Mealy (Dad) is survived by his wife of seventy-four years, Velma, his
son Bill Reed and wife Betty Jo, his son Huey Reed and wife Penny, his
daughter Sue Corbin and husband Steve, eleven grandchildren,
twenty-six great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.
Dad was born in Weirsdale, Fl during the great depression. Working in
the orange groves with his Dad, he and his siblings were too busy to
know just how bad the times were. He said we always had food on the
table and indoor plumbing! He met his wife Velma at a Weirsdale high
school basketball game. Dad was very active in family life, he coached
little league baseball in Belleview and was a Boy Scout leader for
Troop 113 in Weirsdale. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and
running crab traps in Lake George with his boys. He especially loved
babying his little princess, Sue! Dad and Mom did everything together,
working in the family fruit business Reeds Fruit Co, traveling, and
raising three children. Through their actions, they taught us to
always be kind, and helpful.
Dad requested his funeral was to be for family his immediate family
only. In lieu of sending flowers, please make a donation to your
church or a favorite charity.
