  1. John,

    I delivered Meals on Wheels to you several times and I was always amazed at how friendly, upbeat and appreciative you were even though it was obviously a struggle for you. May you Rest In Peace and be free of all your pain and suffering.

  3. Ron & I will miss you John “Philly” Reed. The many road trips to baseball, basketball and football games. Your wonderful sense of humor and always being kind. Cathy will miss our music trivia on road trips. Rest In Peace John, we know you are pain free and no longer sick. Love Pudge & Cathy

  4. I have known John since we were children. John was a kind and caring man. My mother and Janet grew up in Dayton, OH together. From the 70’s to the mid 90’s my family came to Boyertown every September. I will miss talking to John. He is out of pain and at peace and in a better place.

  5. I can’t believe your gone. As we were passing the house today my daughter beeped then I noticed the for sale sign. We looked it up and found you had passed away. I will always remember the fun times in the fields and especially your birthday when we drew an ATV on your cake. I’ll remember also your dad, mom and aunt Marion. I’m sorry I did not know you were ill. I would have stopped more often. Rest peacefully John. See you on the flip side.
