ROUND O – Mr. Reginald Wallace Smoak Sr., affectionately known by many as “Reggie”, age 61, entered into rest surrounded by his loving family Friday afternoon, January 22, 2016, at his home on Round O Road in Round O while under the care of Agape Hospice.
Funeral services were conducted 2 o’clock Monday afternoon, January 25, 2016, from The Brice W. Herndon and Sons Funeral Chapel, Walterboro. Interment followed in Kinsey Cemetery.
Born December 3, 1954, in Colleton County, South Carolina, he was a son of the late John Mouzon Smoak, Sr. and the late Mamie Lou Colson Smoak. Reggie has been employed by CSX Railroad as well as Wildwood Landscaping; however, his greatest love and vocation in life was long distance hauling. Prior to owning his own operation, he was a professional long distance driver for Schneider National. He most of all loved his Red Peterbuilt truck. He was raised in the family church, Bethlehem Baptist Church in Round O and was also a member of Nova Church in Walterboro. He was active at Nova Church especially enjoying Quinton Mills’ sermons. Another great love in his life was motor sport racing, he was a Saturday night icon at the Summerville Speedway and has spent countless hours working and rebuilding his Camaro Race Car. Other than the devotion he possessed for his family whom he centered his life around, he will be fondly remembered for his passion of old time westerns, “Bonanza” and “Gunsmoke”.
