John was born in Kileen, Texas, on Jan. 13, 1955, the son of Frederick Maxwell Reed and Ruby Arlene Lougee.

John was a shop foreman at Jefferson Paving Inc. for more than 20 years.

He is survived by his wife, Carol (Hetrick) Reed; one sister, Deborah Boddorf (David) of Punxsutawney; three nephews, Joshua Hamilton of Pittsburgh, Michael Reed of Strattanville and David Reed of Pittsburgh; and one great-nephew, Derek Reed of Strattanville.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, George “Randy” Reed.
