We also knew him as "Mr. Smooth".
Reebop lived his life the way he wanted and how he wanted, never once second guessing himself. He enjoyed lounging around in his favorite pajamas and bathrobe listening to the TV & the best music of his life. There was never a dull moment when Reebop was around. He was always telling us one of his amazing stories or just plainly speaking his mind, either way, he was always amusing. His proudest moment was with his family, nothing gave him more joy than having all his grand kids around him during the Christmas holiday, with Snoopy & Blackie. There was nobody with a heart as big as his during the holiday seasons.
