Funeral Services will be held Monday, June 1, 2020 with viewing and visitation at 1:00 pm and a memorial service at 2:00 pm at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Snellville, GA. with Reverends Fred Lodge and Scott Crow officiating. Mr. Fortner (70) – known by most as Reggie or RC, was a native of Thomaston, GA, where he discovered his vocal gift and love of music – performing with the choirs at First Baptist Church and Lee High Singers at R. E. LEE Institute. He received a choir scholarship to Berry College and performed with the Berry Singers and theater. While at Berry, he obtained a degree in Religion and Philosophy with a minor in Chemistry. After graduation, RC remained in Rome, GA and taught chemistry at Berry Academy. RC moved to Atlanta, GA and went on to utilize his love of chemistry to help establish PPM, Inc, which was respectfully recognized as a leader in the management of chemical waste and set standards for safety in the industry. He later worked as a self-employed expert consultant, providing safety, hazmat, and OSHA training to local and national companies. For the past 30 years, RC lived in Snellville, GA. He was a strong and faithful Christian and an active member of Mount Zion Baptist Church. He was a talented and valued choir member, and gave freely of his time and energy to serve on multiple committees. RC had a servant’s heart and acted out the Great Commission by participating in multiple mission trips, including to Ukraine & Indonesia. RC was able to combine his love of travel with his lifelong love of music and missions when he joined The Sons of Jubal. These talented friends, trips and performances were some of the highlights in recent years. RC cherished his family and life-long friends, and was an individual that made the extra special effort to keep in touch and support those relationships. An avid reader with a thirst for knowledge, he could discuss most any topic with intelligence and authority. His quick wit, compassion, and dynamic personality always made for lively discussions. RC valued his son, Trey, more than anything else. His love, joy, and pride for his son was immeasurable, and they enjoyed many days boating on the lake/ocean, fishing, camping and family events together. RC shared his love of travel with Trey. Born November 27, 1949, RC was the son of the late Edith Barron Fortner and Reginald Cuthbert Fortner, Sr. of Thomaston, GA.
