Reginald Charles Seyler passed away on August 3, 2013 in Inchelium. He was born the son of Charles and Alice (Stansger) Seyler on Sept. 25, 1920 in Inchelium. Reginald grew up and attended school in Inchelium.
Upon graduation from Inchelium High School, Reginald remained in the area and worked on the family farm, trimmed trees in the community and surrounding mountains, and drove school bus for the Inchelium School District. He lived in Seyler Valley for most of his working years until selling the farm and moving to Inchelium in 1974.
Reginald was known by many as their first employer. He would hire young area residents to buck bails and haul hay on the family farm. Reginald was a hard worker and had a strong work ethic. In his spare time, Reginald enjoyed hunting, fishing, huckleberry picking, and watching baseball on television. He would often take charter fishing boats out of West- Port to catch his limit salmon fishing. He also enjoyed his fishing trips to Alaska. Reginald was an avid card player and could not be defeated at Pinochle or Cribbage. He was a true friend to all who knew him, and he will be greatly missed.
