Reese graduated from the University of Alabama in 1964 and served as a Junior Naval Officer aboard The USS Forrestal for three years.

Reese was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church and served on the Vestry and was a Eucharistic Minister and Lay Reader. He also volunteered at the Old City Cemetery, Lynchburg Grows and spent many years coaching youth football.

Reese was an extremely hard working man, a loyal friend, a wonderful father, the life of the party, a great dancer, and an avid Crimson Tide fan. Roll Tide Roll!

Most importantly, he was an amazing caregiver and an extremely dedicated husband to his wife Sally whom he loved very much.

The family will be having a small family memorial this spring.

Those who wish to make a memorial in his honor may do so to Lynchburg Grows.
