Reginald “Deshun” Howard, 47, of Tarpon Springs, FL, passed away on Monday, August 23, 2021.

Deshun was born in Pontiac, MI to Aaron and Rose Howard on November 28, 1973.  He was married to Jennifer on April 14, 1999, in Pontiac, MI.  Deshun was very passionate about his music as a singer/songwriter, he started singing at a very young age in church.  As a teen/young adult he performed in many shows throughout the Detroit area and shared a stage with many performing artists.  Since moving to Florida, he continued that journey by going back to his roots and focusing on God, writing and performing Christian music, participating in outreach programs, charity events and most recently entertaining with “feel good music” at many venues in the Tampa Bay area with his band.  He was also very passionate about helping and mentoring the youth, many who will forever look up to him.  He loved the game of basketball, especially the Lakers, and coaching with his brother Tony in the recent years.  Most of all, Deshun loved his family with all his heart.

Deshun is preceded in death by his mother, Rose (Dixon) Howard.

Deshun is survived by his wife, Jennifer; his four children, Correna, Chelsea, Nathaniel, Jarred; two brothers, Anthony and Keith; two sisters, Christina and Katrina (David); his Father, Aaron; and two grandchildren, Kianna, and Jackson.

    Reggie, I still can’t believe that you’re physically gone, but I know you’re spirit is present and resting in the Lord. I remember when I first met you in your front yard. I was with Twana. You were only 14 or 15 and though the whole family was/is amazing you kinda stood out because as males/men though we didn’t say a word, we had a conversation. I said to myself… look at this little dude telling me that I better be good to Twana and Brittany. At the same time as we were looking each other in the eyes without blinking, I was telling you “I got them… I ALWAYS will” we understood each other (again without saying a word) and we smiled at each other. I also remember the first time I heard you sang (no misspelling) at Franklin Rd Church of Christ during evening service. I was an instant FAN. Even though you were a little nervous, you did your thing. I’ve watched you as you matured into the amazing Christian man that you are and have always admired you. Rest In Heaven little Big Brother until we meet again. The Henry, Bradley and Dexter families extend our sincere condolences and prayers of comfort to the entire Howard family.

    Deshun was a man after God’s own heart…he focused his life on others, and especially on telling them about the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ… That is pure Love… That is Loving others, and can only be done when you are also a Lover of Jesus Christ ! He left a huge impact on this world… He was my Brother, in Christ, and can’t wait to meet him one day ❣️ We grieve, but not as others who have no Hope

    You left this world way too soon, but I know that's because God has a better plan for you. Dee was truly a gifted artist and entertained us all with his best day powerful voice. I will always cherish the times that I seen him perform. He put a smile on so many faces and made us feel so good. I wish his family and friends all the best and I just want to let you know that we all love you but as Dee would say. "God Loves You More". Rest In Peace my friend until we meet again. I will do my best to be the best me.❤❤
