Suddenly, on May 1st, 2023, Reginald Pye passed away. Born on March 31, 1953, Reg, affectionally known as Big Kitty, lived his life to the fullest - in other words, he drove fast and took chances. His tough exterior shielded his soft, gigantic heart that burst with affection for his friends and family. No one loved quite as much as Big Kitty; the love and tenderness he held for his three boys was boundless and the time he spent with family was truly treasured. As busy as Reg was, he never missed an opportunity to make sure his bean, Jean, knew how much he cared for her. There was nary a day Jean woke up without a love note and a pot of tea waiting for her. His presence, guidance, and larger than life personality will be sorely missed on hunting & fishing trips with his boys, cottage weekends with his family, and raucous holiday hoedowns. We take solace in knowing that his final act was a jubilant Scotch Corners Wave.
Beloved husband of Jean Pye.
Cherished father of John (Tristan), James (Jess), and Spencer (Amanda). Proud Poppy of Henry Pye. Predeceased by his parents, Lawrence (Sonny) and Lillian, and his brother, Larry (Janine). Reg is survived by his brothers Chris (Carla) and Mark (Sonya). He will be missed by his many friends, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Special thanks to the incredible friends, First Responders, Dr. Stephen Walker, and the staff at the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital.
A celebration of life will be held at Carleton Place Curling Club, 120 Patterson Crescent, Carleton Place on Sunday, May 7 between 1:00 and 4:00 pm. For those who wish to honour his life, donations can be made to The Carleton Place Hospital Foundation.
