Obituary for Hedley "Eddie" Lewis Reid

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Hedley Lewis Reid of Spaniards Bay. August 9, 1938 - May 12, 2022 age 83 after a lengthy illness.

He leaves to mourn his wife Bernice of 57 years (nee Oates); 5 children: Michelle Reid-Loveless (Ralph), Roger Reid (Yvonne), Dale Walker (Paul), Greg Reid (Wanda Whalen) and Amanda Reid (Scott Billard); 11 Grandchildren: Gregory Cook, Bradley Cook, Amber Cook, Alexander Walker, Riley Fewer, Ryan Fewer, Joel Fewer, Kyle Reid, Katie Reid, Sarah Reid & Barry Reid and his Aunt Effie Vokey.

Hedley is pre-deceased by his parents Hedley and Maude Reid and his siblings: Lorraine, Mary, Jack & Irene.

He was named after his father but everyone called him Ed or Eddie. He was a true lover of animals always had a dog by his side. His horse Velvet that he taught to bow, shake hands and take off his hat. He was always outside busy doing something whether it was under the hood of a car, driving a tractor, plowing a potato field, saddling up Velvet for a ride. He wasn’t one to sit around at home, always busy doing something.
