Reed lived an extraordinary life filled with hobbies and adventure.  He was always eager to learn something new and to share his knowledge (and tools) with his family and friends.  He was a genuine person with steadfast morals and a fierce believer in realizing your dreams.  His presence will be missed by many but we know we can always find him when we look to the stars.
