BILLARD, Norman Reginald 'Reg'
He moved to Neil's Harbour during the early 40s, where he would meet his wife, the love of his life, make their home, and raise their boys. He took great pleasure from the visits of family and friends. Reg loved cards, puzzles, the Down Homer and was an avid reader. His working life was spent fishing with his father-in-law, Jack, brothers-in-law, Joseph and Donald, as well as friends and neighbours in Cape Breton. He retired from fishing at the age of 66 and was a regular "down the shore." He was a keen story teller and took great enjoyment as a volunteer tour guide for Yankee Bus Tours well into his 90s.
