Larry Reed (12-23-20) service 1-2-2021
Larry Dean Reed, of Savannah, departed this life on Wednesday, Dec. 23, at the age of 77 years, 11 months and 13 days.
He was born in Lexington, Kentucky on Jan. 10, 1943, the son of the late Fred Reed and Daisy Bowling Blount.
Larry served in the United States Army during the Vietnam war receiving the Bronze Star. He retired from PCA, where he was a machine tender, after 39 years with the company. Larry was an active member of Mt. Hermon Baptist Church, where he taught Sunday school, sang in the choir, and cooked for the high school sports teams. He loved old hot rods and muscle cars, the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing; but most of all he loved the Lord Jesus Christ and looked forward to spending eternity with Him.
