Artist, III (Chesapeake), two sisters, Karen Artis Bacote (Larry), South Carolina and Angela Jones (Chesapeake), several grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a host of family and friends. Oreste will be missed dearly.

Maurice Smallwood To Karen, Bubba, Angie & the Artist Family: We send you our condolences, and will pray for you during this time of mourning. May God give you the peace that transcends all understanding this day and forever more. We spent time with Reste and Bubba on Bold street around July 5th, 2017. It was a mini reunion of neighbors, and we all were glad to see each other, had great time and shared some good laughs. Reste was in good spirits that day despite his health conditions. I was very glad to see him that day and was introduced him to my wife (Debbie) and daughter (Shelby); my son (Jordan) who did not make this trip. Love you guys, Maurice (Shelby), Debbie, Jordan, Shelby Camille, and Jordan Smallwood – Morgan Hill, CA
