Obituary of Reginald Alan Beneteau
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected death of Reginald Alan Beneteau on Friday, August 4 at the young age of 66. His passing has left a void in all of our hearts.
Left to mourn and forever miss him are his wife, Laurie, his children, Stacey & Alex Lyons, and Katie & Matt Beneteau, and his grandchildren, Finn, Isla, Draydin, Jaida, Maysea, Harlow & Haisley. Loving brother-in-law to Dan & Shirley Mayville, and to the late Dave Mayville. Son to the late Roland & Katherine Beneteau, and the late Walter & Noreen Mayville.
Reg found joy in life's simplest pleasures; a ride in his Mustang, sitting by a campfire at the trailer, spending time with his family, teasing his grandchildren, or helping his kids and friends with any task at a moments notice. He was absolutely adored by his grandchildren and that feeling was reciprocal. Reg & Laurie would have celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary next month. They were best friends and were always by each others side. Their love story was one of a kind and one that their children hope they can live up to. Reg will be remembered for his contagious laughter, warm smile, and unwavering, easygoing nature. He leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories that will forever remain in our hearts. “The greater the love, the stronger the grief.” We miss you so much.
To honour Reg’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. There will be an open house “Reg’s Pink Party” celebration of life at the Knights of Colombus in McGregor (9560 Walker Rd.) on Sunday, September 3 from 1-4. Everyone is welcome to attend, wear pink and share their memories of this amazing man.
