Gideon H. Regier

Gideon H. Regier was born in Aurora, Nebraska on April 17th, 1927. He was the 15th of 16 children born to Abraham and Anna Regier. Gid eventually moved to California with his family in the hopes of finding additional opportunities. In 1951, Gid met Norma Williams through mutual friends. They married later that year and purchased a home in Dinuba, starting a partnership that lasted nearly 70 years. Together, they had two children: a daughter, Mari, and a son, Jarin. After working for a number of local farmers, Gid became a mechanic and worked for many years at Grower’s Supply in Reedley. He and his family attended the Calvary Baptist Church in Dinuba. They later became members of the Dinuba First Baptist Church. In 1972, Gid and Norma accomplished a major goal of theirs in purchasing their own farm. He also opened his own business repairing tractors. He continued farming, with the support of his family, until his final harvest in 2015. He is survived by his wife, Norma Regier; children, Mari Findley and Jarin Regier; grandchildren, Brooke and Scott Findley and Ryan and Kaden Regier; sister, Irene Siering; and many extended family members. While we mourn his loss, we rejoice that his suffering is no more and that he is now with the Lord. We look forward to the day when we will get to be with him once more in heaven. A visitation will be held from 4-7pm on Wednesday, March 3rd at Dopkins Funeral Chapel in Reedley. A graveside service will be held at the Reedley Cemetery on Thursday, March 4th at 10am. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Gid’s name may be made to Palm Village Retirement Community.

Jarin, Kathy, Ryan & Kaden, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Please remember, from his place in Heaven your father its able to know all the words that you did not get to speak to him while he was on earth, and the love you hold in your hearts. It has been said, each person has three deaths: the first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time. -- Gideon Regiers legacy is a life rich with tradition, a strong work ethic and undying love for his family. Gideon must be so proud to see the new patriarch of the Regier family, Jarin, carry his legacy forward. You have raised your sons with great love, family traditions and a strong work ethic, and I know your sons will do the same. And as long as the Regier name is passed down to each new generation, Gideons legacy will remain alive. May he live forever.

In remembrance of Uncle Gid. I want to share a few cherished memories. The many years we all spent together up at Pine Flat during our family celebrations were the best. I was always touched by his humor, and his deep contagious laugh. His big wide smile said it all. He gave tough love with his gruff voice, but I knew he was really a gentle Giant. He lived his life with love and success. A true hardworking family man. These fond memories of him will live on in my heart. :heart:

Jarin, please know that our thoughts are with you and your family as your mourn the loss of your dad. My heart is breaking for you as I know the tremendous void this leaves in your heart. I remember meeting your dad and thinking he was such a strong, hard working, family manand I see so many of those wonderful qualities in you and you have instilled that in your boys and that is such a beautiful way to honor him. May God comfort you and ease the loss you bear.

Paying tribute to my dear Uncle Gid who was quick witted and quite the jokester. He loved farming and especially his antique tractors he collected for many years. Heres some pictures of him giving everyone a ride many years ago at Easter time and some family get togethers. May he Rest In Peace. :pray::cry:
