In 1967, the family moved to Princeton, Ill., where he was self employed in physical therapy for 45 years. He was interested in sports, participating in baseball, basketball, track and college football. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, dancing and a good card game. "E" was a good friend and was appreciated for what he brought to the table. Lead by humble example, blessed by virtues of patience, tolerance and understanding. There was not a selfish bone in his body. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. He loved socializing with the Ventana Lakes community as they walked lakeside path beside his backyard patio. He spent evenings studying the constellations and flight patterns. He enjoyed spying on wildlife, birds and critters. He also followed all sports activities and relished his childhood travels to Chicago, yet another disappointed lifelong die hard Cubs fan. Surviving are his wife of 54 years, Alice (Haraldson) Reeg; four children, Janice Reeg, of Portland, Maine, Bruce Reeg, of Goodyear, Ariz., David Reeg, of Litchfield Park, Ariz., and Scot (Brenda) Reeg, of Greenville, N.C.; seven grandchildren, Matthew, Jessica and Adam Reeg, of Phoenix, Haley, Alison, Logan and Meredith, of Greenville.
