Dwayne Scott (Scottie) Reece, age 47, passed away peacefully at the Washington Hospital Center in Washington D.C., on July 3, 2020 with family at his side. He was born on January 19, 1973 in Leonardtown, MD and was the son of the late Robert L. Reece, Sr. and Shirley M. Reece (Corbin-Pulliam). He leaves behind two beautiful daughters; Erica and Hannah, who he loved deeply and cherished.
Scottie was born and raised in St. Mary's County, MD. Once you met Scottie, you would never forget him. When he worked, he worked hard. When you gave him a job to do, no matter of the size, you knew it would get done. He was a concrete finisher by trade and was one of the best. If there was a pump job, he usually was the first one to volunteer to take that task, which required skill, strength, and endurance. For most that would be a challenging job, but for Scottie it was a simple task. He was a known by his friends and co-workers as the "man of steel".
He often assisted his friend who was a waterman every opportunity he could get, plus helped him with a variety of landscaping and farming jobs, running the equipment and jumping in to help wherever needed.
Scottie loved being around the water; fishing, crabbing and just being close to the beach. He especially enjoyed and looked forward to the charter fishing trips with his family and friends; often taking home the biggest catch of the day. Scottie simply enjoyed just being around family and friends.
Scottie is survived by his daughters, Erica and Hannah. In addition, he is survived by four siblings; Robert Reece, Jr. (Sandy) of Mechanicsville, MD; Tommy Reece (Betty Lou) of Lexington Park, MD; Lisa Raley (Tom) of Park Hall, MD; Brian "Scooter" Corbin (Marie) of Leonardtown, MD. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews; Laurie Frye, Justin Bowen, Brandon Reece, Robin Reece, Lacy Raley, Jordan Raley, Thomas Raley, Jr., Katie Corbin, Kayla Corbin, Kara Corbin, Kacie Corbin and great nephews, Alex Reece, Landon Stone, and Robert Stone.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sister, Tammy Sue (Reece) Bowen whom recently passed away, and a nephew; Preston Bowen.
