I met Col. Fansler in the 1970's as he established DNR LE Training classes at UGA Ctr. for Continuing Ed. I was his liaison officer for yr-round, mandatory LE training sessions, as I was assigned in Athens and could easily assist his enthusiastic and determined efforts from the Atlanta office. I enjoyed his kindness at lunch, and learned much as I drove him about in Athens, and was with him and Avis at Ga. football games, which he loved.
My involvement with him in training classes inspired me to become a POST training instructor.
When he retired in 1978, contact was lost, as he and Avis moved to Hawaii. Four years ago, several rangers discovered that Avis had passed and he had moved to Florida to live with family. I was able to have several phone conversations with him at that point, and understood that, despite some disabilities in his later years, he never lost a shred of his high spirits for life and his kind-heartedness.
I will always be grateful I knew Col. Fansler -- his remarkable ways of devoting himself to all the rangers in his command, paying attention to our needs, each of our special abilities, and supporting us in a proud and professional manner. I will miss him. He was a gift to Georgia and a mentor.

Paula and I are so sorry to hear this. We always enjoyed his attendance at the Reunions accompanied by a member of his loving family. We send our sincere sympathy to his family, Frank

What a long and rewarding life it sounds like Mr. Fansler was able to enjoy! Please be comforted by the promise at 1 Thessalonians 4:14, knowing there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death which can be very heartwarming. I share my condolences with your entire family.

What an incredible man Reg was. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. Many times he told us of his experiences both serious and funny, He was a wealth of information and just plain good sense. He will be missed by all of us who knew him and will be remembered for his values and wonderful nature. Rest in peace Reg. We love you. Bob and Barb Lingis
