He farmed most of his life and retired as plant manager of National Linen Service.

Reggie, also known as “Racehoss”, a nickname given by his father, is best described as an avid outdoorsman who loved spending quality time with his family. Whether it be a family cookout, hunting and fishing trips, riding the levee with all of his nephews or playing a serious game of ROOK, he was most happy being surrounded by his friends and family. Reggie was loved for his quick-witted humor and tall tales. His stories will be passed down for generations to come.
The family will have a celebration of life at a later time TBA. Memorials can be sent to the American Cancer Society in the name of his Mother Mary Ellen Ingle.
Cross County Funeral Service & Crematory was honored with handling the arrangements for the Ingle family.
