Jon E. Reed passed away suddenly but peacefully on Aug. 26, 2010. Born and raised in Minnesota, Jon moved to Juneau to be closer to family in 1980. During the summer he worked for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and recently had made Florida his winter home. Jon loved to fish, hunt and play golf.
He was preceded in death by his father, Gilbert Reed, and brother, Dan Reed, both of Long Lake, Minn.
Jon is survived by his mother, Rose Marie Good and stepfather Gale Good; his brother Tim Reed of Delano, Minn.; sister Cyn Buehner of Bend, Ore.; sister Dawn Olson of LIttleton, Colo.; numerous nieces and nephews; and very good friends Victor Voit, Tom Fenton and others too numerous to name.
According to Jon's wishes there will be no formal funeral services. However, there will be a celebration of his life from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. Sept. 4 at Skater's Cabin. His ashes will be interred at a later date in Long Lake, Minn. next to his father and his brother.
Donations may be made in Jon's name to Juneau Hospice and Home Care, 419 6th St., Juneau, AK 99801.
