The Reyes Family is mourning the passing of Father Reyes

06/10/05
By: Jorge Garifuna
We regret to inform you that Father Reyes has passed away on Friday, June 10, 2005 in Dangriga, Belize.

For the few that may not be aware, Father Reyes, was my grand-father from my father’s side of the family. He was the son of Narciso Reyes, which was also the father of Marcelina Reyes, mother of Ruben Reyes, which is the father of Jorge Garifuna.

Below is a symbolic demonstration of the relationship:

Narciso Reyes
o Father of:
o Father Reyes
o Marcelina Reyes
    Mother of:
     • Ruben Reyes
       o Father of:
          Jorge Garifuna

Father Reyes was one of the few Garifuna priests that supported whole-heartedly many positive Garifuna functions. When I first visited Belize in April of 2003, Father Reyes, was the one that conducted the Garifuna mass for the April 12th, Garifuna Day of that year.

I believe that one of the last Garifuna weddings that he conducted, was the great wedding of his nephew, Ruben Reyes, that took place in Los Angeles, California on October 23, 2004. This was also the last time that I saw him in person.
I will sure miss Father Reyes. I will remember him as a man who always provided a great advice when you needed it the most. I’m sure that those that knew him, will remember him for the great impacts that he has had on the many lives that had an ear open to listen to him.

May Father Reyes’s soul, rest in peace.
