Thanks to all who took time to remember my dad. I will miss him all the remaining days of my life. He was my dad and my brother in masonry. This world lost a good man and the Kingdom of God gained one

Dear Wanda,
I am sorry to hear of the loss of your dear husband. I know that you will always cherish the 59 years that you had together. I don't recall that I ever met Reggie myself, but I knew of him through both you and Brandi. He must have been a really great guy. May your memories bring you peace.

The first person I met when I joined the Alabama Guard in Opelika was Reggie.
That was 11 July 1970.В  Reggie became a Friend, and then a very good friend
for over 48 Years. We went to many countries in the World, All over the USA,
and to many Civil War Battlefields over the years.В  He really enjoyed going to
the Blakely battlefield down close to Mobile, a few miles off I-65.В  We went there
while doing a Staff Visit to the unit in Fairhope,AL.
В Reggie became my MASONIC Brother, and he taught me my Masonic Lession,
all three degrees, Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason, at the
National Guard Armory in Opelika, with George Red Marlette helping with me
as well.
В Reggie has been called home, but he will never Die.В  He will always be like
John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Elvis and some Red Skelton,
all rolled up into one.В  One the Greatest Americans I have ever known.
He loved his Family dearly, and talked about them all the time,
Poo Girl, David, and THE PILL,В  I was informed of a lot back in the early
80's.В  His family gave him a really nice funeral today, at Vance Memorial.
The playing of DIXIE, on the guitar, very slow, I know was one of his
favorite tunes.В  He told me years ago, the song would be played at
his funeral,В  and it was,В  and it was Great.
I loved Brother Reggie Wells, and I am a much better man for have knowing him
all these years.В  So, with the last words of General Robert E. Lee, which was
STRIKE THE TENT, as Reggie taught me, one of many History Lessons,
BRO REG has Struck his tent, and moved on up the Heaven.
He will be missed by many, but NEVER FORGOTTEN...
Carey Daughtry,В  or ROCK,В  the nickname he gave me way back in 1971

Reggie was one of a kind. He has forgotten more aboutВ  Personnel and Admin than most ever will know; and He shared thatВ  knowledge with me throughout the years I worked with him. He will be missed.
Greg Thomas left a message on August 6, 2018:
Reggie was a great friend and one of the full time guard members at the 111th Group HQ В that made my time there better. В Spend many hours of each day together during Desert Storm. В He was a loving husband and father and all who knew him will miss him. В May God bless and comfort his friend and family. В

В I had the pleasure of knowing Reggie and the Wells family my entire life. В Reggie and my father В (Jackie ) were friends as I grew up, it wasn't until later in life I had the honor to call him brother.В 
В  To Mrs. Wanda,David and the rest of the family, В there's nothing that can be said to ease your loss. May God be with each of you.

Reggie was a colorful character and a fantastic mentor. I learned an awful lot from him during the time I worked full time with the National Guard as part of HQ 231st MP Bn, and standing up HQ 111th Ord Gp. My thoughts and prayers are with Wanda, David, Brande and the rest of the family. Rest In Peace my friend. You will be missed.
