Mr. Reginald Leonard Smith, affectionately known as "Fat Cat," passed away peacefully on October 21, 2023, in his beloved hometown of St. Louis, MO. Born on April 29, 1959, in St. Louis, he was a true son of the city, leaving an indelible mark on the community he loved. His playful nickname, "Fat Cat," was a reminder of his love for shooting marbles as a child, a game that taught him precision, patience, and the joy of simple pleasures.
Reginald was preceded in death by his parents, John and Dorothy Smith, who raised him with a strong sense of community and a knack for fixing things. He was a proud product of St. Louis Public Schools, where he developed a strong foundation that guided him throughout his life. He later attended Central High School, where he was known for his friendly demeanor and kind heart.
After his schooling, Reginald found his calling as a Handyman. His work across the city not only showcased his skill and dedication but also his inherent kindness. He was not merely a Handyman, but a friend to all he served. He was always ready to lend a hand, whether it was fixing a leaky faucet or helping a neighbor move furniture. His dedication to his work was only surpassed by his commitment to his family and friends.
Reginald loved and lived to travel, exploring new places, and experiencing new cultures. His adventures were not confined to foreign lands; he also loved shopping, always on the hunt for something unique or unusual. Yet, despite his travels, he always found comfort in his work, fixing things, and making them better. His hands were rarely idle, and his mind was always keen to solve problems.
Reginald is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Carolyn, who was his rock and confidante throughout their life together. His legacy also lives on in his cherished daughter, Tiffany, who has inherited his spirit of kindness and his love for life. His grandchildren, in-laws, nieces, and nephews will also remember him fondly as the jovial and loving 'Fat Cat,' who was always there for them.
Reginald 'Fat Cat' Smith will be deeply missed, but his legacy will live on. His life was a testament to the power of kindness, the joy of exploration, and the beauty of friendship. As we say goodbye, we remember him not with sadness, but with gratitude for the time we shared and the memories we created. Thank you, Fat Cat, for a life well-lived, a life well-loved.
