Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Roy Anthony Smith, affectionately known as “Tony’ was born June 7, 1975 in Washington DC to the union of the late Roy Smith Jr (Lil Pat) and Brenda Lampkins. From this union two children were born, with Roy being the youngest.
Roy attended Washington DC Public Schools throughout his childhood and later, successfully received his GED. As a youth, Roy was adventurous and always had a thrill for life, he loved to be the life of the party and had a smile that could light up any room. Those close to Roy knew his love for his neighborhood and his pride in being a real 1,000 legend. Roy loved to shower his family with tremendous love and affection. He enjoyed cooking, being a provider and rapping along to every Juvenile song, coining himself the name of “Juve”.
Roy’s proudest accomplishment was being a father, he would speak of his daughters every chance he was given. He was a man of immense resilience and strength.
