Ghearadi Malachi Gaston, was born on August 17, 1996, in Columbus, Ohio to Kenneth Gaston & Priscilla Thomas.
Ghearadi was baptized at an early age by Pastor Paul Forney, Maynard Ave Baptist Church, where he sung in the youth choir, attended Sunday School and participated in many other youth programs at the church. He attended Columbus Public Schools and was also a Boy Scout. His love for music gave him a talent that whatever instrument he picked up he eventually taught himself to play it.
Ghearadi later received a certificate as a certified welder, which in later years came in handy for his business. In 2020, after being encouraged by his grandfather in-law, he made one of his biggest dreams come true, Ghearadi became an entrepreneur, he started his own business “Gaston’s Handyman Services LLC”. He was very successful, sometimes he had more jobs than he had time to get done; but Ghearadi being Ghearadi, he would find a way to get it done.
On March 13, 2013, Ghearadi met the love of his life, Cierah Gilbert, who on October 3, 2016 became his wife. From this union they were blessed with 3 children, Elijah, Aubree and Felix. Ghearadi loved spending time with his family and encouraging others to coupe with life and becoming all they could be in this world.
