Celebrating the life of

Regis Feathers

July 03, 1944 - September 03, 2023

Regis Feathers


Regis “Reggie” Dale Feathers, 79, passed from this life on Sunday, September 3, 2023 at his beloved home on the Forest River in Savannah, Georgia after a valiant battle with cancer. He was born on July 3, 1944 in the mountains of Altoona, Pennsylvania.

Reggie graduated from Hollidaysburg High School and resided in the Cross Keys area. He loved leather jackets, fast cars, rock-n-roll music, and playing drums in a local band. Over 57 years ago, he met the love of his life, Sherry. Once their paths crossed, it was truly a matter of weeks before they married and forever referred to each other as “roommates.”

Reggie’s early career in retail took his young family to many places – New York, Delaware, Maryland, Florida, Alabama, and finally landed in Savannah in the 1970s. They raised their children in the Windsor Forest neighborhood. Reggie enjoyed time with his family at the beach, fishing, and attending NASCAR races. Dinner was often followed up by one of Reggie’s jam sessions on the drums or guitar, singing the songs of some of his favorite artists like Elvis Presley, Oakridge Boys, Kenny Rogers, Alabama, and the Gatlin Brothers. 

Later, Reggie and Sherry bought and ran The Holland House, where they made many friends and served quality breakfast and lunch, cash only, for more than 20 years. Anyone who entered those doors would see Reggie at the register, dressed in all black, laughing and joking with customers, often with a grandchild sitting with him on the counter. Even after being in the restaurant business for so long, one of Reggie’s favorite past times was weekly dinners out to eat, where he would keep a close eye on customer service – making sure the unsweet half of his iced tea was at the bottom, his steak was cooked just right, and his servers always had a smile on their face even if it was caused by one of his infamous jokes.

After selling The Holland House, Reggie started volunteering at the Habersham YMCA, which eventually lead to a full -time opportunity. He was the first face many Savannahians would see when they came to work out in the wee hours of the morning. His passion was fundraising for the YMCA annual campaign, and he was often the top fundraiser each year. Reggie’s last “job” was supporting his son at the grill at Roly Poly. Through the years, Reggie made many lifelong friendships and a lasting impact on the Savannah community.

In addition to his love for nice cars, he enjoyed spending time in his boat on the deep water of the Forest River, where he and Sherry built their forever home. Reggie loved having all of his children and grandchildren down at his dock and playing in the water. Their grandchildren could always count on having many great toys at Mimi and PapPap’s house -- a custom-built playhouse on the creek, four-wheelers, trampolines, water slides, you name it. Their house has been the site for many happy gatherings and celebrations.

Reggie loved vacations with his family – annual Thanksgiving Disney trips, celebrating his birthday week at Tybee Island, and many trips back to Pennsylvania. His most recent and last family trip was back to his hometown and the surrounding areas, where he was able to show his children and grandchildren the places that influenced his early life.

Above all, Reggie was a man of faith and family. He read his bible daily. He loved his wife, children and grandchildren more than anything in the world. As a PapPap, he was there for every milestone, every game, every fundraiser, every holiday, even the   made-up ones. It would be difficult to keep up with all of Sherry’s races, but he was there for the big ones. He was so proud of them all. Reggie loved life and celebrated everything.

Reggie is preceded in death by his father, Regis Bernard Feathers and his mother Frances Elizabeth Feathers, both of Altoona, Pennsylvania. He is survived by his younger brother, Lary Feathers (Eileen), his loving wife Sherry Feathers, his children Regina Feathers Cochran (Kevin), Tim Feathers (Brynn Grant) and Jennifer Feathers Haddad (Joe), his grandchildren, Madison Feathers Aldridge (Rufus), Timmy Feathers, Amelia Haddad, Emaline Haddad, Scotland Mitchell, Gracen Mitchell and Grant Mitchell; one great-grandchild, Asher Mitchell, and his best friend, his Weimaraner, Thor.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer Center or any charity of your choice.

