Wow, really sad that I lost touch with Reggie over the years. We were best friends for many years and had many adventures at Fuller's Ranch, Westside Drive-In, Young Life, Griff's, and hundreds of other places to hang out and laugh and be kids. He was a loyal friend, a great encourager, and a nut. I did not even realize I missed him under I heard the news of his death. My thoughts and prayers are still with you, his family.

I truly enjoyed knowing Reggie at Heights. Such a pleasant guy with a subtle and off beat sense of humor. Thank you for making me laugh at myself. Best regards to his family, especially Renee.

Ryan, I was sad to hear about your dad passing away, I have been there. You should be proud of him, and remember nobody can take away the memories! My prayers are with you and your family.

I've known Reggie since 1961 (first grade). We had many memorable experiences in grade school, jr. high & high school. He actually took away my first grade girlfriend (despite the fact that I had given her a transistor radio :) but he & I were tight so it didn't matter to me. During our high school years he would come by in his red Mustang convertible to make sure I had a ride to school. We would always argue over whether the top would be up or down. He wanted the top down so the wind would dry his Beatle style haircut. I was already balding by then and would argue for the top being up. I will also never forget the game changing touchdown pass he caught (because he reminded me of it over & over & over again:) But, what I will remember the most from all of those years is despite the "tough guy" exterior, that all Ridglea West guys seem to have, Reggie had a BIG heart. During our last conversation he told me how much he Loved his Family. All things will pass away but Love will last forever. Love is the greatest of all things. This dear family has been through a lot in the last month. May you be comforted by the Love of our Lord and Savior.

It was sad Reggie lost his wife, not to long ago, and now he has passed away, too soon! I remember Reggie from junior high and high school, and he was always cute, I thought, a jock, and a quiet but fun and nice guy. We use to grab conversations in class, or in the hall, but it was hard since everybody was running to one class to the next, and if you were talking in class, the teachers let you know if they weren't happy about it. I will miss Reggie, and future high school reunions will have an empty spot because Reggie won't be there. He will be terribly missed but never forgotten, and will always be in my heart, and everybody else's who knew him.
