Gyneth and family. So sorry for your loss. Reg will be missed greatly.
So sorry to hear of Regs’ passing. I worked with him at Stenpro. Keep his memories close.
I’m very sorry to hear of Reg’s passing – he was a great guy. He was also a great golfer and part of a very prestigious group in the golf world – he could shoot his age or even better sometimes. I always told him how impressive I thought that was and he just grinned.
Thinking of the family and close friends.

Condolences to the Family of Reg, I used to service the two way radios Steel and Engines used from 1985-1992. Reg was always so kind, polite, and professional to deal with. He was proud of his work and Steel and Engines. Sincerely, Glen Veinot MT&T Mobile Communications.
As a young golfer, spending countless hours at the golf club, there was group of people, that we all looked up to & they always made time for us, to provide golf tips or life in general tips. Reg was one of those people. I looked up to him as many others did and it was always a great honor when I had the opportunity to play a round of golf with him. Thinking of his entire family at this time.
