Reeves, Bill F.  
Bill F. Reeves 1937-2015 Bill F. Reeves, of Gulf Breeze, FL, passed away at his home on February 20, 2015. Bill was born in Columbus, Georgia, September 18, 1937 to Joseph Bartley and Eva Pearl Reeves. Bill frequently remarked that he felt so fortunate to have attended Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus where Robert M. Barr was the band director. Mr. Barr built the band from 17 students to over 200 members and, with Bill playing the trombone, led the band to win the American Legion Award as the nation's outstanding high school band in 1952. Mr. Barr was a major influence in Bill's youth and he instilled in him a lifelong love of music. Bill auditioned and was accepted by the Columbus Symphony while still a high school student. After relocating to the Pensacola/Gulf Breeze area in the early 60's, he returned to Columbus many times to play the trombone in the Bob Barr Community Band and always enjoyed the fellowship of the other band members. Bill enjoyed a successful career, spanning over 30 years at the Pensacola Sears in the floor covering division. A recipient of many sales awards over the years, he was noted for being a man of outstanding character whose word was his bond. He had a gregarious nature and was always quick with a joke. Nothing pleased him more than getting together with his buddies at Sears for a trip down to Hopkins Boarding House for lunch, or after retirement, an employee get together. After settling in Gulf Breeze in 1968, Bill became an avid supporter of the Dolphins sports program where he was a familiar face at many football and basketball games. Bill was preceded in death by his sister Betty Jo Williams who passed away February 7, 2015. Bill was a loving husband, a devoted father, a proud grandparent and great-grandparent. He was a fine man who was loved and respected by his entire family. Bill is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Carole Marie Reeves, his son Kevin M. Reeves, daughter in-law Susan E. Reeves, four grandchildren, William S. Reeves, Benjamin M. Reeves, Samantha M. Reeves, and Joanna E. Reeves as well as two beautiful great-granddaughters, Lottie B. Reeves and Kyla E. Reeves. As requested by the deceased, there will be no funeral services. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to: Wildlife Sanctuary of Northwest Florida, 105 North S Street, Pensacola, FL, 32505. Express your condolences in our guestbook at
