James Willard Reed,  was born on December 15, 1938 in Chatom, Alabama and went to his heavenly home to his Savior and his Sweetheart on January 28, 2021.  He was 82 years old.

He is survived by his treasured daughters:  Robyn Reed Reynolds (Errol), Rachael Reed Williams (Mark), Ashleigh Reed Fitzpatrick (Kevin); beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren:  Matthew Reynolds (Janna), Catie Lundy (Zach), Abbey Reynolds, Reed Williams (Cole), Tyler Williams, Forrest Fitzpatrick (Kyla), Mason Fitzpatrick, Raegyn Reynolds, Finn Reynolds, Rocco Lundy, and Arabella Fitzpatrick, and numerous nieces, nephews, and family whom he loved dearly.

He is preceded in death by his devoted wife of 60 years, Virginia Ann Cooper Reed, his parents, Clayton and Willard Reed, and sister, Janet Elizabeth Reed Dixon (Roy).

Also known as Jimmy by friends, he had retired from working in the trucking and tire business for over 40 years and resided in Millry, Alabama.  As a member of Millry Baptist Church and a former deacon, he loved and served the Lord with all his heart.


He never met a stranger, and once you did meet Jimmy Reed, you instantly became old friends.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. 


Due to COVID-19 concerns and health-related circumstances, a family graveside celebration of life service will be held on a date to be determined.
