Survivors include one son, Eric Reed of Peterstown, WV; one daughter, Tammy Dobbins and husband Jerel of Radford, VA; two brothers, Michael Reed of Princeton, WV, and Charles “Bill” Reed of Willowton, WV; six grandchildren, Danielle “Nikki” Williams, Amanda Lester, Lacy Reed, Jesse Collins, Caitlin Reed, and Emily Reed; and six great grandchildren, who fondly called him silly papaw, Reagan, Griffin, Luke, Rory, Reuben, and Esmond.
