A remarkable man, 17 July 2013
Reg was my wife's uncle and I had the pleasure of knowing him for the past 40 odd years.He was a remarkable man who had no real interest in material possesions and always seemed at ease with himself.He loved the countryside,biking and camping.He was great with children,a sort of pied piper character.I can recall him playing football with my grandkids when he was well into his eighties.
After he retired he used to do gardening jobs,mainly for pensioners, and would often tell us about 'the old dears' that he did work for,most of them were much younger than him but he was still a kid at heart.
He died in May,a couple of weeks before this book was published.At his funeral it was evident how many peoples lives he had touched.This book is a remarkable story of a simple,generous and amazing man.
