John D. Register, Jr., 68, of Mathews, VA, a beloved husband, father, “BeBe”, uncle, and friend passed away unexpectedly at Riverside Regional Medical Center on April 30, 2019. He most valued the time he spent with his family. His grandson Dexter always brightened John’s day and John enriched Dexter’s life with fun, knowledge, and joy. John was a man who took pride in working hard, so he could provide for the people he loved. He retired from the Virginia Marine Resources Commission. He enjoyed early mornings, and being outside, especially while working with his friends at Lewis Land Surveying.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Evelyn Register; his special in-laws, Jimmy and Ann Lewis and sister in-law Eileen G. Lewis. Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 41 years Cindy; two sons, David Lewis Register and Michael Elliott Register; daughter Meredith Strickland and her husband Michael; a grandson Dexter; a brother, a sister, as well as numerous extended family and friends.

The family will receive friends at Gwynn’s Island Baptist Church from 3:00 – 4:00 pm, Tuesday, May 7, 2019 with a memorial service to follow at 4:00 pm.

Please send any donations in memory of John to the Mathews Vol. Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 723, Mathews, VA 23109 or to the Mathews Vol. Fire Dept., P.O. Box 1130, Mathews, VA 23109. Both volunteer groups treated John and Cindy with excellent service recently when they needed them as they do with all members of this community.

Faulkner Funeral Homes, Foster-Faulkner Chapel, Mathews, VA is assisting the family with the arrangements. Please share your condolences with the family at www.faulknerfuneralhcs.com.

Dear Cindy, I was so sadden to hear of John's passing. I know I only met him a few times, but I remember his smiling, friendly face. I had picked out a card to send you but realized I did not have your mailing address. But wanted to share the verse from the card with you.
" We don't have all the answers to life's questions. And when something happens that we don't understand, we cherish the things that matter the most..., how often we laughed, how very much we cared."

I will keep you and your family in my prayers. If there is anything I can ever do please feel free to contact me.
Keeping you close in thought,
Beverley Roane Oliver, (alfonsogirl@gmail.com) "

Oh man Meredith where do I begin ! Your daddy was such a sweet man! Always had a smile on his face every time I saw him. I see so much of him in you it’s unbelievable. When Bebe passed away I know a huge piece left with him, as did with me! You are the sister I was never blessed with and I wouldn’t know what I would do without you Mike and Dexter! I can’t wait to bring Ayden to the big house so him and Dexter can play, fish, and enjoy some nature! I am so sorry I won’t be there tomorrow to hold your hand but know you will be in my heart all day! May you and your family find peace eventually. Your family was blessed to have a man like Bebe and they don’t make them like they used to! Love you so much !!!! - the Holowiak’s
