Apparently, Terach was 145 years old when Avraham went on his "lech-l'cha" trip, but I have no good source for this.

Thank you, R'Alex! And for the lazy among us (like me), here's a link: chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/8175/showrashi/true#v1132 – msh210 Dec 14 '10 at 21:57

Yitzchok was 145 years old when Reuvain was born.

Yaakov got married at 84

Yitzchok was 144

Reuvain was born a year later to Leah when Yitchok was 145 - Or Yitzchak was 145 when Simon was born. Reuven birth: 14 Kislev Shimon birth: 28 Teveis

That probably depends on whether Reuvain's birth was before or after Peasch. – Isaac Moses Dec 13 '10 at 22:46
