H. Mike Reed, of Gloucester City, age 66

 

Home is where your treasure is. There, your heart is also. Harry “Mike” Reed spent his entire life in Gloucester City, in fact… the same house. From home he emphatically cheered on the Ohio State Buckeyes, The Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. Obits

A single thread is weak but many threads woven together make a strong fabric. Over the years Mike had fought hard. Pain is like a heavy stone. It’s just too much to carry alone. The strength woven into the tapestry of his family allowed Mike to grow in grace and in age. He was a great guy, brother and true friend.

On Thursday January 2, 2020 Mike’s circle of days ended just as they had begun. At home, in Gloucester, surrounded by his family at the age of 66.

Mike had worked for the Gloucester City Department of Public Works for his entire career. He had been a member of the Sportsmen Athletic Club and played in the American Legion Shuffle Bowl.

Mike will never be too far gone for a memory. He is survived by his sisters Diane & her husband Glenn Thomas and Denise & her husband Jack Barron. He is also survived and will be sadly missed by his nieces & nephews; Glenn & his wife Stacy Thomas, Harry & his wife Christine Thomas, Shannon & her husband Adam Carpenter, Brooke Barron and Katie & her husband Tim Miller as well as his many great nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends, neighbors, Sportsmen AC members and the shuffle bowl league are invited to join the Reed family and yell OH----I--O, OH---I--O! We’ll be sharing our heartfelt memories and gossiping about the Phillies, Eagles… and the Boston Bruins on Thursday morning, January 2, 2020, between 9:00 am and 11:00 am at Creran Celebration Etherington & Creran Funeral Homes 700 Powell St. Gloucester City where a funeral ceremony will begin at 11:00 am. As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Heartland Hospice 1385 Chews Landing Rd. Laurel Springs, NJ 08021 www.heartlandhospice.com#crerancelebration #heartfelt
