Napoleon “Po” Sanchez Williams-Hines was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Stanley “Sweetie” Hines, Jr. and Shannon Hines on May 31, 1994. He departed this earthly life on October 7, 2021.
Po (as those that knew him most called him) was a devoted son, brother, father, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. He knew at a young age the importance of faith and was baptized at the age of nine, as a member of Consolation Baptist Church.
Napoleon was known for his big heart and willingness to give to those that meant the most to him. His easy-going personality pro-vided comfort to those who experienced his presence. Po never met a stranger. One to never complain; instead, he chose to use his voice to spread love and kindness. His movie impressions were one of a kind, and his sense of humor made everyone feel at ease.
Since the age of five, Napoleon has played both basketball and football. Over time his sport of choice was football which he played during his high school career at Shroder Paideia Academy. After high school, Po attended Cincinnati State Technical and Com-munity College studying audiovisual production. He loved to travel, enjoy good food, and make music with his brothers in his spare time. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to start On to the Millions with his brother with the vision to diversify the fashion industry.
He joins his grandmother, Glenda Hines; sister, Shanice Hines; uncles, Ronald “Buster” Hines and Napoleon “Hawk” Williams; and aunt, Chanel Hines.
