It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Roy Martin Reid on April 20, 2023, at the age of 94.
Born in Six Mile, SC, he was the son of the late Furman and Etta Vickery Reid.
Roy served his country in the Navy and Air Force and later retired from Michelin Tire Company. He was a member of Washington Ave. Baptist Church.
Roy had become quite the jokester in his latter years. He always had a joke for whoever he met. He was a medicine man of sorts and had a remedy for whatever ailment you had. He loved being outdoors and gardening as long as his health allowed.
We are truly blessed to have had him in our lives all these years and he will be greatly missed.
In addition to his parents, Roy was preceded in death by his loving wife of 70 years, Juanita Culbertson Reid; daughter Diane Cater;four brothers; and three sisters.
He is survived by two children, Marty Reid and Cindy Lee; nine grandchildren; one sister, Lou King.
A graveside service will be held Thursday, April 27, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. at Greenville Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the charity of one’s choice in Roy’s honor.
