Reginald Arthur Hassell

August 1, 1924November 15, 2012

Hassell, Reginald Arthur – born 1 August 1924 in Vancouver, British Columbia, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on November 15, 2012, in Delta, British Columbia. Reg belonged to a family of entrepreneurs; in his young adulthood, he and his three brothers, Robert, Lawrence, and Richard, founded a construction company, and later went on to pursue independent business opportunities. Their various projects spanned the entire province and played a prominent role in the development of many communities in the Lower Mainland. After retirement, Reg enjoyed spending time on his ranch in the Cariboo and relaxing by the waterfront on Galiano Island. Reg was, however, most contented when surrounded by his family. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 59 years, Irene; his sons Bill and Greg (Elaine); his daughters Laurie (Patrick), Katherine (Dave), and Lisa (Allen); his twelve grandchildren Lauren (Jeff), Heather (Cory), Jeff (Shana), Kiffy (Sean), Amanda, Kelli, Jocelyn, Julia, Emily, Ella, Trevor and James; his 5 great-grandchildren Braxton, Isabelle, Jimmy, Caleb, and Cali; and countless nieces, nephews, relatives and good friends. Special thanks to Delta View Habilitation Centre, where Reg was a resident for the two last years. Their wonderful care and attention was greatly appreciated by the family. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 2:00 pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, British Columbia.

Uncle Reg liked to remind me that, although my last name is Breaks, I am a Hassell at heart. The proof, according to Reg, is that we Hassells " pamper our women, we can't stop ourselves". As always, he had everyone laughing, which was the intent.
I'll miss his sense of humour.

Reg was always a special part of my Canadian life. Now I know he's in a peaceful, healthier place enjoying a nap in the sunshine (He was good at sleeping - he said everyone should be good at something xoxo). We'll all enjoy a glass with him again some day I'm sure, Love always to all the family
