Reggie Newton Lohr died on September 19, 2023 surrounded by his loving family. He was owner of Lohr Plumbing both in Northern Virginia since he was 15 and here in Beaufort for the past 35 years. \n\nHe leaves behind his devoted wife for over 48 years Judy Lohr, a psychotherapist, \n\nhis son Brett Doran, owner of Lohr Plumbing, his wife Shawna Doran, their son Colton, and daughter Ava; \n\nhis daughter Trina Doran Butts, a PhD Professor at UGA, her husband Chris Butts, their children Charlie, Logan, Maggie, Piper, Mary Scott, and Luke; \n\nhis daughter Heather Lohr Hipp, a Nurse Anesthetist, her husband Colonel Brad Hipp USMC and their children Mack and Wyatt.\n\nReggie was born in Albermarle County, Virginia in 1941 and spent much of his childhood playing on his grandparents 130 acre farm. He began work early as a plumber in his teens and by the time he was in his early 20’s he was running large crews of men installing the plumbing for commercial construction sites. He started his own plumbing company in Fairfax Virginia and after he married Judy in 1975, they settled in Manassas, VA. Reggie obtained his Master plumbing certification and continued to build his business in the suburbs of DC to include all aspects of the plumbing specialty.\n\nIn 1988 they picked up their hectic lives in Northern Virginia and moved to Beaufort, SC. Lohr Plumbing was again established and has been a fixture in the community ever since. His son Brett eventually joined him in the business. They worked together for many years until Reggie retired and today Brett is still the owner of the company. Reggie’s hard work ethic and love for any work-related challenge are qualities that those who knew him will remember well. He prided himself on “outworking” the younger generation.\n\nReggie also had a passion for Corvettes and motorcycles. He rode his Harley V-rod all over town well into his late 70s. He had several Corvettes over the years, but his main hobby car was his ’62 Vette that he spent years restoring.\n\nReggie was immensely proud of his family and worked hard each day to ensure everyone had the tools to be successful in their own lives. He supported all 3 women in his life through high school and college at the same time and enjoyed bragging about their success. \n\nThere are no immediate services scheduled at this time. A future celebration/memorial service will be announced once the dates are finalized.\n\nIn the meantime, please share a memory (or photograph) of Reggie on this page.
