James W. Reger passed away August 16, 2023 peacefully at his home. He was born on June 25, 1936 son of Otto and Lucille (McMahan) Reger. He worked at the Mineral Point Maple Leaf Creamery from 1952- 1990, worked for Scott Williams as a mechanic from 1990 - 2000.
He became a life member of the Beowulf Motorcycle Club in 1977. He had a love for Antiques, cars and of course loved riding his motorcycle. He liked to cook (little secret he was good in the kitchen) And most of all he was a master at fixing everything from a broken a pocket watch to a broken down car. He had a soft spot in his heart for kids.
Jimmy left us on his own terms, comfortably, peacefully in his own bed in his own home with his family at his side. He wouldn't have had it any other way.
We are all going to miss your wit, wisdom and sense of humor.
Jimmy is survived by his wife Mary V (Tredinnick) and children Rose Marie Hanna, Terry (Otis) Nelson, Rusty (Kelly) Reger, Mark, Lisa (Lynn) Howard, 7 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren.
