From: Robert

First let me explain why our family in the early years called Reg, Jack. Fathers name was also Reg, so as not to cause any confusion my Brother was called Jack. For this reason I will still refer to my Brother as Jack.
Jack was seventeen years older than myself so to me he was always my Big Brother. My fondest memories were when Jack was home on leave. He would ride me around Cheltenham on the cross bar of his bike, but one of the most memorable things was when he was in his uniform and we were seen by my school friends, I felt so proud to be with him.
I have so many memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life of Jack and also of my two other Brothers, David (Dave) and Rodger (Podge).

May you Rest in Peace Jack
Our Condolences are sent with Love to Margaret, Corrine, Gail and Families

We are very saddened to hear the news of Regs death. I worked for Reg in Kingswood, Bristol UK where Reg was the Service Manager if memory serves me right probably the late 1960s. I learnt an awful lot from Reg, he was a fair and Just boss. On occasions I know I drove him round the bend but he always reacted in a cool manner. He was an excellent Engineer and very good at problem solving and he commanded great respect from the workforce. We all loved to hear the tales of his naval exploits when in a more social setting!! Eventually we both worked for different companies within the group, a few years later I ended up sitting in his chair back at Kingswood. I also worked for him when he was the General Manager in Exeter.
Many years later we visited Reg and Maggie in Penticton where we spent a pleasant week visiting various places.
Our heartfelt condolences Maggie to you and your family.
RIP Reg, gone but not forgotten.
Best wishes, Dick and Pat Savage and family. Shrewsbury UK.

From: Dennis Smith

Very sorry to hear of the death of my excellent good friend. We served on the same Royal Navy ship and on HMS Alaunia Engineering Course.. Reg and I shared some good times together and did not allow any not so good times to interfere with our duties and friendship. Reg was a more than just a friend, he was very special. On leaving the Course it was Christmas leave time. I Married Joan and invited Reg to the my wedding.. During our Course Joan sent me home made cakes which Reg and I shared . That was the last time we were together. After leave I was sent out the to far East .during the Korean War. Reg went on a further Engineer Course. You have lost a very good Son, Brother, Father and Husband. Reg has been in my thoughts often and will continue to be. My sincere Condolences to all your family Dennis Smith
