George Reginald “Reg” Peterson

Reg was a big hearted, kind and generous man, always ready to offer a helping hand. After his retirement from Best Foods he spent his time as a general contractor. He renovated all of his daughters homes and most recently built their family cottage on the river where he and Willie loved to spend their days with family and friends.  In his younger days he travelled coast to coast on his motorcycles. His love of motorcycles turned to a love of the River where he spent most of his summer days. More recently he discovered Cuba and he and Willie’s last trip together was to friends there where he loved their easy going life style, generous nature and old cars.  Reg’s last days were spent at home surrounded by people who love him and he will be missed by more people then we can mention. He touched people in a lasting way and we will always have him in our hearts.  His out look was always “Life is good”, and his was “Very Good”. We know he will be watching over us with the others we have loved and lost.  Reg is remembered by wife Willie, daughter Christine (Sinclair) Williams, Granddaughter Reggie Claire , brother Mac (Mary) Peterson, sister Kim (Lorne) MacMillan. Nephew and Nieces Ian, Jamielynn, Jonathan, Jason, Jennifer and Joel. Pre-deceased by parents George and Nelda Peterson.
