REGET, Edward D.

Edward D. Reget, 78, of La Crosse, Wi., died Thursday, September 04, 2014, in Hillview Health Care Center, in La Crosse, Wi., surrounded by his family. He was born in La Crosse, Wi., on July 9, 1936, to Robert and Susanna (Fancher) Reget. He married Patricia Mackie on April 28, 1956, in St. James the Less Catholic Church, La Crosse, Wi.

Ed was a graduate of Aquinas High School, class of 1954. Ed worked in a variety of jobs, most dealing with the automotive and plumbing industries. He operated his own Mobile service station, and worked at Dahl Ford and Ace Plumbing, before finishing his career as the Highway Shop Superintendent for La Crosse County.

Ed was a people person that loved to entertain his family, friends and co-workers. His cookouts were legendary for prime rib on the grill (everyone’s favorite), but homemade pizza and chip dip were family favorites for Packer Sundays. Ed loved his Wisconsin sports teams, but was an avid Packer fan first and foremost.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one sister Margaret Wittenberg and one brother Robert Reget.
