Obituary

Elmer Shawn Reams was born July 11, 1985 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Elmer Hogan, Jr. and Demetria Reams. He departed this life on September 24, 2022.

Elmer began his early education in Stuttgart Public Schools in Stuttgart, Arkansas, before attending school in Memphis, Tennessee, where he found an inspiration and passion for music. Elmer saw music as a way to share stories, and through his music is how he often shared the stories of his life. Elmer honed in on his craft and would often lend his artistry skills in support of young local friends and family longing to produce music of their own. 

Elmer's home was an "Open Door" to many young members of the community. He is known to many of them as "Eastside Reams." Numerous individuals have spoken of how he was always willing to lend an ear to their questions and problems.  Many times, Elmer would set aside the thunderstorms blowing within his own life, to help others deal with the thunderstorms of their lives. People felt "cool vibes" around him and could trust him in conversation. He was never a "Stone for Stone" or "Tit for Tat" type person. You could also depend on Elmer to help organize family gatherings, as well as assist in orchestrating gatherings within the community. Relatively a young man in his own right, Elmer did not mind sharing with you what he thought life was all about.

Elmer found the love of his life and married the apple of his eye, Ceclie (Holt) Reams on October 24, 2016 in Benton, Arkansas. He was a devoted husband to his wife, father to his children, and loving person to his friends and family. Let's remember this child of God with the BIG HEART!

He was preceded in earthly departure by maternal grandparents Charles and Jeannette Reams; paternal grandparents Elmer and Lucille Hogan; and a special loving aunt Lavern Reams Sanders.

Elmer Shawn Reams leaves to honor his life in Stuttgart, AR, a beautiful wife Ceclie (Holt) Reams; two sons Emarion Reams and Zontravious Smith; one daughter Yu'nique Reams; one unborn child; his mother Demetria Reams; his father Elmer Hogan, Jr.; three brothers Cordaro Reams, Demario (Rio) Hogan, and Joshua Chambers; one sister Ileasha (Red) Williams; aunts Vickie Reams Washington, Amanda Reams, Charlotte Reams, Betty Howard, Mary Ann Hogan, and Joyce Hogan Cox; uncles Charles Reams, Albert Miller, Dennis Hogan, Wilbur Hogan, Bob Hogan, Ray Hogan, Eula Hogan, and David Hogan; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.
