He married Diane Swordy in Victoria on April 16, 1955. On retiring from the Navy, they choose to reside in Diane’s hometown, Kelowna, where Reg worked for School District 23 and was a volunteer Firefighter with the Benvoulin Fire Department.
He went on to become Chief of the Benvoulin Fire Department before joining the Kelowna Fire Department as a professional firefighter.
Reg retired from the Kelowna Fire Department to travel with Diane until her passing in 1998. Reg is survived by his children Gary (Nancy) Marlatt, Patti Sadoway, Susan (Bill) Findlay and Julie Marlatt plus 9 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grandchildren.
