So sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed. I remember my first visit to the obgyn was with him. He told me to just pretend I was at the beach. It helped as a young woman but as I got older I joked with him about that and told him it wasn't a beach trip. He laughed. He always took care if me and I will always remember his kindness and warmth. I will miss you. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

God Bless, he was a wonderful person and doctor. I was searching for him for my pregnancy and just found out this sad news. My prayer and thoughts will continue to be with your family..Great MAN, sadly missed...Tara

I was sadden to hear of Dr. Reed's passing. He was my OB/GYN for over 14 years or more and he will be truly missed. He had such a wonderful spirit about him that made you feel so comfortable and a Big smile. My prayers are with family and may God continue to comfort you all.

When my husband and I first moved to Columbia 28 years ago, I had the good fortune of becoming a patient of Dr. Reed. A very difficult pregnacy would soon follow, and Dr. Reed made multiple housecalls to our home in Horrell Hill before and after work. We named our son in his honor and will forever hold dear his memory. That son is now a physician, and it is our hope that he will mean as much to others as Dr. Stanmore Reed has meant to us!

May God's grace comfort you during this time of loss. My deepest sympathy.

Dr. Reed was my OB for more than 30 years. He was a wonderful.loving.caring doctor. When you walked into his office and he closed the door to talk with you after your exam it was like you were the only patient he had. When he retired i knew i would miss him very much. Thank goodness his sweet daughter,Julie, was there so that my mom and I could start seeing her and i could keep up with how he and his sweet wife were doing through her. i will truly miss this sweet, loving, humble man. This world has lost a wonderful human being, but heaven has gained an Angel. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his sweet wife and children.

Dr. Reed was the first OB my mother took me to as a teen back in 1979. He will truly be missed. To the family, GOD came back to get his _Angel of Medicine because he needed him to deliver some babies in HEAVEN. So he truly did his job down here on the Earth.

God Bless You All.

We first met Stanley in 1967 when my wife assisted him in setting up his practice in the Rosewood area. We attended church with him at Rosewood Baptist. He became our doctor for the time he remained in private practice. We found Stanley to be a warm, personable, intelligent doctor who cared immensely about his patients. While it has been 44 years since we have seen him, reading of his passing has saddened us. He certainly impacted our lives as a young physician. We want the family to know that we thought of him as a wonderful doctor, friend and human being. Our sympathies are with you.

So sorry to hear about Dr. Reed He was my doctor for 30 years. He was well loved and will be sadly missed. I always

He was a wonderful person all around.
February 26, 2011
Dr. Reed was my doctor for more yrs. than I can count. He had the most compassion of any Dr. I've ever seen. God lead me to him to find out why I couldn't have children. Within 3 months I was pregnant!! Dr. Reed delivered my 2 boys and he was the most precious caring Dr., man, person that has ever taken care of a human being. I'm so proud to call him MY FRIEND AND DOCTOR. He will be missed and there will never be another one like him!! What a Godly man!! He will recieve his crowns in heaven for sure!!
February 26, 2011
I was in the choir at Rosewood Baptist Church with Stan. His one wish in life was to be a physician, and God saw to it that he fulfilled his dreams. He was such an inspiration. Many years ago, he was my OB/GYN, and I had to have minor surgery. In the operating room, prior to my being fully anesthetized, I could hear Stan singing and telling jokes. He was one of the happiest people I have ever known. May God Bless and Keep his family. Donna Dedmond McCullough (Columbia, SC)

Stan was a comfort during three complicated pregnancies. He always had a smile on his face and time to sit down and discuss anything that was of importance to me. Every time I see African Violets, I think about that credenza in his office where he had so many beautiful flowers. Prayers to his family. He will truly be missed.

