Ken passed away Monday, November 29, 2021 at his home in Allegan surrounded by family.
He was born August 6, 1957 in Plainwell, the son of Adolph and Madeline (Risner) Reed. Ken worked as a logger, at Allegan Tubular and B & G Custom Works until his retirement in 2016. Prior to and after retiring Ken enjoyed working at the Swan Lake Store which was more of a hobby than a job.
Ken always enjoyed spending time with his kids and granddaughters. He was very united with his siblings and his mom. He was a very caring and humble man who always would help out. As a younger man he liked hunting raccoons and deer. Ken was active in the Allegan Gym until his knees started bothering him. On July 11, 1981 at home in Shelbyville, he married Dorothea Pinks who survives.
Also surviving are his children, Amy Reed of Martin, Ken Paul (Melina) Reed of Otsego and Anthony Reed of Allegan; grandchildren, Taylor, Kennedi, Abigale, Nyla and Sophia; his mother, Madeline; siblings, Clovis, Clarence, Sue, Wanda, Jo, Jerry, Ruth, Donna, Doug, John and Eric; many nieces and nephews and special friends Gary, Steve and Mike from the Swan Lake Store.
He was preceded in death by his father.
