Passed away on Monday, June 15, 2020 at St. Boniface Hospital, Wpg at the age of 84 years.
Reg was born on the family farm near Langenburg, Saskatchewan, August 8, 1935 to parents Andreas and Hertha (nee Phillips) Abstreiter. He moved with his family to Glenella, MB around the age of three.
Reg grew up on the family farm with 2 brothers and 3 sisters. He went to work form the young age of 16 years old for his uncle in Saskatchewan and later worked in construction and had his own family farm at Glenella. Reg married Helen (nee Barker) in 1969 and adopted son Ryan, his pride and joy. He continued his work in construction and farming.
Reg was a very quiet and independent man. His strength and work ethic grew a respect that spoke louder than he ever needed to. He was always ready and willing to help others.
In the summer, Reg enjoyed fishing and camping with family. In the winter months, he could often be found enjoying watching his grandson Andreas playing hockey.
Reg was predeceased by his parents; brothers Mervin and Martin; brothers in law Leonard Grudeski; Walter Potrebka and Donald Jeffrey. Reg will be greatly missed by his wife Helen; son Ryan and grandson Andreas; sisters Elfrieda Jeffrey, Vernita Potrebka and Ellen Grudeski.