A visitation will be from 5:00 until 6:30, Thursday, September, 14, 2023, followed by a celebration of life at 6:30, at Fox and Weeks Hodgson Chapel with Derek White officiating.

I’m so sorry Sherry.

- Karen Dove Barr, Savannah, GA

So very sad to learn of this. Reggie, and Sherry, had such a great impact on my young adult life starting out and still have many lasting memories. I know them from the retail business and will probably always remember the code LIPTZVHRDF-; Reggie drilled it into me and I've never forgotten it. I remember the many times fishing together and the times at different properties whether vacationing at Tybee or working on rentals. Reggie was a great mentor and friend and such a positive influence. Thank you Feathers family for sharing him. Love you buddy. Many prayers and condolences.

What a blessing to have met and connected so wonderful with both Reggie and Sherry when enjoying a trip together in Scotland when our paths crossed in the summer of 2019! Reggie was a ball of fun and fire -- only matched perfectly by his amazing wife. His smile would mega-light a room. I loved listening to his stories of such a blessed life, and how much he loved his family, friends, and all he had been a part of. My heart is sad with Reggie's passing; yet, I know he has gained his wings for Glory and that provides a measure of solace during this time. Condolences to Sherry, family members, loved ones, and all.

- Dick Cutchall, Gilbert , Arizona

So sorry to hear of this loss. I remember so vividly his call to tell us about Regina’s accident so many years ago and how they would throw biscuits over the fence for us night shift L/D nurses from the Holland house. He loved his family and no doubt has left a gaping hole that will never be filled. My heart goes out as you navigate the days ahead without him.

- Lori Hecker, Savannah, Georgia

I will miss Reggie, he was the best. The best husband, father, grandfather, coworker, joke teller (some weren’t that funny but the delivery was great), best greeter, best fundraiser, best smiler and the absolute best friend a person could have. I had the privilege of working with Reggie at the Y, and you could always count on Reggie to be on point with any and all tasks that he performed. God speed my friend, until we meet again!

- Bucky Johnson , Savannah , Ga

- Jimmy waters, Effingham , Georgia

I didn't know Reggie very well, but I certainly knew his smile and joyful spirit. I had the pleasure of seeing him on Wednesdays at Roly Poly, where he would welcome everyone like we were the best customers he'd ever had. He would be behind the counter and pop his head up with a big smile to say hello. Sherry, Tim, Brynn, Madison, Scotland, Gracen, Grant, and family, I am sorry for the loss of such a wonderful man. May peace be with you and your happy times together bring you comfort.

- Lynn Odom, Savannah, GA

Sending our deepest sympathy to you all. Prayers for peace and comfort.

- Bryner Family, Blairsville, Georgia

My heart aches for you all. When I came to you as a scared and a little insecure nineteen-year-old who had just moved across an ocean, leaving my family for the first time, you all welcomed me with open arms. From the start you made me feel like one in your family, creating such a safe space for me, and I don’t think you ever realized for important this was and is to me. Reggie played a big part in that. He was never afraid to include me in his jokes and that more than anything made me feel like I belonged. I will forever cherish the memories of holidays spent at Mimi and Pappap’s house, eating good food in good company. I’m so glad I met you all. Since then Reggie’s hump day updates on Facebook have regularly put a smile on my face and that is how I will remember him: As someone who put smiles on people’s faces. He was truly a kind person and I’m so glad I got to meet him. I think about you all often, especially now, and I’m sending you all my love, Alice

- Alice Herdenberg, Malmö, Sweden

We are so very sorry for your loss. Reggie was one of a kind, truly bearing a servant’s heart. Whenever I saw him he was always smiling, friendly & always had a joke or two. Forever in our hearts & will be praying for healing & comfort.

- Molly, Ethan & Eric Cohen, Savannah, Ga

My condolences to the Feathers Family, it was a pleasure to be a sales partner in the days of the “Holland House” and getting to know the family! I’ll always remember on the day of 9/11 and being at the restaurant having a conversation with Reggie about what was going on with our world. He was a GREAT man! Hugs and prayers sent to the entire family! ❤️
