Reginald ‘Reg’ Munden beloved husband of Margruite of Calgary, passed away on October 18, 2015 at the age of 84 years.

Reg was born in Petites, Newfoundland. He dedicated 15 years in the military service for the Royal Canadian Dragoons (RCD) and Lord Strathcona Horse.

    It is with sad hearts that Ike and I send our condolences to the Munden Family on the loss of a beloved husband and partner, father and grandfather. Reg was such a special person whom we held close to our hearts and will continue to remember him with love. He and Marg became Ike’s ‘special’ parents during the Military Service and the bond has never been broken. He also became an adopted ‘Indian’ brother to Reg and Marg’s children. When Ike and I married they accepted me into their fold immediately. He will be missed by many. When one leaves this earth for their home in heaven, try not to be sad that he is gone – but be glad that he was here.
    He will forever be watching over you all.

    With deepest sympathy and love to you all

    PEPPER & IKE ISAACS

    I only met Reg through the many phone calls and message we shared during my tenure as Colonel of the Regiment. He was a dedicated Dragoon whose contribution to the western chapter of our Association was second to none. On behalf of the Armoured Corps I send thoughts and prayers to Marg and the entire Munden family.
