God Bless Reggie, Tammy, and their family. Even though I only had three years to really know Reggie (8-10th grades), he was a very important friend of mine during my family's stay in Franklin. My mother, to this day, talks about how fine a person Reggie was. He even came to see us off when we moved. He was that kind of high-character person. Reggie and Tammy even drove all the way to Alabama to visit and meet my family many years ago. As a youth, it will not surprise you that Reggie was a leader and twice as smart as the rest of us! More important, he always stood for right thing and was a friend to us all. As I read about Reggie's accomplishments and the friendships he made over the years, I am not surprised. He touched many people. I am so glad I had the honor of knowing him. Reggie led a Godly, enriched life, one to be admired! God Bless! Willy Hill

Reggie and Donald were two of the first guys that I ever met in Franklin. I was impressed by them both and, although we were not close friends, I have been proud to have known Reggie and have counted him as a good man and I’ve always held him in high regard. My heart breaks for his family and I wish you all the comfort that only Good can give.

Dear Holland Family,
I am truly so sorry to hear about the loss of Reggie. I can only imagine how difficult this time is for you all.
I want to share a sweet and funny story about Reggie with you. I was on the track team in high school with Tiffany, at an away match. I was injured at the time so I was unable to compete. Anyone who saw or knew me in high school probably knew I was awkward and gangly. I was walking behind the bleachers when a group of boys came up and started harassing me. I quickly returned to my seat with the parents and other athletes. Reggie heard me saying they had bothered me and asked me what happened. When I told him he said ok with his big smile, we are going to handle this. He walked me over to the group of boys and had me stand a few feet away. I have no idea what he said but a few seconds later I received an apology. When I asked him what he said he simply stated he gave them the opportunity to apologize. He was of course all smiles and made me feel like I could stand up for myself. He stood up for me when I didn’t know how to stand up for myself. I am truly thankful to have known such a kind, happy and good man.
I’m sure my story is one of thousands about your husband and father. It meant a lot to me then and still does now. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you all.

My sincerest condolences to the family in regards to this great loss. I always enjoyed talking with Reggie and I know that he was a key person here in Macon County for many years. He will be missed. I had the honor and privelege to coach his fine son and his wonderful daughter at FHS. What great kids. I share in mourning at this time for their wonderful father. May our God put his arms around the family and provide strength and peace at this time.