I was deeply sadened to hear of Dr. Reeds passing. He was such an important part of the Steele family women for such a long time. If I am not mistaken, I believe my brother and I were one of the first set of twins he delivered. He also assisted Dr. Julie with the delivery of my own twins in 2004. Here is a funny story I must share, After 10 hours of waiting on my first child to enter this world, Dr. Reed came in my room and told me if I didn't hurry up and deliver I was going to have to see another doctor. I told him OH NO, it was almost 5pm and I wasn't seeing another doctor. He was going to deliver my baby. When Ethan was born he had a head full of hair. I told Dr. Reed it was such a shame that even babies had more hair than he did! We laughed for quite a while.
His humor and excellent bedside manor will be deeply missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of Dr. Reed's family.
February 25, 2011
I am so very sorry for your loss. He delivered both of my children and one of my grandsons. He was a wonderful doctor and will be missed by many.
February 25, 2011
Dr. Reed,

You were a Saint and Hero to so many of us here on earth...I can't wait to see you again one day and feel the soft hand pats you always gave on my arm...you did that for all your patients. You treated your patients with such love and respect. You will forever be deeply loved and missed by so many. My sincerest prayers for Dr. Reed's Family...

Dr. Reed you will always be remembered as a distinguished doctor, who brought so much to many lives. You were my doctor in 1974. Now your most respected daughter, Dr. Julie was a part of my grand daughter being brought into this world in October 2010. Julie I am Heather Shuler's mother. I had the pleasure of meeting you last October and as many have done I shared my wonderful experience of being a patient of your daddy's. My heart and prayers are with all of you. This came as a real shock to me.
Blessings,

Dr. Reed was a humble and caring physician. A scared 19 yr old young lady "labored" for many hours. The survival of both, mother and unborn child, were grim. Dr. Reed performed an emergency c-section. He saved two lives that day in September (1973). It is because of Dr. Reed, my mom and I are here today.
Many thanks to his wife and family for understanding the many sacrifices he made while being a husband, a daddy
and a physician. He will be greatly missed.
February 25, 2011
Never knew Doctor Reed well but just reading about him gives you all thats needed to see what a wonderful man he was. Our hearts go out to his sweet wife Ann and to all his Children and gand children. David and Brooke we are thinking about you and Hayden. Our love and thougts are with you at this time. Love, Aunt Linda and Uncle Tom.
February 25, 2011
Our world was made better by having Dr. Reed in it. My sincerest condolences to his family during the sorrowful time. I know the God can give comfort. It was such an encouragement and uplift when I saw him sometimes daily and I would ask him how he was he would always reply "better than I deserve" and smile. If you were down that lifted you up. It is comforting to know that when he closed his eyes the final time he opened them for the first time on the other side of Jordan and saw the Face of Jesus. Again my deepest sympathy

I did not know Dr Reed personally, but I, too, am a descendant of Samuel Reed and Mary Clark. As I read his obituary and the wonderful tributes to him, I feel that I do in fact know him. How grateful I am to learn that he was a faithful follower and servant of our Lord. I look forward to meeting him in Heaven. To his family I send condolences and prayers as you adjust to the present loss of your loved one.

