"Reginald Anderson was full of life, love, and laughter. His beautiful and contagious smile would light up a room. Reginald passed away in 2014 after a courageous battle with glioblastoma, but his legacy lives on in the Reginald Anderson Memorial Scholarship."
"Education was very important to Reggie. He graduated from South Windsor High School, where he played football as a defensive lineman. He advanced to Springfield College and graduated with a B.S. in Social Services. He was employed by the State of Connecticut as an adult probation officer, enjoyed his job, and took pride in his role. He treasured traveling and learning new things. Reggie also loved shopping and had quite the hat collection. His kind, gentle soul lives on in the memories he has left his loved ones with." ~ Gina Lowther
