Reginald was born on November 11, 1928 to Dorman and Lily White of Badger. He married the love of his life Cora (Noseworthy) and they raised a family of nine children together. He dearly loved his children and grandchildren and was very proud of them. Reg could be seen riding his scooter and dropping by to visit friends and family for chats. His favourite past time was playing pool and cribbage. He will be dearly missed but we are thankful for the long and wonderful life he lived.
