Reginald Charles Fortin

Reg passed quietly from this life on October 2, 2013 after a long battle with COPD.

In the last few months he spoke often of returning to Ontario to visit his family and friends, and also of wanting to go fishing and camping, two of his great passions. Besides these two passions, he also had Buddy (and should have called her Buddett) his faithful little dog.

Reg was predeceased by a baby daughter, his brother John and sister Shirley.

He leaves behind brother Earl (Kathleen); Brother Bud (Betty); two sons and a daughter, many nieces and nephews.

From 1960 to 1966 Reg was enlisted in the Regular Forces and served with The Queen’s Own Rifles (C Company). During his enlistment he took interest in boxing and won all or most of his matches. It was also while he was serving in the Armed Forces that he discovered his love for cooking.

Wherever Reg lived it seemed he would always leave behind a few lasting friendships and memories. His friends in Granisle will all miss his beautiful flowers, and lovely Christmas lights that he decorated his home with every Christmas.
