Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Tony Wayne Reaves Jr, age 51

Tony Wayne Reaves Jr, of Little Rock, Arkansas passed away September 26, 2023 peacefully in his sleep. He is preceded in death by his mother Diane Harvey and father Larry Reaves. 

He is survived by his lifelong spouse of 20+ years Shawna Henson and current love of his life Danna Copeland; daughters Sissy (Michael) Yarberry of Benton and Chelsea (Brian) Quadros of Benton; sons Tyler (Isabelle) Reaves of Benton and Taylor Reaves of Little Rock; grandchildren Johnny Yarberry and June Yarberry; one sister Teresa Copeland of Sherwood. 

Tony was the jack of all trades and was someone who loved Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars. He liked to go fishing and tinkering with new things. He enjoyed all types of music. He loved running his flea market down on Pratt Road. He was a fighter and would never slow down even when his leg was hurt. He loved with all his heart and was always trying to find ways to help someone. He had the best sense of humor and was a prankster if you knew him well enough. 

We will miss a great man, most of all our Dad, and a friend. 

A visitation will be held on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 1:00pm in the chapel at A Natural State Funeral Service in Jacksonville, Arkansas. A graveside service will follow at 2:30pm at Roselawn Memorial Park in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    Dad it just feels like a nightmare and I can’t wake up.
    I think of the times I was scared and you would always reassure me I would get the job or I’d be a great mom. I know your with grabdma now but I can’t take both of you gone , my heart hurts so much now. I remember so many memories that I want to just tell you about . You singing at Kenny’s , my first ride on the bike with you, talks about life and our jokes about mom. I never knew how much grandma missed her dad until I lost you so suddenly. I want to wake up but my head is in a lost dream.
