On Saturday, June 20, 2020, Reggie Nalley, loving Father, Grandfather, Brother and friend to many passed away at the age of 69.

Reggie was born November 25, 1950 in Baytown, TX to Roy Lee and Floreine Jeanette Bailey Nalley. He has three daughters, Carmen Bobinger, Cassie Patterson, and Laci Perez that were his world. He was blessed with eight Grandchildren and spent every chance he got passing his knowledge down to them.

Reggie was many things to many people, but most of all, a friend to everyone that he met. If something broke down, he was the one to show up with a smile on his face and a handful of tools to fix it. No motor or mechanical contraption was invincible to Reggie.

Reggie worked most of his career as an operator for Chevron Philips Cedar Bayou where he retired. Along the way he was involved in fire and rescue where his team became twelve-time World Champions. He became President and instructor for IRECA (International Rescue & Emergency Care Association) and traveled the world teaching people fire and rescue techniques. He was also well known around the Fire School in College Station, where he instructed fire and rescue classes. Reggie served as a volunteer paramedic with his Brother-In-Law, Doug Pope, for many years in the Old River area.

Reggie was much more than just a shade tree mechanic or operator. He was a very accomplished hunter and marksman. He could consistently hit a target at a hundred yards with his bow or 600 yards with one of his precision rifles. He was passionate about the outdoors and taught his daughters to hunt at a very young age. He also taught many children as well as adults how to shoot at the ranch in Junction. He loved to fish and had just went deep sea fishing a week ago with family and friends.

Reggie was preceded in death by his father Roy, mother Floreine, and brother Randy. He is survived by his daughter Carmen and Jim Bobinger, daughter Cassie and Sam Paterson, daughter Laci Perez, sister Kathy and Doug Pope, sister Patti and Gene Hennigan, grandchildren Bryce Cashat, Austin Perez, Parker Huntley, Oliver Paterson, Gavin Bobinger, Morgan Bobinger, Karen Buckingham, Kristin Nalley, and numerous cousins, nephews and nieces.

The Family will receive friends for visitation at Hillside Church on Friday, June 26, 2020 from 3:30 – 5:30 PM, with the service from 5:30 - 6 PM. A reception will be held from 6:30 to 9 PM at 10026 Walker Lane, Baytown, TX 77523.

After reading most of the memories, I don't recall if anyone mentioned that Reggie was Santa every Christmas for those that invited him. He came to my house and played Santa for Kyle for several years. Reggie and I worked together so would take off to work and Linda would take care of Kyle. Reggie was always available for a comforting moment when needed.
He taught me to shoot one day at the end of his street before we went work. He was a friend to all and he will be greatly missed.
He was a great man. I hope I get to join him up there someday.

Rest in peace Reggie.

Words cannot describe the sadness I felt when I heard the passing of Reggie. He was truly one of the “good guys”! I have known the Nalley/Popes for 20 + years and honored to call them my friends!
Reggie never came in the office without stopping by to say “hi” and usually had a great story to tell me either about his daughters, grandkids or a hunting/ ranch story! Reg will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.
Love and condolences to family,

We are so sorry to hear the news of Reggie. He has been a great customer for many years at our family business Town & Country Sales. We have recently seen him in the shop several times and I just spoke to him last week about some furniture. I’m so sad we didn’t know and weren’t able to make it to the service. Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers. He always spoke so highly of family and you could tell he loved his property in Junction. Fly high my friend!

I was a caregiver to Reggie’s Mom. Reggie was very personable first time I met him. He was always very nice to me, as well as accommodating. Reggie would almost immediately address any concern that voiced to him. I’d say “Reggie, the vent is blowing air directly on your Mom, that’s not good”, he was like Johnny-on-the-spot and made sure I was satisfied with whatever he did for me. A part broke on my very, very old single-serve coffee pot. I showed it to Reggie … he gave it a good looking over and then took the broken part with him. He returned a few days later with a replacement part that he MADE HIMSELF. I was so thankful, because I wasn’t ready to part with my old dinky coffee pot.

I enjoyed talking with Reggie. I would ask about his trips after he return, and he would tell me about his workshops, etc., which was very interesting. I would say “Wow Reggie, you wear a lot of hats!”

One conversation I particularly remember, which took place after one of the ‘Donut Wednesday’s’ at his Mom’s house. Reggie was trying to convince me why I should switch my political party, unsuccessfully. Reggie talked to me for little while like I was his student, explaining why I should change over. That conversation took place sometime ago, but I still smile and chuckle to myself when I think about it.

I knew that Reggie had been experiencing some medical issues, but his passing is such a sad shocker. He looked' great' last time I saw him, which was at a 'Donut Wednesday at his sister's house'.

To Reggie's family, I am so very sorry for your loss.

Reggie was a great friend, co-worker-, co-teammate for our Cedar Bayou ERT, and mentor. I can only imagine Reggie now meeting Christ face to face and explaining the efficiencies of rope rescue and haul systems. I will miss you my friend until we one day meet in heaven. I pray for your family and pray GOD has embraced a remarkable man into heaven.
