BOARDMAN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – John Thomas Reed, Sr. went to be with the Lord Friday, January 24, 2020 at Greenbriar Care Center in Boardman following an extended illness.

In his younger years, he was an avid bowler, participating in as many as four leagues a week. He loved gardening and old timey music. His greatest joys, however, were watching his son, John, play baseball and granddaughter, Clara dance.
