His obituary in 1952 records him as a man who had identified himself with many good causes in his native parish. He was a keen churchman, a member of the Parochial Church Council as well as a sides man and bell ringer. He was a committee member of the Menheniot Co-Operative Society and the Parish Produce Association. He was an earlier member of the Athletic Association and won trophies for billiards. 2nd Lieutenant Bill Mewton attended his funeral and is is clearly stated in Reg's obituary that Mewton is representing Auxiliary Units.
