Play Tribute Movie

Lascelles Lumbado Reittie (“Guy”), born to Gertrude and Eric Reittie, started his life journey on June 28, 1952 in Aenon Town Clarendon, Jamaica. He attended the Aenon Town All Age School then later matriculated into the York Castle High School, in Browns Town. His love for children and education led him to pursue a Diploma in education at Churches Teacher’s College in Mandeville, Manchester. He then returned to his hometown to teach at his former school for a few years after which he came to Houston, Texas in 1987 to pursue better opportunities. He was a member of the renovations team as a painter with Harris County and was awarded in 2020 for 25 years of dedicated service. He was still employed at Harris County at the time of his passing on March 29, 2021.

He was a passionate father who always had a close relationship with his two children, Rene’ and Melissa. He was loved and widely known for his funny, charismatic and kind personality. All his nieces and nephews referred to him as the “cool uncle”. He was extremely easy going and easy to talk to and was never judgmental; a true confidant to many. He was also very outspoken and a fiercely loyal individual. He was a very loving and supportive husband to his wife of 11 years Alecia, and he got the most joy from being around family and his siblings.

He will fondly be remembered by his wife, Alecia Reittie; son, Rene’ Reittie; daughter, Melissa Reittie-Holness; son-in-law, O’Knegi Holness; daughter-in-law, Noash Clark Reittie; mother-in-law, Evelyn Chattersingh; step-daughter, Joella Martin; step-grandchildren: Nicollette and Nickayla Johnson; siblings: Hazel, Sonia, Rupert, Patrick, Flavia, Gen, Allison, Lois, Basil, and Heather; and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

"May his soul rest in eternal peace and perpetual light shine on him."

Guy and I go back many years, Aenon Town Primary School, then on to York Castle High , we remained friends throughout and spoke to each other on a semi-regular basis. I was concerned when he did not respond to my last 3 calls and was shocked to hear of his passing, he never mentioned any health problems,which was even more shocking. So in the old Jamaican saying "walk good my friend), and to the family my sincere condolences.

Lascelles and I go back as far as 10-11 years old from the York Castle High School days. We were in the same grade. A dear friend , humorous, easy going and kind.
There are times when we have not seen each other for years, but whenever we met it was as though no time had elapsed. He will be greatly missed.
May God strengthen the family through this their hour of grief.
Rest In Peace my brethren 🙏

He was a great teacher, he always encourages to do our best.
He will be remembered by the jokes he use to give us when he's teaching. He is one of those teachers that makes learning fun which makes mathematics and science my favourite subjects
RIP. Teach ❤❤❤❤❤🙏

Rest in eternal peace Guy. Already I am missing our telephone conversations, catching up about family matters and reminiscing about our days at Aenon Town . May your memory be a blessing to the entire family and friends.

While attending York Castle High School in Brown's Town, St Ann, we boarded at a home in Goshen. There were several of us and on various weekends we would take turns hosting each other at our respective homes. My first visit to Aenon Town was on such a weekend trip to spend it with Guy's family. At a later date, I reciprocated.
We lost touch over the years but reconnected over the last few years with regular phone calls and we reminisced about our high school days and the fun we had.
My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Walk good my friend. Gone but never to be forgotten. Rest in Peace.

I cannot forget Guy as he was called by everyone in our town. He was ever so calm, even phlegmatic. His manner never failed to disguise his ever present sense of humor. This would make his (almost off hand) comments even more amusing. But one could always be assured that they originated from a genuinely caring heart. As we say in Jamaica 'Walk good Mass Guy'. May the Lord truly bless the loved ones you leave
behind

Guy, could be characterized as my brother. He was kind, caring, humble, and full of life. There was never a dull moment being around him, He was never bothered about anything, but instead chose to live, love, and laugh. Guy classified himself as a “Yanike “ and chose to live thus. He was a good family man who had high expectations for his children Rene, and Melissa. Sleep In Peace my friend, May God grant you eternal rest.
