I have worked with Ried for 3 years (2009-2012) and I can say he was a nice guy: smart, polite, funny, handsome and always smiling.
My deepest condolances to his girls, his parents and relatives.

The Kislia family sends our thoughts, prayers and ALL the love in our hearts to you all at this time. We loved Ried and were always excited to see him because we could always look forward to being greeted with that huge, charming smile and sincere bear hug that just made ya feel so good and so happy! One Ried moment that was consistently shared in our family and always brought my Dad to tears of laughter:
Ried attended a Miami Dolphins football game with my family. At the tailgate, a fan for the opposing team approached the tailgate & belligerently taunted everyone, over & over. Well, Ried decided enough was enough. That gentle giant that he was, walked over to the belligerent fan, calmly wrapped his arms around him w/ a big bear hug, picked the guy up as if he was lifting a piece of paper, slowly turned in the opposite direction, set the man down & told him to go on and enjoy the game, all with a big smile. The belligerent fan fell silent in a state of shock. hahaha My dad cried laughing every time he told that beloved story! So many other great memories of Ried, like building legos with my son, who talked about it for months after....Ried, thank you for all the kindness, smiles and genuine feeling of acceptance that you always gave to all of us. Looking forward to seeing you again in Heaven, but wishing you didn't leave us all so soon. Love and sympathy to all of his family & friends.

I met Ried at a Freethinking function in the early 2000s' and we hit it off right away. He was a gentle giant that would give you his shirt if you needed it. He even picked me up a few times to attend various science-oriented and freethought functions. He appeared on my radio program and he was a wonder to listen to. Ried and I would have disagreements about whether or not photons have mass. I think of him often. My condolences to all those he loved and those that loved him. He will be sorely missed.

I will choose to remember the light of love in Reid's eyes when he looked at you, Lisa when I first met him.
I will remember how he smiled so lovingly and hugged the kids so tightly.
I will know forever the happiness he brought to all of you.

Courage, comfort, healing and loving memories are what I wish for all of the family and friends who knew and loved Reid in this time of loss.

I'll remember Ried for being the great co-worker he was. Humble, dependable, smart, never a complaint, and a real pleasure to work with. My fondest memory with Ried will always be that of sharing a game of chess with him even though I could never come close to beating him. Ried had that special quality of making the experience count rather than the win or loss column of the game. We miss you Ried, God bless you.
