My question is since he was listed as Reb, does this mean that he
was a Rabbi?
If he was a Rabbi,how would I go about finding out more information on him?

Dear Marilyn,

No, "Reb" does not mean Rabbi. "Reb" is simply Yiddish for "Mr."

If the deceased was actually a rabbi he would probably have been
described as "Ha-Rav ." (The Rabbi ) or as "Moreinu Rabbeinu"
("our teacher, our Rabbi") followed by his name.
