Regner held the Palatine Township post from 1993 until 2005. He served in the Illinois Senate from 1973 to 1980 and in the Illinois House from 1967 to 1972.

"I couldn't sit still," Regner told the Daily Herald earlier this year. "I was involved in many different things."

Regner was an Army veteran and served as a 1980 state coordinator for Ronald Reagan's campaign for president.

Regner died at his home in Barrington, according to his obituary.

State Rep. David McSweeney, a Barrington Hills Republican who served as a Palatine Township trustee with Regner, said he visited with Regner several months ago and the former state lawmaker was keeping close track of political news.

"As usual, Dave had a lot of opinions on current events," McSweeney said.

A visitation will be held Friday at 3 p.m. at Davenport Family Funeral Home, 149 W. Main St. in Barrington. The funeral will be held Saturday at 11 a.m.
