Reggie was a very fine man. He was more than colleague of mine...he was my friend and mentor. I worked with Reggie for over 20 years at Shurtape and the knowledge I gained from working with him was vast. I can detail the 1st time I met him in 1985 and the last time we talked. In between are great stories, legends and laughs. I owe him greatly for all the knowledge he shared and the amount of time and patience he displayed with me. There is not a week that goes by that I don't think of him and our time at Shurtape together. My heart goes out to his family and friends as he was truly one of a kind and a personality that one will never forget.
I will miss you my friend....
