Reg married and lived in Victoria.  In his later years he visited Perth regularly to catch up with his Fairbridge and 2/4th mates.

Reg was a gentle man, always happy and his company sought after.

It is known that Reg made enquiries through Fairbridge in later years to seek out any family.  Unfortunately it is not known whether this search produced any results.
