December 7, 1954 – July 11, 2019

On July 11th, 2019, after a long journey with cancer, Reg Klics passed from this life, to eternity in the loving arms of his Savior Jesus Christ. He was at peace and comforted by the love of his family; secure in his Christian faith.

He leaves behind a family who love and miss him dearly. Reg was a loving husband to his wife Betty, throughout 43 wonderful years of marriage. He was a devoted father to his two sons, Steve (his wife Annick), and Rob. His most cherished title was grandfather to Raynor, Cortana, and Ethan. He is deeply cherished and missed by his mother Shirley, sister Terralin, brother-in-law Myron and niece Deanna. He was predeceased by his father Simon.

He will be greatly missed by many more family members and friends, all of whom treasure the time they had with him, and the memories they will keep forever.

Born and raised in Taber, Alberta, Reg spent a happy childhood hunting gophers, learning guitar, rocking out, and making reasonable amounts of mischief.

With his Computer Science degree from the U of A, Reg spent most of his working life in technology at Chevron Canada Resources, where he filled many roles and traveled far over an impressive 36 year career.

Reg had a love for (good) music, the outdoors, and time spent with his loved ones (especially his grandchildren!). Together, we enjoyed many camping trips, concerts, vacations in places near and far, and time spent puttering around the back yard.

He had a calming presence, and was always ready with a joke or comment to lighten the mood. He loved cats, never used 5 words when 4 would work, and would rather fix it himself than buy a new one.

Reg had a deep Christian faith, and was passionate about his work on church projects involving outreach and missions in Calgary (and supporting missions around the world).

His memory with be cherished, and we will always treasure the love he shared with all of us. We look forward to the day where we will see him again, in paradise.

A Memorial Service will take place on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 11:00 am at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church (73 George Fox Trail, Cochrane, AB).

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Agape Hospice, or to Pastor Mike Kuhn of Lutheran Bible Translators Canada, or St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, for Missions.

    I was saddened to hear Reg had passed away, but thankful that he is now home with Jesus whom he loved and served. I had the privilege of working with Reg when he was my team leader in the IT department at Chevron. I respected him deeply and fondly remember his kindness, support, calming manner, and steadfast integrity. I regret that I am unable to attend his memorial service, but please know I am thinking of and praying for his family and all who grieve his passing. The pain is real and tears are right to flow, but may the Lord comfort you as only He can and sustain you in His grace. How wonderful the hope we have in Christ Jesus who died in our place so that in Him we could have real and lasting life beyond anything we can imagine. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants.” (Psalm 116:15)
