Reg James Mitchell
July 16, 1934 – January 22, 2019
Reg was born in Nelson, BC to Alexander and Dorothy Mitchell and was the youngest of 3 children. He grew up in Trail, BC, and in his youth was active in sports and got into as much mischief as he possibly could.
In 1955 Reg met the love of his life Anita and they married the following year. Together they raised 4 children in Kamloops. Reg was proud of his family and was supportive of all of their activities. He was involved in sports throughout his life including fishing, swimming, hockey, lacrosse, softball, curling, skiing, golfing, and camping; and was a loyal Kamloops Blazers fan.
Reg joined Kamloops Pulp and Paper in 1964 and continued working for Weyerhaeuser until his retirement. Community involvement was important and he was always quick to volunteer.
Reg was predeceased by Anita in 2013 and son in law Joe in 2018. He is survived by his children Colleen (Miles) of Edmonton, Marcy (Rand) of Ottawa, Mike (Myrna and granddaughter Amanda) of Kamloops, and Sue (Joe and grandson Jarod) of Kelowna.
Dad made it very clear in his later years that the most important thing to him was his loyal dog Lacey, who is missing him dearly.
Reg passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer.
Special thanks go out to Dr Mekhail, all the teams at Royal Inland Hospital, and staff and friends at Chartwell.
A celebration of life will be held at Schoenings, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops on Saturday February 2, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.
Donations in his memory can be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S., Kamloops B.C., V2E 2S9. 250-372-1336, www.kamloopshospice.com.
