ZANESVILLE : Troy Reed, age 96, of Zanesville, passed away January 17, 2014 after a brief illness.

He was born May 20, 1917 in Swain, Arkansas, to the late W.R. "Bob" Reed and Minnie Reed. Troy was known for his hard work, generosity and love for animals. He loved to hand feed the deer and other animals that often came to his yard. Troy worked for The City of Zanesville Street Department for 32 years and has been retired for many years. He will surely be missed by all who knew him. Troy married his wife, Lottie, in 1946 while serving our country in the U.S. Army as military police officer.

He is survived by his four daughters, Shirley (Paul) Shultzman, Glenna (David) Creeks, Dinah (David) Smeltzer and Troyann (Blair) Rittberger; grandchildren, Brittany Rittberger, Keri (Paul) Rexroad, Matt Miller, Jason (Debby) Creeks and Chuck Butcher; eight great-grandchildren; sisters, Ola Mae Coy Kendall of Santa Maria, CA, and Onalee Roles of Springdale, AR; sister-in-law, Catherine Reed of Santa Maria, CA; and many friends, cousins, nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Troy was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Lottie; brothers, Bill Reed and Delmar Reed; nephew, Jimmy Lee Roles; brother-in-law, Jim Roles; and special friend, Jo Ayers.
