Reginald Harald Kreil of Rimbey, Alberta passed away in the Rimbey Hospital & Care Centre on Saturday July 3, 2021 at the age of 66 years following a brave long fought battle with Multiple Sclerosis.
Reg was born to Rolly and Esther (Erbwein) Kreil on the family farm during a blizzard in Etzikomis, Alberta in April of 1955. Reg was the first of four siblings.
Reg had a strong personality, he was “his own person” always. Reg was known for his humor and fun-loving ways. He loved things that went Boom and gopher hunting. Reg loved making potato cannons and was always taking Mabel’s hairspray until she finally quit buying it. Reg loved sitting around the campfire, and if he could find any defective spray paint cans they would be tossed into the fire as well and everyone would hide and then BOOM. The poor dog was terrified.
Reg was a heavy-duty Mechanic and Service Manager. He worked for Red Deer Midway Farm Supplies, Harvestore Silage, Rachars Farm Equipment and Rimbey Implements. MS made him retire in 2002. He had a lot of farm friends who would call him at home at all hours of the day and night to ask him advise.
Predeceased by his Dad Rolly Kreil and brother Donald Kreil Reg is survived by his loving wife; Mabel (Doran) Kreil, his sons Shane (Robyn) Kreil and their children Ashton, Franklin, Chelsey and Luke, Travis Kreil and his sons Kevin and Ryan (special friend Sarah) Roger and Gary Kreil. Reg also leaves to mourn his Mom Esther (Eberwein) Kreil, siblings Rick Kreil, Melody (Scott) Campbell, Deb (Wade) Raugust and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles and all who knew and loved him.
Reg loved his Lord and Heaven was looked forward to. His brother Rick who also has MS and is in palliative care, and Mom Esther said that Reg and Rick were both racing for the Pearly Gates together. Reg won.
