Reggie was a very kind and helpful man who enjoyed helping others. He would go out of his way to lend a helping hand. His caring manner was very much appreciated by his wife’s sisters the “Libbey Girls” after they became widows.
He enjoyed snow mobiling, and fishing at his camp on Pushaw. Reggie had a distinct whistle and when you heard it you knew it was him. He was always very hard working and took great pride in caring for his home and grounds.

Surviving are his wife of 67 years, Geraldine (Libbey) Richards; his beloved dog Rondo; sisters, Verna Joy and Darlene Polk. He was a very special uncle to many nieces, nephews and cousins.
