Obituary for Gary L. "Speedy" Reed

Gary L. "Speedy" Reed, age 67, of Caldwell, Ohio, went to be with the Lord Saturday, January 9, 2016, surrounded by his family at Summit Acres Nursing Home in Caldwell. He was born May 12, 1948, in Zanesville, son of the late Edsel O. and Evelyn Nadine Wickham Reed. He was a graduate of Caldwell High School, and in his early years, he built silos and worked in oil fields. He retired from Island Aseptics in Byesville following 23 years of service. Gary attended the Caldwell Church of the Nazarene, and he was a diehard fan of the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. He loved hanging out with his coffee buddies at Arbys.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by one son, Adam Lee Reed on October 29, 2012; and his father and mother-in-law, Rex and Shirley Leach.

Surviving are his wife of 44 years, Penny Leach Reed; one daughter, Missy (Richard) Slater of Caldwell; one brother, Michael O. (Joy) Reed of Caldwell; three sisters, Brenda O. (Bob) Miller, Janet L. (Jerry) Martin, and Penny D. (Perry) Brown, all of Caldwell; one grandson, Collin Banks of Caldwell; and several nieces and nephews.
