Reggie lived in Canton for many years and worked for Bass Shoe Factory in Augusta as a mechanic, working on many machines keeping the factory up and running until his retirement.

In his spare time during the summers Reg and Marion loved to go camping at Weld Beach Campground. What a sight it was to see Reg driving his four-wheeler around with the little honey wagon in tow heading to the dump station.

When Reg had time, he loved to spend it in the garden planting veggies (best vegetables in Canton). With his skilled hands he was always working on his truck, cars, atv’s and every one of them had extra lights, horns and trinkets.

The family would like to that the staff at Glenridge for all their help with Reggie.

Reginald is survived by his wife Marion Gammon, of Canton; and extended family and friends.
