September 11, 1970 - July 18, 2015
Jose Francisco Reyes, Jr.


On Saturday, July 18, 2015 the world lost a great man. Jose Francisco Reyes Jr. (Frank) was taken to heaven, he was 44 years young.

Frank was born on September 11, 1970 in Elyria, Ohio to Adela & Dr. Francisco Reyes. He graduated from Penn State University and received his masters in Marketing and Business Administration from Frostburg State University. He had a love for knowledge and intellect, and his ability to talk to anyone about anything was a remarkable quality. Frank was a kind, caring, and gentle man. He was a loving son, brother and Tio. Frank had a love for life, people, and writing. His sense of humor was one of his best qualities and he enjoyed telling jokes and making people laugh. He will be remembered for his love of Karaoke, the Cubs, his contagious laugh, his memorable dance moves and his unconditional willingness to help family and friends. His spirit will live forever amongst his family and friends through stories and memories of “Panchito”. He is now in his final resting place, with God, waiting for his loved ones to join him in a song.

Frank is survived by his parents, Francisco & Adela Reyes, his siblings, Alex & Flavia Reyes of Miami, FL, Gabriel & Jaclyn Reyes of Raleigh, NC, Ana & John Lewis of Miami, FL. Tio Frank will be missed by his nieces & nephew: Myla Reyes, Viviana Reyes, Emme Reyes, Valencia Reyes and his nephew Rocco Reyes. His Donald Duck voice always brought smiles and giggles to the kids.

Services will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at St Mark Catholic Church in Wilmington, NC at 1:00pm.

“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.”

    I just found out about this tragedy. Frank was a good friend in high school and I always enjoyed running in to him at the alumni soccer game and catching up. He had an old soul and was one of the kindest and outgoing men I have ever known. The world is a sadder place without him in it. My sympathies to your family. He will be missed.

    Nos unimos a la familia Reyes Barreto en estos momentos dificiles, llenos de dolor. No existen palabras que conforten cuando se pierde a un hijo o a un hermano; solamente nuestra FE, porque sabemos que Frank ya no sufre y se regocija en los brazos del Señor. Nuestras oraciones por Frank y la familia.
