    Notes 
    • His early childhood was spent in Raetihi where his father had a carrying business between Raetihi and Ohahuni. They moved to Wanganui in time for Reese to attend the Technical High School there. Reese was very keen on sport to his father's joy. He played rugby for the school teams and did well with his boxing, spending all his spare time practicing with the punch ball. After leaving school ha had a number of jobs including a period with the Public Works Department on the west coast of the South Island where he met a young lady and they got married. Things didn't work out and they parted and she went home to her family in Wellington. Reese moved home to Masterton. Then World War II, Reese was away for four years. When he returned after the War he married Noreen Elizabeth McLeod daughter of his mother's half-brother Douglas McLeod. Reese and Noreen's first child was named Stanley Lorimer Dawson after a close friend who had been killed in the War.
      Reese and Noreen had separated some years prior to his death on 31 August 1991.
