John Charles Reed



John Charles Reed, 78, of Los Lunas, New Mexico, a beloved husband, father and grandfather was unexpectedly taken from us on January 19, 2018. He was born in Columbus, Ohio on January 13, 1940, where he attended Columbus Business College until called to military service. He served in the Army Medical Corps, stationed in Germany. Upon returning from the military, he met and married Ann Traxler. They recently celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary.

After the Army, John resumed his career in the grocery industry where he worked in many states for 40 years until his retirement from Raley's Supermarkets in Albuquerque, NM. He loved the grocery industry and was highly regarded there.

John was happiest surrounded by his loving family and especially on walks with his constant canine companion, Cayenne. He loved traveling with his wife and grandchildren in their motorhome. He was always ready to talk about his Ohio State Buckeyes and NASCAR racing.

He is survived by his wife, Ann; by sons, Matthew, Justin and wife Tara, Joseph and wife Robin; by his grandchildren Lauren, Nathan, Harrison, Ethan, Lillian, Quinn, and Ashley; as well as his brother-in-law Phil Traxler; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

A private reception to celebrate John's life has been held. John will be interred at Santa Fe National Cemetery.
