Listen to this obituary

Terry Lee Reed, Sr., 68, transformed from this life to his life in eternity on Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2022 from NMMC after battling Pneumonia due to Covid. Terry was born in Macon, MS. on March 1, 1953 to the late Charles Alton Reed and Margaret Ann Morton Reed.  He married Cathy Ann Brown Reed on Jan. 11, 1971 and she survives. Terry worked in maintenance all his life working for EmCor for 8 years, Holnan Concrete Industries in Artesia for over 20 years and Michelin-Viox in Tuscaloosa several years.  An adventurous soul, Terry loved the outdoors fishing and hunting.  He loved to travel.  A die hard Ole Miss fan, he followed the Rebels faithfully in football and baseball.  He was always better than the Coaches and didn’t hesitate to share his dismay with many of their calls. While working at Holnan, he received his Associates Degree in Business Management from East Miss. Community College.  He was a patriotic American, a die- hard Republican and never faltered in his loyalty to his Country. He loved his boys and their families and enjoyed every second he spent with them.

A service celebrating his life will be held at 5 PM Saturday, Feb. 26, 2022 at the Sadie Holland Memorial Chapel at Holland Funeral Directors-Tupelo with Rev. Rob Gill officiating. Visitation will be from 4 PM-service time on Sat. only at the funeral home.  For those unable to attend, the service may be viewed at www.hollandfuneraldirectors.com/Livestreaming.
