I met Reed through David and Susan Bourgeois, and celebrated lots of holidays and family gatherings with him during the past 30 years. He was always fun to be around. Loved his laugh. He will surely be missed by all. Prayers for all the family

I met Big Reed aka as my ex father in law in 1993. He called me a Yankee. He always called me a Yankee, gave big warm hugs, could tease you and turn around and be the sweetest person in the room. He always treated me like family, like I belonged. He was a great man.
