REED, KENNETH WOODROW &
CHERYL ANN (NEE CURRY)
It is with profound sadness that the family of Ken and Cheryl Reed share the news of their tragic and untimely deaths. On Thursday, September 4, 2014 Ken, 72 and Cheryl, 65, were killed in a motor vehicle accident near Ft. St. John BC en route to the Yukon for Ken's hunting trip with their sons. Taken far too soon, there was still so much to do; they will be so incredibly missed. Cheryl was born in Balgonie, SK on December 17, 1948 to Mina and Isaac Curry. Cheryl was involved with horses from a young age, she loved going on trail rides with Ken (she turned him into the cowboy she wanted him to be), her daughter and many close friends. Cheryl loved to garden, she had an active outdoor lifestyle and her homemade salsa will be missed dearly. Cheryl was a loving mother, devoted wife and one of the kindest people on earth. Ken was born in Poplar Bluff, Missouri to Willis and Zelzie Reed on November 24, 1941. He came to Canada in 1963 to play in the CFL. He played with the Saskatchewan Roughriders from 1965 until 1970 and upon retirement Ken worked for United Dominion Investments. In 1973 he purchased Ott Six Ranch and soon after met Cheryl, the love of his life. To say Ken was an avid hunter or outdoorsman isn't quite enough, the annual trips with his sons were a highlight for them all. Ken and Cheryl were brought together over a beer and shared many through the years. They were married in 1975 and in 1978 established and operated Reed Ford Tractor, later Reed Leisure Products. You could often find them on their front porch with a glass of homemade wine or a can of Ken's cheap American beer. The farm that they built from the ground up was their paradise. They spent countless hours there with their children and grandchildren and many friends. Their adventures weren't confined to their home; they travelled the world together and recent excursions included Galapagos, Egypt, China, Africa, Mexico, Belize, Nicaragua, Honduras and Panama. Ken and Cheryl are survived and dearly missed by son Mark (Carrie) Reed; grandchildren Brady and Lila; son Kirk (Christy) Reed; grandsons Kiefer and Kobe; daughter Rocky (Pat) Stochmal, as well as Cheryl's mother Mina Curry; her Aunt Polly Mireau and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Ken was predeceased by his parents, Willis and Zelzie. Cheryl was predeceased by her father Isaac Curry and her brother Jim. Ken and Cheryl's life will be celebrated at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 28, 2014 at the Turvey Centre, Armour Rd (off Hwy 6 North), Regina, SK. Arrangements entrusted to:
