It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Reginald Francis Pitre, 86, of Tillsonburg. Reg was the beloved husband of Claire Pitre (née Quenneville), father of David Pitre (Barry Milton), Rochelle Jones (Eric Jones), Dan Pitre (Tess Pitre), Susan Pitre (Peter Muzzi) and Carol Pitre. Reg was the proud grandfather to his 11 grandchildren: Deanna, Lucas, Cameron, Campbell, Gracen, Gabrielle, Leighton, Spencer, Elise, Adèle and Jared. Also survived by his three sisters, Winnifred (Joe Ward), Joyce and Marilyn, and 18 nieces and nephews. Notable accomplishments for Reg: he pitched for the Baltimore Orioles Organization in the mid 1950s, was happily married to Claire for 59 years, was a devoted bridge player, and proud patriarch to his five children, 11 grandchildren and the entire Pitre clan.

Sharing sincere condolences and sadness with the Pitres and extended family on the Reg’s passing. I have fond memories of time spent with Reg, whether It was debating the merits of the Orioles vs Jays, numerous trips to Canadian Tire, or his willingness to drive in absolutely any kind Southern Ontario weather. His principled approach to life, his faith and, above all, his love of his family were great influences on all who knew him. Rest in peace Reg.

Claire and family: We are so sorry to hear about Reg. We have such great memories of you both, going for a swim, dropping by for a Christmas Eve visit, our talks by the pool. Reg was a real gentleman, and his love for his family was evident . God bless. Jean Kimmerly and family.
