To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I met Reg about a year and a half ago and I would have to say there are very few people I have met that I can say that Reg is one of those people that made me a better person for having known him. Reg was a person who was as laid back as they come and I remember him loving his ice cream, his favourite was strawberry! Reg and I had many talks about what he did for a living and what kinds of things he like to do since he retired. I will definitely miss you Reg, May you Rest In Peace until we meet again.
