Brother Gerald B. Reed

Brothers and Sisters,

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that yesterday morning, our much loved brother, Jerry Reed, was tragically killed in a car accident in Lago Vista. The accident was a head on collision. The other driver fell asleep at the wheel.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his two sons, Reno and Micah, and his granddaughter.

Regrettably,
President Magee

Here are some photos in memory that have trickled in since the news…
