Arrangements by Dillinger Funeral Home.From Anthony Reed: "It is with much sadness that we share the following information with you all:
On Sunday morning August 31st, Troy Dee Reed passed away. Visitation was held at Dillenger's Funeral Home in Newport, Arkansas, on Tuesday evening, Sept 2nd, with Family visitation from 5-6, followed by Friend visitation from 6-8. The funeral was Wednesday morning at 10:00 at the Oakland Hill Free Will Baptist Church, near Bradford, Arkansas.
We had a wonderful 21 gun salute and a beautiful rendition of TAPS by the local honor guard.
On Saturday, August 30, Dad played 18 holes of golf in the morning and attended a Reed Family Reunion from 11:00 - 4:00, then went back and played 18 more holes before sundown. He was really enjoying his retirement and golfed every day, except Sunday, and he would occasionally slip away after lunch for a couple of hours on Sunday. His last day was just a small example of how great he was living." - ALR
