Reggie L. Lovett, Jr.

June 3, 1999 ~ September 13, 2022 (age 23)


Our beloved sweet Reggie affectionately known as “Lil Reggie” was born on June 3rd, 1999 in Alachua County. He moved to Tampa, FL where he began his football journey and learned to play the game well.  He thenmoved back to Gainesville, FL, and continued to excel to a higher level of football. He was known for his achievements in the game. Reggie was a graduate of SIATech.  During this journey through life, he managed to overcome many hurdles and obstacles that stood in his way. Reggie loved all his family and lived life to the fullest.He was strong but loving. He would make you laugh even when you were mad at the world or even him. He was a big teddy bear that would help anyone in need. As soon as he entered the room, his light would shine and brighten everything and everyone up. Reggie’s smile made the sun look weak. He will be missed by his family, friends and all that knew him for the positive energy he brought to every path he crossed.


He passed away on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 in the early morning on his way to work. Our Lord and Savior called him home and expanded his wings for one last ride into the beautiful gates.


He was proceeded in death by his paternal great grandmother, Joan Wiley.


He leaves to cherish his life, legacy, and many memories: His children, Reggie Lavone Lovett, III, Halo Lovett, RiyanLovett, and Rae’Lynn Lovett; his mom, Katrina Bass, and father, Reggie Lavone Lovett, Sr.; his brother, Travone Lovett; his sisters, Regginae Lovett and T’YannaRobinson; his maternal grandmother, Karen Locicero; paternal grandmother, Patsy Lovett; paternal grandfather, Reuben Lovett; his uncles, Fredrick Wiley, Sr. and Eric Lovett; aunt, Arielle Castilo; his fiancé Kyra Penny and a host of cousins, aunts, uncles, and sorrowing friends.
