increasing amount of time that we’ve spent working together on recent projects. My heart breaks not only for him but also for all of his friends and family members who are going through this with him. Gentleman, you really need to slow down and relax. I’m going to be musing on you quite a bit over the next few days. Damn When we were both working at the Olive Garden restaurant in Bridgeton in the late 1990s, that’s when I initially met this person for the first time.
We were both present at the moment in question. My entire being is a mess right now, and I can’t even begin to explain why. Today is the day that we say our final farewell to a wonderful person who has represented St. Louis. Nobody else will ever be able to fill the void that he is creating in our hearts; the void can only be filled by him. He is the only one who can do it. My stomach is turning in knots every time I think about this one.
Mahf, please know that I am thinking about you and sending you lots of love and hugs at this time. RIP Ali Rafiq. Since I first started working as a DJ, I have had the opportunity to interact with many wonderful people. When I was just starting out, we met at Harry’s nightclub many years ago and immediately hit it off from the time we shook hands. It was always a lot of fun chatting with you about other things, like music and photography, and just goofing around in general.
I simply cannot get myself to believe that. This one really stings. Gone way too soon
