On October 31, 2020, Reginald “Reggie” Mathis, loving husband and father of two, passed away at age 75.

Reggie was born on January 12, 1945 to William Mathis and Florence (Johnson) Ruffin. He attended Fifth Avenue High School and married his high school sweetheart, Gloria Jean Harper on June 28, 1969. In their 51 years of marriage, they raised two daughters, Traci and Tricia Heather.

In the early years of his career, Reggie worked at Westinghouse. He later worked as a custodian at Gateway School District in Monroeville.

In retirement, Reggie enjoyed “taking life easy” and cherished fishing, weekly breakfasts with friends, and cooking holiday meals. An avid collector of curios, Reggie maintained an extraordinary assortment of coins and watches. He was known for his vibrant, and often contentious stories, his quick wit, and generous nature.

Reggie was preceded in death by both of his parents and three brothers, William Floyd Mathis Belvin Ruffin, and Alvie Fennell. He is survived by his wife, Gloria Mathis, their daughters, Traci Jackson (Gregory) and Tricia Heather Shelton (Charles), his brother Ralph Mathis, his sister Shirley Jackson, five grandchildren, Tyler Jackson, Eric Jackson, Christopher Shelton, Nathaniel Shelton, and Shayleigh Shelton, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A private service will be held at Monroeville United Methodist Church, Center Road, Monroeville. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Autism Connection of Pittsburgh.

Words cannot express how deeply I am saddened by the loss of my Uncle Reggie. I will always remember the good times we have shared as a family. He was a character with his sharp witty mouth, so much fun to be around. I will truly miss talking with him, he would always ask about everybody down south. One of his favorite sayings was "oh, well whatcha going do", I am going to miss hearing him say that as his response to any situation. Praying for Aunt Gloria and the entire family. Rest in peace my Uncle Reggie.
Love your niece Linder

I always looked forward to seeing and chatting it with my Uncle Reggie, He reminded me a lot of my dad, Uncle Reggie's oldest brother (Alvie Fennell). Unc was such a caring and genuine person. His trademark was his quick wit and addictive laugh! I will miss you Unc.

Aunt Gloria and family, you are in our prayers and we love you!
