We are devastated to learn of the loss of our classmate. He was a very special person in our class. Although he was quiet, he had a wonderful smile that made all of us glad to be around him at our annual Springboro High School class reunions and other times as well. We will all miss him. Hugs to his family. We are sorry that we didn't know about his passing or we would all have been there for all of you. We knew something was wrong when he didn't make our reunion last July. We called and called his cell but never got an answer.

My heart & sympathies are with the family during this most-difficult time. I am
SO sorry for your loss:(
Reece was a wonderful man.
I live in Atlanta, but my father, Roy Dugger, was a horse-shoe pitching friend of Reece’s & he spoke of him highly.....and often. The group of “pitching” friends is such a wonderful group & I know they will forever be changed by the empty spot left, by their “ringer” of a friend.
My dad also talks fondly about the time that Reece had my dad, brother & my nieces out to the farm for a hay ride & bon fire. It truly was a precious memory for them all!
Thank you for sharing the gift of him with others. His kindness rippled out in ways that you may never know, but I’m grateful to get to share at least one such story.
Sending hugs from Atlanta, Ga.

Reese and his family were longtime neighbors . Reese shared the love of farming and attended many of our family outings. I will always remember the hayrides , Reese’s red pickups and love of horseshoes. Rest In Peace Reese.
