Thank you everyone for your kind words about my dad. He was the best dad a daughter could ever wish for. He taught me so many important life lessons one I ll always cherish "you can never have too many friends" and I never heard him say a negative thing about anyone! What a great example. I'll miss him terribly but know he's happy now & got his wish to be in heaven with Moma. I love you Daddy and can't wait to see you again one day

Courtney, Russell , Jennifer and Marcia. Your Dad gave me and 2 other 15 year old our first "real job" at the mill in Bernice. I'm not sure who talked him into it, but he was willing to give us a chance as he knew it would be only a summer job! I'm sure he taught us more about hard work than we had effect on productivity at the mill. The first morning he asked as we stood there, " Who has a Chauffeur license"? One hand went up, Mr. Reed said "Good, get that wheel barrow and drive it up to the planner"! Next was, "Who can run a front end loader , another hand went up, " Good he said, take this shovel and load that sawdust on the conveyor"! He then looked at me and said , " Gillum, walk with me, we are going to the Green Chain"! The rest was a total education on hard work and example on why to stay in school, I will never forget that summer or his kindness!

Russell, I feel so honored to have had met your dad and for him to part of the one of the best times in my life. We will talk about those fishing trips forever.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I worked for Mike for 10 years at the chip mill in Bernice. He was a very kind and generous man. I have too many fond memories to list here. My condolences to the Reed Family.
