Reggie loved the Lord and truly lived the life of “God, family, church.” He was a member and a Chaplin of Prodigal Sons Motorcycle Ministry at Christian Worship Center in Manteca where he loved ministering to others. Reggie’s church family was his second family, he cared for each of them unconditionally.  Reggie’s heart was made of gold, he was a giver, always helping others regardless of any situation or obstacle. He was the first to pray for you and the first to make sure you were okay.  He enjoyed the outdoors, fishing and camping were some of his favorites. In his younger years Reggie loved riding his Harley Davidson and going on road trips. Reggie will be truly miss but as
2 Timothy 4:7 states: Reggie has fought the good fight, he finished the race, he kept the faith.
