Condolences and Prayers for the Family. I had the Honor of meeting John many years ago playing softball in Hanover, later down the line I became an umpire and John was mentor, what a great teacher, I partnered with him for almost 2 seasons, always looked forward to working with him. Thank You John for teaching me the ways and your understanding. You will be truly missed my friend !! What a great gentleman ......

My Deepest Sympathies for the Reed Family and Friends….
My thing with John was Snowmobile racing with Yamaha Vmax4’s…
He knew His poopo about them saying it as nicely as I could here…
The phones calls over the past 18 years or so were endless with him, night and day , weekends no matter , I know people here knew Him better than I but man Iam so going to miss this very knowledgeable Guy and His calls …. Hitting me hard about that , I just can’t believe it came to an end , he would call and say what did you do ? How did you do ? You did what…????
He will be very missed… ????

Our heart goes out to the entire family for the sudden loss. We met him through Trailways about 15 years ago. Justin and his friendship had grown over the last few years between racing the sleds and Motorama. Hold on to those memories. Just know when you see those Cardinals that it is your loved one letting you know that they are there watching over you. God bless you all. John as Jess said ride those sleds through the clouds. Until we met again.
