PATERSON, Lt. Col. (Ret.) Reginald John "Reg" —

Reg passed away suddenly but peacefully, November 16, 2014 at his home in Thornhill. He grew up in New Brunswick, was in the first graduating class of CMR, went on to complete his engineering degree at both RMC and McGill University. Reg had a long (1958-1984) and distinguished career in the Canadian Armed Forces serving in Canada and abroad, completing tours of duty for both NATO and the UN. Reg is predeceased (1982) by his first wife Ilse (nee Wachter) of 23 years and is survived by 2 of their 3 children, Lisa and Michael (Lisa Merkley) and grandchildren Shawn and Kenzie, and by his loving wife Lois. Reg is survived by seven siblings and he will be truly missed by them all (Ron, Victor, Elsie, Betty, Shirley, Joyce and Mac). The world has lost a true officer and a gentleman - always giving and expecting nothing in return. We love and miss you! Visitation will be held at R. S. Kane Funeral Home, 6150 Yonge St. (at Goulding, south of Steeles) on Friday, November 21, 2014 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held at Blessed Trinity Church, 3220 Bayview Ave., on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. Interment to follow at Beechwood Cemetery. A celebration of Reg's life will follow at the Royal Canadian Military Institute, 426 University Ave., Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Canadian Hearing Society. Condolences
