Frank Reginald Williamson, III

Reflection of Life
Frank Reginald Williamson was born on May 28, 1984 in St. Louis, MO to the union of Frank Anthony Williamson, Jr. and Michelle Williamson. Frank was an only child. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Kenneth Rush, Sr. and Cora Rush; paternal grandparents, Frank H. Williamson, Sr. and Thelma Williamson; uncle, Kenneth Rush, Jr.

Frank accepted Christ in his life at an early age. Frank received his education in St. Louis, Missouri. He was a 2002 graduate of Cleveland NJROTC Academy. Reggie, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, went on to further his education at the Historically Black Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO. In 2009, Reggie graduated from Lincoln University with a bachelor degree in Marketing. While walking the campus of Lincoln University, Reggie realized the importance of manhood, scholarship and perseverance, which led him to pledge in 2008 Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., ETA SIGMA. He was number 9 of 10 on his line and was given the name “Frank the TanQ”. His love for Omega ran deep within his veins and he devoted his time serving on various committees. In 2002, while attending Lincoln University, Reggie joined the US Army Reserve, where he served for over 20 years. During his tour of duty, he traveled the world meeting people from all aspects of life, making lasting impressions. Reggie ended his career as SGT. Frank Reginald Williamson. His joking spirit and contagious laugh will be embedded in the minds of many forever. Reggie was big in stature but was truly a gentle giant.

Frank worked for the Urban League for many years and did security in his spare time. Frank was a member of Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc. and founder of the St. Louis Black Restaurant Week. He enjoyed spotlighting local businesses and restaurant owners, adding awareness to the community. He enjoyed taking pictures and was well known for his skill throughout his family and community. His pride and joy was becoming a father and spending quality time with his one and only son, Frank M. Williamson, IV (Sonny). The movie nights, dinner and long drives were his favorite bonding times. Reggie was very family oriented, always checking in on his family making sure everyone was ok. Holidays will never be the same without his presence.

Frank leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Michelle Williamson of Belleville, IL; his father, Frank A. Williamson of St. Louis, MO; son, Frank Michael Williamson IV of St. Louis, MO; mother of his son, Deanna Washington; three aunts, Lucille Miller of Swansea, IL, Robin Boyce of St. Louis, MO and Rebecca (Michael) Marshall of Hawaii; one uncle, Robert Williamson of St. Louis, MO; special cousins, Sicily Boyce and Audrey Jackson-Luster and a host of other cousins and friends.


For My Dad

“Dad, I am often told I am just like you.

I am honored beyond measure if that is true.

You were the best example of what a man should be.

I am overwhelmed that one day someone would say that of me.

I never told you enough, how proud I am to be called your son,

Now that you are gone, I want to tell everyone.

You gave me much more than a name,

Someday, I hope my son says the same.”

Love,  Sonny

    Hello Frank,
    It’s been quite a while since we spoke and sorry to connect on this very sad occasion. . However I believe there is no other Love like the Love of a child and that Love & bond will never leave you, Frank was your one and only.. He is gone way too soon is by far an understatement but his life was full and impactful. Life has so many questions and challenges and really needs only one answer, Our Faith. If we look to our Lord and Savior for comfort, strength and guidance we will find peace in the midst of the storm and light in the darkness.

    Recently I saw your Son at an Omega Fraternity event and although our conversation was brief he seemed like he had grown a lot and mature beyond his years. It was extremely exciting to see him again. I was so glad that he remembered me and made an effort to come across the room to greet me. Although we have moved in different directions throughout the last decade or so I wanted to make sure that I let you know you and your Family are in my thoughts and prayers. May those precious moments of joy and love carry you through this difficult time.

    Forever your Friend (former colleague),
    Cindy Isom

    My Dear Cousin, Reggie:
    How much this hurts that you have gone quietly. You were like a son to me. I asked you once to tell us something about your Grandma Cora as she was being inducted as one of our Seniors in the Martin Family Reunion which was held in St Louis. You agreed to do so and boy did you give a great rendition of Aunt Cora with your voice. You talk about how she had baked a cake and told you not to touch it. She took a nap and woke up to discover that some of her cake had been eaten. She asked you did you eat some of her cake and you replied, “No grandma” but the evidence was all over your face. The family and I were laughing so hard we couldn’t hardly stop laughing at your imitation of her.

    I last saw you in December during your photography job for Cameron and Gabby’s wedding at their request. I had no idea it would be my last time seeing you. I love you and miss you Cousin. I know this is even harder for both your mom Michelle and Frank and son, Sonny. God will take care of us all. You are now officially a great Angel watching over us all. Blessings to my little Big Cousin, Reggie. When you meet up with the other family members be sure to tell them Hello for me. May God bless your spirit and love you left us with to remember you. RIH!

    SGT Williamson, you will be truly missed. I enjoyed our conversations we use to have on a occasion. Definitely gonna miss that goofy laugh that you had. The times we shared at the 620th where definitely memorable and I will never forget. I still laugh when I think about the time you where doing security at the club and I seen you hard at work 😂. All the shenanigans you tried to involve me in as well. You where just a genuine person and this world is going to miss it. Rest Easy Battle …

    Frank, words can’t describe how cool of a dude you was man. This completely caught everyone off guard. Just a jolly, direct, real sincere guy, and will be missed by many! May your soul be at peace. Condolences to your Jr. and rest of your family.

    Reggie was a wonderful and loving young man. It saddens me that his laughter will not be heard anymore. He was such a funny and genuine guy. I’m glad I got to see and hug you last year. You will truly be missed by everyone. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family. May God provide you all with strength. God bless you all.

    I am loss for words but my memories of you will last forever. You would randomly call me just to talk and I carved out that time for you. My little cousin is calling me and I was happy to receive the call. We spoke of your job, travels, your son, relationships and of course Omega. You were in town during the Super Bowl one year and called to see if we were having a party. We invited you over immediately. But then you called back and asked could you invite your frat brothers. We were like, sure, how many?”. Your response was, “ all of them”. Thank goodness you found another location. A conversation I will always remember. You also was planning a trip to Chicago and we were to meet for dinner. However, God called you home earlier than I expected. Rest Easy Reggie. Until we meet again!

    Michelle , Frank , Sonny and the rest of us!

    When the Saints go home it gives God PleaSure!
    it creates pain for us but we will see them again.
    We choose to focus on the good times.

    I love all of you..
    Peace and Abundance
    Cousin Rachel
