Thomas Reed Memorial Fund

Tom Reed was born in Attica, Michigan on January 22, 1934 and died in Holland, Michigan on November 14, 2016. He lived in Lapeer, Michigan pretty much his whole life where he was known as a respected business man as the owner of Reed's Appliance store, a community leader as the president of the Chamber of Commerce, a devoted husband to his wife Virginia and a loving father. Anyone that knew Tom also knew that he was passionate about playing golf. Throughout his many years he practiced the game tireless, played in many leagues and won many tournaments and championships.

Tom loved living life to the fullest through all the activities he enjoyed. He was not one to express his feelings very often but his family and friends always knew how important they were to him because of the way he supported and spent time with them. He will be missed by all those who know him. (Please scroll down for more.)


Tom leaves behind his beautiful bride of 63 years, his three children Tom Jr., Tim & Terri and six grandchildren Derek, Denae, Brandon, Benjamin, Amy and Brittney. Tom Jr. continues his father's legacy as the owner and proprietor of Reed's Appliance in Lapeer. His son Tim is the pastor of Fairway Church in Naples, FL and his daughter Terri is a caring counsellor who helps people in need in Holland, MI. Tom was loved and adored by all of his grandchildren and they will always remember the times they spent with him on the lake swimming, fishing, boating and jetskiing.

All of us in his family are proud of him and we are privileged to create this memorial fund in his honor to continue his desire to help and support people in their lives, education and growth in their faith of the Lord Jesus Christ.
