John Reed Death, Obituary – This information is being shared with you despite the fact that my heart is heavy. A legendary figure has been lost to both our community and the surrounding area as a result of Mr. John Reed’s passing away last night. Because he was a pioneer in the effort to assist his community, the death of this man has left the People of Action in a state of mourning that is indescribable.
It was on November 16, 1961, in Fountain Springs, at a facility that was at the time known as the Ashland State General Hospital that he was brought into the world. His parents, Walter Reed Bierowski and Rita McIntyre Bierowski, both passed away at some point in the recent past. Mount Carmel Area Senior High School was where he completed his secondary education.
Yard jockey was the last job he held before retiring from Autoneum Automotive of North America in Bloomsburg, where he worked for many years. John was an exceptionally brave and stalwart man in his day. In addition to being a devoted family member, he was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was a fervent follower of Jesus Christ, had a profound fondness for animals, and was an enthusiastic enthusiast of the great outdoors.
John was a member of the LCBC Church located in Bloomsburg. Beth Stecker Reed, his wife of 34 years, his sons Evan Reed and his wife Kendall of Catawissa and Hayden Reed and his fiancee Kailee Gulley of Scottsdale, Arizona, his sister Mary Carol Bechtel of Ashland, his brother Robert Reed and his wife Gretchen of Marion Heights, and his grandchildren Paisley and Brantley Jurinko are among the members of his family who have survived. His parents passed away before he did, and he never saw them again.
REED, I PRAY THAT YOU WILL FOREVER SLEEP IN PEACE
