To Reggies loving wife whom he spoke of so sweetly always, his children he was so proud of, and the gazzillian presents under a tree that never stopped growing. For some reason I didn't understand until now, he was glad of the winds of Dorian, it gave him a chance to spend time with his wife out of town, one of her favorite spots. Reggie made sure he went to my closing, we never thought we would get there. I wouldn't have a home without him. He spoke of his family so lovingly it was like a Hallmark Card. I'm quite sure he's standing at the gate tapping his toe, looking at his I Pad waiting on his Family and friends, looking for the best places to visit, and greet loved ones. I'll miss our problems because they always became silly lessons. To all his family thank you for sharing.
Peace Hope Faith and Grace to you all. Blessings for all time.

To the Ghioto family, I am heart broken to learn of the passing of Reggie, my thoughts and prayers go out to each of his family. My wife & I own the cleaning service that takes care of Ameris Bank and this is how I became to know Reggie. Going to work at the bank will not be the same anymore. He and I shared so many fishing stories, pictures and talks about several things. He was such a pleasure to visit and talk with and had a infectious laugh. He and I had what I would call a after hours friendship because that is the only time we ever saw one another was when we would go to clean the bank after hours. Reggie you will be truly missed my friend. Until we meet on the other side.

I am very saddened to read that Mr. Ghioto has passed away. He was always one of my favorite regular customers at Harris Teeter while I was working there. It was a pleasure knowing him while I lived in Glynn County. And as a former funeral director at Edo Miller's, please know that your family will be well taken care of at this difficult time by my former coworkers.