I was deeply saddened when I learned about Dr. Reed’s passing. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for your loss.
Dr. Reed was a special person indeed; He was my mom’s doctor for many years and was the OB/GYN for my birth. Years later, he became my doctor and brought my son into the world, May 1999. I still remember being in his exam room when my Mom asked him “How he felt delivering a baby of one he had delivered years before?” He just smiled and told me, “Now I told you not to bring her in here again (as he laughed).” We both knew he had such a great sense of humor. My other favorite was being in Dr. Reed’s office calling my dad to tell him that I was having a boy. My dad said then, “About d@#% time in this girl producing family.” With Dr. Reed laughing, it was a priceless reaction when we told my dad he was on a speaker and he said, “Oh sorry.”
Dr. Reed made you feel at ease because he made you feel like family. He was a great doctor to have and I feel blessed to have had him as my doctor from my birth to the birth of my son until his retirement. Heaven has a remarkable angel now!
February 24, 2011
Today when I was told of Dr. Reed's passing I felt stunned and sad. Dr. Reed was not only my ob/gyn but my mom's and my sisters' as well. I remember how he and Barbara always made me feel at ease when I visited the office. Dr. Reed delivered my children. Another sad day was the day he retired from practicing medicine, but what a blessing when Dr. Julie Reed continued in her father's practice with the same type of bedside manner. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during their time of sorrow. God has truly taken home a "great physician".
February 24, 2011
Dr. Reed was a wonderful, compassionate doctor. I will remember forever seeing him actually running and hitting the doors at Baptist Hospital when he was called to the ER due to my having a sudden miscarriage. He was genuinely concerned about me and comforted me during a difficult time. He subsequently delivered my daughter 38 years ago AND my two grandchildren, one of whom is named after him. I was saddened to hear of his death but I know he was a committed Christian and we will see him again. To his children, look under the bottom of some of the furniture he made for you, there is a note there for you from him. He loved you all dearly.
February 24, 2011
My heart hurts to hear of Dr. Reed's passing. He was such a wonderful person and always brought a smile to my face. I will be thinking of and praying for his family.
February 24, 2011
Thank you to his wonderful wife and family for sharing such a wonderful man and doctor with me. I will never forget him. May God bless you at this time.
February 24, 2011
Dr. Reed was my Moms Dr. when I was just a little girl. He became my Dr. when I was 2 years old as well. We both saw Dr. Reed until he went off to become a gynecologist. After he graduated, I was by then, at the age to start seeing a gyn. How lucky I was. Mom and I started back as soon as he opened his practice.Like all his other patients, we Loved Dr. Reed. He is the only Dr. that I have ever visited that, you not only got your examination but you also were entertained with his singing. LOL. His bed side manners were the best. He was a kind, gental wonderful man & Dr. God sure has a Great angel in heaven now. Dr. Reed delivered my brother in 72, my daughter in 82, my son in 94, my nephew in 98 and my niece in 99. Mom & I saw Dr. Reed until he retired. She past away August 7, 2009.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Reed family. May God hold you in his arms and comfort you as you go through this tough time. He will be missed dearly and always be loved and never forgotten by so many of us that he touched. Not only as a physician but as a wonderful person who loved life, his family, his patients and God. Rest in Peace Dr. Reed. You will be missed.

Dr.Reed was a wonderful man and doctor. He delivered my two sons ages 22 and 25. He was my doctor until his retirement. There are few doctors with his humor and humbleness. He always made time to listen to his patients and I always left his office feeling lifted up. My prayers are with his family. Thank each of you for sharing him with us.
Sincerely,

What a loss for the Reed family and all those who knew Dr. Reed. I enjoyed talking with him about roses. My thought and prayers are with you.
February 24, 2011
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Stanley was on my mind this past weekend. My daughter Michelle celebrated her 39th birthday last Sunday. She was born on a beautiful Sunday morning. Being only 17 years old at the time , I was scared to death but Stanley with his calming and comforting bedside manner made me feel safe. He was more to me than my cousin, doctor but a good friend. He will be missed by many.
February 24, 2011
Stanley and I were close friends at Rosewood Baptist and Dreher High School and USC. We shared a lot of fun and fellowship through the years but most of all we were and are brothers in Christ. From early on he decided to let Christ reveal Himself through his life.
Heaven is sweeter today and Stanley sees Jesus face on.
It was Christ that made Stanley a great man and Christ who will comfort and minister to his precious family.

Dr. Reed was my Doctor for 30 years. He delivered my beautiful daughter 26 years ago and kept me from fainting when he delivered the news of twins in 2000. Dr. Reed was much more than a doctor. He was a friend, a shoulder to cry on and a buddy to laugh with. He was a true angel on earth and will be deeply missed.
February 24, 2011

You will be greatly missed.
February 24, 2011
Dr. Reed will be greatly missed. He was my ob/gyn and always made me feel at ease for my "dreaded" appointments. I was honored and blessed to have him deliver my daughter among other procedures. I was very disappointed when he retired, but he highly recommended his daughter Julie and she obviously learned a great deal from her dad. She's just as sweet and comforting as he always was. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and the many lives Dr. Reed touched.
