It is with deep sadness that we, the family and friends of David F. Reed (Reeder), announce his passing on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at Baystate Medical center in Springfield. Dave was born November 23, 1958 to the late Franklin Reed and Dorothy Reed Converse and her late husband Clark Converse. Preceded in death by his two brothers Scott and Rick. He was a loving father to Lili and Cici; leaving them behind and his loving companion Sandy Sheldon and sons Daniel and Scott and families. Survived by his favorite uncle Chuck Thurbur and many cousins. Also survived by his former spouses Jennifer Urekew Reed, Eileen Francisco Reed and son Robert Francisco.

Dave went his entire life loving sports, while in school and in recent years with his work for Monson Legion Baseball with fellow coach and best friend Steve Tripp. He was adored and revered by his players and it was a huge part of his life.  Besides spending time with his girls, Dave also loved the beach, playing men’s softball, golfing with his buddies, and, his all time favorite, gardening.

A private service will be held with close family and friends. There will be a celebration of life held for Dave at Amvets, 2150 Main Street, Three Rivers on Friday, May 3, at 6pm open to all family and friends who would like to attend.
