Graduate of Harlem High School class of 1994. Served his country proudly in the United States Marines. Reggie was formerly employed at Gunnite. United in marriage to Dawn Bonner on August 2, 2021 in Las Vegas, NV. Member of Deliverers Crusaders Church, and RAMP. Reggie's faith was very important to him. He accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and lived his life with integrity and kindness. His laugh could fill up a room, and his sense of humor and jokester spirit brought joy to those who loved him. Reggie was positive and uplifting all the time, even when he struggled with his own personal health issues. He never let disappointment or challenge bring him down. His constant refrain was, "Wegotdis". He was a published author of the book, "Can We Stop and Save This Marriage?" He enjoyed playing card and computer games. His loving presence is greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
