Reg Wallace (Reginald Gary Wallace) age 74 of Grand Island, Florida and formerly of Cincinnati passed away Saturday May 30, 2020 He was born February 6, 1946 in Cincinnati, Ohio the son of the late William and Marjorie (nee Long) Wallace. Reg pursued dreams and captured them. Musician, recording engineer, electrical engineer, mechanic, and chaplain. He was proud to be part of the technical crew that launched space shuttles from Cape Canaveral. Reg never met a stranger. He loved people of all ages, shapes and sizes. His passion for music was lifelong. He loved to learn and to teach. The answer to the question of what he did professionally is "everything".
Reg was passionate about the US Military and considered his service to his country a privilege. Reg served in the Army Security Agency and held a top-secret crypto security clearance. Stationed in Korea during the Vietnam war he worked and lived on the DMZ.
He served as a jail chaplain at Clermont County and won many souls for the kingdom.

We shall miss you dear sweet Reg. But you have no more strife. In fact I know for sure, I do. You're having the time of your life. I'm sure there is music. In Heaven for you to spin. Surely you're one of the greats. Up there to pick and grin. You were great in all you did. With all you gave great passion. And all turned out truly great. In Reggie style and fashion. We are grieving here on earth. But not for you but us. Achieving your greatest goal. Getting to Heaven thus. So as we bid our farewells. We know they're not goodbye. For our day is coming very soon. Yes seeing you again is nigh. So go rest high on that mountain. Your work on earth is done. And it can be truly said. You're victory's been won. We love you Reg
