On February 1, 2021 our Lord called to home Reginald C. Colbert the last of nine children born to George and Martha Colbert. Born on October 17, 1926, Reginald was raised in Washington DC and attended and graduated from Armstrong High School class of 1945. He also attended American University for 2 years. After graduating from high school Reginald joined the military and served his country to return home and was married for 32 years to his first love Louella Colbert and the mother of his only two children, Stanton and Stephanie. He return to government service as a civil servant worker with the Department of Defense were he retired. He was a active member of Shiloh Baptist Church of Washington DC. He was also an active member of Harmony Lodge of Washington DC Free Masons, Mecca Temple No. 10 and the Shriners. When I say that Reginald was a people person that would be considered to be an understatement. Reginald could charm anybody and everybody. His personality was infectious. He took pride in everything he did. when I say “clean as a yard dog” I meant it. Reginald knew that being dressed to impress meant everything. Having to share clothes with three brothers when growing up was something that he always remember so whatever he wanted when it came to attire he got it and price was not a problem.

Where ever he traveled he was the life of the party. He loved to meet people and start new endeavors, from selling World Book, to selling Mary Kay cosmetics. He went on to work in retail which was right his alley , with his flair for style. When he moved to Virginia from Washington he worked for several retail stores. Thalihimer, Hecht, Profits and Dillards. This gave him the opportunity to showcase his flair for fashion.

Upon making the move to Virginia he met and married again. Eula and Reginald were married for 37 years and moved to Richmond where they lived until their passing. Reginald love of family was first, his grandchildren and his family especially his nieces and nephews were his priority.

Reginald was proceeded in death by his wife Eula and his son Stanton R. Colbert. He is survived by his daughter Stephanie Colbert-Lewis, five grandchildren Stanton Reginald Colbert II, Justin Avery Hayden, Kirsten Nicole Lewis, Dylan Charles Lewis, Ricky Charles Lewis Jr. two granddaughter- in- law, Valerie Colbert, Heather Hayden, and two great grand daughters Olivia Faith Colbert and Autumn Olivia Lewis. Reginald also leaves to mourn him many loving nieces, nephews and friends.
