REGINALD "REGGIE" PRIMEAU, 77, of Fort Wayne, died on Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at Canterbury Nursing Home. Born Aug. 13, 1936, in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan Canada, he was a son of the late Richard and Mary Catherine Primeau. He and his wife and family moved to Fort Wayne in 1961 where he played hockey for the Fort Wayne Komets. After his hockey career, he worked in the food brokerage business until retirement. He was proud of his many athletic accomplishments, his induction into the Komet Hockey Hall of Fame and Prince Albert Saskatchewan Hall of Fame, being named 1955 Athlete of the Year in Prince Albert and was honored to have his #12 Komet Jersey retired by the team. He will always be remembered by his family and friends for his jovial laugh and infectious smile and leaves many wonderful memories for all to cherish. He is survived by his loving wife of almost 58 years, Sonja; sons, Richie (Diane), Greg (Gretchen) and Rodney; daughter, Pam (Randy) Potts; grandchildren, Lindsey Primeau, Lesley (Dave) Slowik, Ashley (Jack) Runyon, Aimee (Shaun) Mungovan, Ryan (Ashley) Potts, and Corey (fiancé, Lindsey Pape); great-grandchildren, Carley and Courtlynn Slowik, Tanner and Cameron Potts, Dylan and Avery Mungovan, Ryder and Rysen Runyon and Ryder Pape; brother, Ron Primeau; and sister, Elsie Knoble. He was preceded in death by brothers, Alex, Ernie, Larry, Norm, and Clarence; sisters, Phyllis, Lina, Alvine, and Gladys. A memorial service for Reggie is 11 a.m. Saturday, May 31, 2014, at St. Albans Episcopal Church, 7308 St. Joe Road, with calling one hour prior. Calling also from 2 to 4 and 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 30, 2014, at St. Albans Episcopal Church. He will be laid to rest at Covington Memorial Gardens at a later date.
