SCHESKE – Reginald Raymond, on April 17, 2008 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 68 years. Taken from us too soon, we mourn the loss of our beloved husband, father and friend.
Reg moved to Vernon from Vancouver Island in 1994 to enjoy his retirement years. He loved animals and people and was an avid outdoorsman. Amongst many things, Reg enjoyed bowling, golf and pitching horseshoes. He loved camping and fishing and the freedom the wilderness provided.
His first loves though were his family and friends and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Marian, his son Cal (Rianna) Scheske of Lumby; stepsons: John (Melissa) Binnie and Mark (Candace) Binnie, both of Vernon and by his daughter Pam (Bob) Cielen of Port Coquitlam. Also by his grandchildren: John, Brodie, Kathy and Samantha, all of Nanaimo; Ryan, Dallas and Keaten, all of Vernon; Joshua and Kristofer of Port Coquitlam. Reg also has several aunts, uncles and cousins in BC and Saskatchewan whom will also miss him.
Reg, Papa, Grandpa, Dad will live in our hearts forever and be lovingly remembered always.
The family invites his friends to celebrate Reg’s life with us on Sunday, May 18, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. in Unit 107, 2806 – 35th Street, Vernon.
