A Soupsköl trophy in heaven

Dear Editor:

It was with great sorrow that I learnt of the passing of Reggie Barbour. I spent a few years in the enviable employment of Boogie, as manager of Boogie’s. It took a while for Reggie to warm to me, but when he did I made a fantastic friend. Reggie could tell a story! I have sat with Reggie and told stories with Big Steve on so many occasions.

I remember when Reggie first started talking about writing his book. I think we all agreed that it was a great idea, but we didn’t think he would actually do it! Well he did. I remember him showing photographs he had taken of one of the restaurants, he was like a child, excited, hopping around full of enthusiasm.

I had some tough times at Boogie’s, but Reggie was always there as a boss and a friend. The Soupsköl trophy will always be his, he was a fantastic guy and will always be dearly loved by me.
