Obituary for REGINALD L. LEONARD

Reginald Lamont Leonard, affectionately known as “Fry” was born in Annapolis, Maryland on September 4, 1977. The second child born to Jane Leonard. Reggie grew up in Tracy’s Landing, Maryland. He transitioned to his new address, on Sunday September 12, 2021, at Drury Ball Park doing what he loved the most, second to his children and family; playing baseball.

At a young age Reggie became a member of Carter’s United Methodist Church. He knew that Jesus Christ is Lord and he lived a life of faith. He trusted God’s ability to show up and handle any situation or circumstance in life without depending on his own ability. He encouraged and helped many to grow in their faith. Reggie was known to share uplifting scriptures or Bible reading challenges. He always worked toward building a stronger spiritual foundation.

Reggie received his education in the Anne Arundel County Public School System. A 1995 graduate of Southern High School, he matriculated to Morgan State University. Reggie was a proud Alum of this HBCU graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Management. You would often find him wearing his Morgan gear and attending school functions. Homecoming was one of his favorite times of the year. During his tenure at Morgan, he formed a brotherhood and unbreakable bond with several great men, known as “5-0-3”. To date, these men operate on the principles of God, Family, Perseverance and Brotherhood.

Upon his graduation, Reggie began his professional career at Enterprise Car Rental Services. He was currently employed with Bowhead Operations and Maintenance Solutions as a Warehouse Specialist. His leadership and staff always held him in the highest regards, and would applaud his work ethics and character.

DJ, comedian, coach, son, brother, uncle, co-parent, and friend, Reggie had many titles and roles. However, nothing was more important than the role of being a Dad. In 2004, Reggie welcomed his first daughter, India Janae into his world. The world watched Reggie and India grow together and gleamed with pride. In 2012, Reggie’s immediate family was made complete with the birth of his daughter, London Rane. Equally proud and equally loved, he allowed us to watch the journey of being a “Girl Dad”. He vowed to be everything the girls would need and to guide, nurture and support their growth all the days of his life. The way he cared for and showered them with his love is present here today. He was a devoted Dad and cherished every moment that he spent with his children.

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Reggie. He had an uncanny ability to find happiness in his daily activities and could be often found at a local gym, track or sporting event. As a young child Reggie developed a passion for sports, specifically baseball. He loved going to the baseball games at Geno’s Ball Field and would play ball against the kids from the opposing team. When he became an adult, he joined several baseball teams and was on a mission to earn a Championship. Reggie previously played ball for the Tracey’s Twins and was currently a multi team player for both the Drury Giants and Aberdeen Braves. In addition to playing, he had a passion for teaching the game while developing his own craft. He was often found at the batting cage, coaching and mentoring children. His focus wasn’t only on the game but he demanded excellence in sportsmanship, teamwork, drive and education. Reggie was an avid fan of the Washington Football Team and Baltimore Orioles, where you could find him in attendance with his daughters and friends.

For over ten years, Reggie coached basketball in Belcamp, Maryland. While managing his career, family, and sports schedule, Reggie became a certified basketball official through the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials. He recently began working toward certifications to become a high school basketball referee.

Reggie’s love and catalog of music led him to become a disc jockey. DJ Fry and, most recently, DJ Mo Green were his stage names. Reggie loved to dance and was famous for starting a song and walking away from his table to get on the dance floor. We’re not sure who authorized him to have a mic but once he turned it on, you would buckle up for the music and bonus commentary.

Reggie loved all of his family and friends unconditionally. His infectious personality, love of laughter, fierce loyalty and wisdom will be missed by everyone who was blessed to share a part of his 44 year journey. It is tragically ironic that the number he proudly suited up in for several seasons, would also be the age that God would call him home.

Reggie was predeceased by his grandparents Henry W. and Margaret Elizabeth Gross and uncle, Frederick Turner.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories two daughters, India and London Leonard; bonus son, Demari Samuel; His beloved mother Jane Leonard; two sisters, Michelle Washington (Daniel) and Bridgett Wallace; his “favorite” niece Danielle Washington Seide (Christopher); great niece Nova Seide; two god daughters, Kaiya Creek and Sophia Gross; and a host of cousins, other relatives and many dear friends.

Friendship is essential to your soul, and Reggie was one of the greatest people we were all blessed to know. Reggie’s special friends, Tremayne “Rico” Gross, Marco Easton, Jared Buchanan, Bryan Creek, Corey Contee, Tarell Spriggs, Shanna Brown, Dareyll Wanzer, James Tinsley, and all of the Brothers of 503 will not only mourn his death, but celebrate his life. Because of Reg, strangers became friends and evolved into family. Until We Meet Again, Reg —
One Love..
