We just lost a wonderful actor, singer, dancer and director. Rearcous Smith died this morning of pneumonia.
If he had to go, I know he loved that he died at the Springer Opera House, where he graced the stage many times. He was also a regular on the Columbus State University stage, where he graduated last year. Rea was also one of the ensemble members of Sherlock's Mystery Dinner Theatre.
Besides being a great artist, he was just a very nice man. We almost lost him a few years ago, but he pulled through. I guess this time ...
I'm going to miss you, sweet baby. That's what he called me.
