Reginald Alan Bishop
Stetson - Reginald Alan Bishop, treasured father of Sarah Bishop and Gretchen Sands, died peacefully July 15, 2019, holding Gretchen's hand.
Reg was a veteran injured while serving the Maine Army National Guard in 1978. Despite his injuries he continued to work for 20 more years. He was a professional siding, roofing and building contractor, who was a Master Craftsman fabricating metal house trim. Reg did the work of three men and every customer was awed by his quality work. Reg was always surprising us with his advice, labor, financial help or giving us things he thought we needed. He loved to collect antiques and never threw anything out, as it might be remolded into some future project.
He leaves behind admired sons-in-law, Maurice Sands of Wash. and Colby Stoddard of Mass., whom he considered his son; adored grandchildren, Tahlia and Cameron Sands, and Violette and Isabel Stoddard.
He was born October 7, 1954, the son of Leola Gerow Bishop; brother to Kelly and Bea Bishop, Susan Bishop and Bill Scribner, Danette and David Mondou, and William and Jon Roberts. He also leaves many friends, including Jerry Toner; Billy Adams, whose unending support Reggie certainly appreciated; and Jake Little, joyously remembered.
His ex-wife Priscilla Holmes Stover and Willie provided much support and care his last months.
He was predeceased by two special cousins, Terry Stilwell and Dan Gerow.
Reginald will be buried by private ceremony in Hodgdon Cemetery near his departed friends, David Welton, Greg Royal and Roger Wilson.
The official celebration of Reginald's life will occur on Saturday, October 5 - his birthday weekend. The burial will be held at 10am at the Hodgdon Cemetery. The Party will take place from 2 - 6pm at 14 Houlton Rd. Island Falls, ME.
