Reggie was born on April 11, 1966 in Seward, Nebraska to Dennis & Phyllis (Kremer) Roth. Reggie had a passion and love for riding saddle broncs and rode from 1987 to 1997, when he hung up his chaps for his family. He was a member of the MSRA, NSRA, IPRA, and PRCA, and qualifying for many finals. In 1991 he went to El Paso and rode in the IPRA finals finishing 4th in the world. He worked and later managed Diamond Head Ranch, training race horses, from 1988 - 1991 and 1996. He was a ranch hand from 1991 - 1994 at the M/B Ranch working for old man Martin. He started Eagle Heart Ranch, Inc. in 1995, where he built a very successful ranch and feedlot from nothing. In 2009 Reg became a crop insurance agent, for Milligan Insurance Agency and in 2013 he branched out, owning and operating Mill-West Insurance.
Reg met Tamara Hoerle, at the NSRA rodeo finals in North Platte and later married in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 6, 1996. To this union, two daughters were born, Madeline Jo and Cj Leann. Together they have grown their ranch, and owned & operated Mill-West Insurance. Reg also developed & patented the VRTS System (an attachment that enhances v-rakes).
Reggie was a straight forward, determined, and a very hard-working man. He enjoyed going to cattle sales, especially this fall when he and Madeline traveled together buying cattle for the feedlot. His hard work and determination grew the crop insurance business, he and Cj traveled together, got lost a few times, but had fun. Last summer with Reg’s vision and the help of Cj and Madeline, the expansion process began to build the feedlot to 5000 head. He loved his family above all else, and loved teaching Madeline and Cj the ins and outs of cattle and insurance. He loved spending time with his children and granddaughters.
Those left to cherish his memory is his wife, Tamara “Tami” Roth of Wolbach; children, Madeline Jo & Cj Leann Roth, both of Wolbach, Amanda (Jon) Long of Niobrara, Jesse Roth of St. Paul, Nebraska and Emily (Casey) Borchers of Powell, Wyoming; grandchildren, Rylee, Jaden, & Jordan.
