Massey, R. L.

Quincy Leader R. L. Massey dies July 15
Quincy businessman and community leader R. L. Massey, 81, died July 15, 2009, in Tallahassee. Services were held at the First Baptist Church in Quincy last Friday. R. L. lived his life reflective of his love for God, family, his community and his profession of pharmacy. He also left many friends behind who thought the world of him. “R.L. Massey was a life-long friend,” said Walter Watson of Gretna. “He was a gentleman, a man you could depend on. He did what he promised. A man can’t find, in my opinion, a better friend than R.L. Massey.” “They didn’t come any finer,” said Charles McClellan, Quincy funeral home director and close friend who was a Boy Scout in the 1950s when R.L. was Scout Master. “He filled a great need in this community.” After graduating from the University of Florida, he joined his father in the family business in Quincy, Massey Drugs. Later he became the owner of Massey Drugs and Medical Center Pharmacy. His profession exceeded fifty years of his life and included state awards for his accomplishments in pharmacy. McClellan described him as a “hometown pharmacist who was dedicated to his customers 24 hours a day.” The love for God and his church was evident. “He was a good Christian church leader, Sunday School teacher and deacon,” said close friend Bascom Mahaffey. He was a member of the Gideons Society and in the community gave freely of his time at prison and nursing home ministries. He was also an active part of Christtown Ministries and served on their board. R.L.’s community involvement included political and social commitments. “He was a leader and role model, serving as a commissioner and mayor of Quincy for many years,” said Mahaffey. Havana Herald editor Byron Spires added, “He was a well respected pillar of the community. He cared about this community and the history of this community. He was the type that not only talked the talk, but walked the walk.” He also sponsored and coached a little league football team. He served on the board of the Gadsden County Senior Citizens Center. He was a former Chairman of the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce and served as director on the board of Citizens Bank and Trust Company. R. L. was a member of the Jaycees and Kiwanis Club. “He organized the Guy Race Lunch Bunch (a group of men who meet weekly in Quincy in honor of Mr. Race),” said Mahaffey. “He was also an avid Gator fan and a good athlete himself.” R.L. was active in cleaning and restoring the historic cemeteries in Quincy. “He was strong in keeping Quincy’s history going,” McClellan said. “He was instrumental in having 42 crosses placed at the Eastern Cemetery in Quincy commemorating Civil War soldiers, both Union and Confederate, who died at an old civil war hospital in Quincy.” A Historical Marker was also erected. Of his accomplishments, his love of God and devotion as a husband, father and grandfather superseded all. He is survived by wife Betty Butler Massey of Quincy; son, Terrance L. Massey, Sr. of Quincy; daughter, Diane Massey of Lake Tallavana; two grandchildren, Terrance L. Massey, Jr. (T. J.) and Emily Massey of Quincy; and brother and sister-in-law, Lamar and Hilda Massey of Port St. Joe, and Lynn G. Massey of Tallahassee. He was predeceased by his parents, Cordy and Eunice Massey; and sister, Marcelle McLeod.

Born November 5, 1931, in Malone, Florida, he led a very active life in business, civics, sports, and his Christian faith. His business activities began with serving as president and general manager and eventually sole owner of M & M Tractor Company, in Quincy, FL. After the sale of the tractor company, he served eleven years as the field sales manager for Rhino Products over a region which covered the entire state of Georgia, as well as parts of Florida and Alabama. He subsequently held the same position for four years over the state of Florida with the Kut-Kwick Corporation.

Alex was very involved with civic activities throughout his life. He held various positions in the Jaycees including President of the Quincy Jaycees, State Chairman of the Jaycees ‘Outstanding Young Farmer Program’, and State Vice President.

He was a member of Governor Claude Kirk’s Gadsden County advisory committee until he resigned when Governor Kirk abandoned his stated conservative views by running as the Vice Presidential candidate with the liberal Nelson Rockefeller. He also served 12 years in the Army National Guard, reaching the rank of Master Sergeant.

Alex’s love of sports led him to a life long involvement as an athlete, coach, and fan. He pitched fast-pitch softball for 22 years throughout the southeast for teams from Havana, Quincy and Panama City, competing against some of the best players in the world. After his softball career he developed a passion for the game of golf. His low handicap helped him win many awards, the most notable was the Southeastern Seniors player of the year in 1995. He coached youth baseball, basketball, and football for many years, including one year as varsity baseball coach at Robert F. Munroe High School. Alex was a passionate sports fan who followed his beloved Florida Gators for over 60 years.
