Reginald Van Williams was born on October 29, 1972 to the late Thessalonians Freddie T.Williams (Slim) and Maurice Hadnot-Williams in the small community of Moss Hill, just outside of Woodville,Texas. Reginald began his Christian journey at a young age. He was baptized at 10 years old by Pastor E.A. Coleman at New Shady Grove Baptist Church. Reginald served faithfully throughout his youth, teen, and young adult years as an active member of the youth department, choir, and Jr. Deacon ministries. Under the leadership of Pastor L.W. White, Reginald discovered his gift of playing drums and became ordained as a deacon. Reginald later was instrumental in founding of the Seed of Faith Baptist Church. Reginald served as a founding deacon at this church and later accepted his call to the ministry under the leadership of Pastor Dale Moye Sr. He served faithfully as Youth Pastor at the Seed of Faith Worship Family Center until 2013, when he was called by the congregation to serve as Pastor. While serving as Pastor of “The Seed,” Reginald served the congregation with love, compassion, and humility. He also served the community, working tirelessly to forge unity among the ministers and churches in Tyler County.

Reginald began his career, working for the Texas Department of Protective Services as a CPS Caseworker. He also worked as a Case manager for Sinclair Children’s Center. Reginald continued his secondary education, receiving his Teacher’s Certification and Master’s Degree at Lamar State College - Orange in 2000. It was after this that Reginald began his teaching and coaching career at Woodville ISD. He later attended Theological School in the State of Louisiana, graduating with his Doctorate Degree in Theology.

My sincere condolences to the family of Reginald Williams. My heart is truly sadden of the loss of this great man. We met in 2001 through the State. Not only was he my co-worker but he was my friend. When he told me his nick name was Tootie, I laughed and from that point he was Rev. Tootie. He introduced me to his family and I felt like I had been knowing them forever. Always had a big heart about doing the right thing and was such a positive inspiration in my life. The pain I feel now is beyond explaining. His complete healing has come from the Master Himself and I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort his wonderful family. R.I.P Rev. Tootie

Reggie will be missed. All I can think is that GOD needed someone to help him guide people to a better way of life. Reggie can sure help him do that. Although this feels like a sad time I am sure Reggie would want everyone to let GOD take their heart and praise him during this time. RIP Reggie. Love James Finch (Scooter)
