July 28, 1931 – January 25, 2023
Harold Reger of Auburn, formerly of St. Jacobs, passed away at Alexandra Marine and General Hospital, Goderich, on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at the age of 91 years. Beloved husband of the late Donna (Harrison) Reger (October 21, 2015). Lovingly remembered by his sister Elaine (Reger) Greenhous, and brothers Paul (Josephine) and Richard (Lynda), as well as many nieces, nephews and their families. Predeceased by his parents Salome (Snider) and Harvey Reger, six brothers and four sisters. Harold grew up in Elmira, and was a longtime, faithful employee of B.F. Goodrich, Kitchener. He was an avid sportsman; happiest when he was fishing and hunting. He was a competitive and successful marksman in Ontario and the United States, thanks to his ‘shooting shed,’ which helped him hone his marksman skills. Harold also enjoyed gardening, and both living on and maintaining his rural property. Family and friends were always welcome. Harold was caring, kind, and generous, and loved to share family memories with those around him. He will be deeply missed. The family would like to thank Goderich Place staff for their support and caring. Our thanks to friends, especially Gary Hewitt; neighbours, and members of his church for their kindness and friendship. At Harold’s request, there will be no funeral home visitation or service. A private family graveside service in Elmira Union Cemetery will take place at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations to St. James Lutheran Church, Elmira or the Mennonite Central Committee would be appreciated by the family, and may be made through the Dreisinger Funeral Home, Elmira. ‘A brother has a special place in the heart that nothing can ever change.’ We will miss you brother!
