Reece was able to light up any room he entered with his beautiful smile and infectious laugh. He was always willing to offer a hand for help, an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on no matter who was in need. It did not matter where you came from, you were always welcome. Reece was a selfless man who was always able to make you smile. He was known for his big hugs and his sloppy kiss’ on the cheek. Reece’s rhythm may not have always been on point, but he didn’t care, his dance moves were contagious. Besides Reece’s main love of being a dad to his three beautiful children he was an avid hunter and fisher, and always enjoyed nothing more than taking his kids along.
