Not sure what to say?

My sincere condolences to Reijo's wife, children and grandchildren. His legacy will live on in those he loved and he will be remembered for the work he did with such love and passion.

I never knew Reijo through skiing, I had the pleasure of knowing him through business. He was warm and always there to offer advise to me when I first started in the industry. I will never forget that about him. Rest in Peace Reijo.
Thank you for everything.

Thank You Reijo for all you did for cross country skiing in Lappe
You will be missed by many

Sorry to hear of Reijo's passing. As fellow skier, he was an inspiration to me and always gave me encouragement. He gave so much to skiing and will probably be remembered as the Father of Cross Country Skiing here in Thunder Bay. Would make it to the service but just got out of hospital. Condolences to all the family.

Reijo was a great guy and will be missed by the skiing community amongst favourite memory is when he stood on the top of the last big hill at Sibley and cheered us all on.
