I have only known Rege for a couple of years, but he was a fun loving and caring human being. He always had a smile on his face and had a positive outlook on things. He will be missed by many. May God Bless.

Rege was a great friend of my Brothers. He use to come to visit me when Joe was in town. He told my kids he was "Mr . Nobody". They thought that was funny. When I told my eldest son , Craig, Rege had died , he said:"He was Mr nobody, but he s Mr Somebody to us." Carol(Hynes) Chowaniec.(Mr nobody was his fun name with the kids.)
