He was preceded in death by both parents and a nephew, Gareth Farrish, of Omaha, NE.
Reggie was born on March 3, 1950 in Roxboro, NC to Oveda (Lunsford) Farrish and Langston Farrish Sr. He graduated from Ballou High School in 1969. He served in United States Army while completing a tour during the Vietnam War. He was employed by Waco’s VA Medical Center, where he worked until his retirement in Sept. 2006 after 27 years of service. He married Anita Farrish Dec. 21, 1987, who was a devoted wife and caregiver until his death 30 years later.
Family and friends remember him as “Mr. Fix It” since he was very talented with hands and in electrical work. In his leisure, you would often catch him doing crosswords, putting puzzles together or watching old westerns, crime shows, or “HOW IT’S MADE”. He was a reliable husband, father and friend. He loved family and truly took his role seriously. He was definitely a man of his word. Reggie was also known to be a devoted Redskins fan, and a true Dallas Cowboy hater.
The family would like to thank special friends/sisters, Doris Dove, Miley Pulliam, & Lilllian Ruiz-Cruz for their continued support.

    Richard and I extend our sympathy to you and your family during this time of your loss. We will indeed miss Reggie. He was special to both of us and I am glad that we took the time to get to know Reggie as the GREAT man he was. Reggie, I learned, was a man that loved his blended family and he graciously accepted and cherished Anita’s friends. Richard had a special place in Reggie’s heart and he made sure his brother was treated well. Richard always perked up and had a spark in his eye when Reggie visited with him. I will miss the support I received from Reggie, when I lost my dad, my mom, my my brother, my illness and most recently as Richard has been ill. There is only one Reggie and I was proud for Anita to say you are acting like your brother. I read a quote that said, “To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved” Reggie could be trusted and was truly LOVED. Miley and Richard Pulliam
