Larry Dean Reed was born May 27, 1960 at Schofield Military Hospital on the island of Oahu in Wahiawa, Hawaii. He grew up in Wendell, Idaho for most of his life, attending Wendell High School and enlisting in the Army after graduating in 1979. He served his country as member of the Military Police.
Larry lived a very rich life, full of adventure on the weekends. He had worked his way up in the milk industry to lead a long-term career as a supervisor.
Larry enjoyed the outdoors all of his life. He often shared stories of camping and fishing all over Idaho. His most fond memories were with his son, panning for gold in the forests of Pine, Idaho, and with his wife after their marriage in Las Vegas on September 14, 2011.
Larry was a great person and a genuine friend, a loving husband, an exceptional father, a caring grandfather, and fine member of his community.
He passed unexpectedly in his home in Jerome, Idaho on April 20, 2022. He is survived by his only son, Dakota Reed; his mother and stepfather, Jodi and John Wert; his sister, Jonie Wininger; his two brothers, Allen and Kevin Young; his wife, Connie Reed; and a long list of nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
His memorial service will be held at Farnsworth Mortuary on 1343 S. Lincoln Ave. on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at 2:00PM. All who knew Larry and grieve his passing are welcome to attend and share stories, but his family will not be taking any memorial donations or hosting a wake after the funeral.
