POPULAR radio personality Santonio "Big O" Smith, 35, was remembered yesterday by his mother Carolyn Gray as a humble man who will be dearly missed. Smith, a disc jockey at 100 JAMZ, died last Thursday after having a heart attack. His sudden death has shocked friends and family.
"Omar was a very, very humble person," his mother said. "He was very family oriented. His personality was beyond reproach. His smile, I mean anyone that would have come in contact with him, he had that personality where he would draw you to him.
"Music was something he loved. He ate, sleep and lived music. He just was a (good) person; he wasn't loud, but you would know he's there. He was always cheerful. He always had an encouraging word for people. He stayed quoting the Bible; I grew him up in church."
