1948 - 2019 Obituary Condolences
Arnold "Arnie" Reed

Phoenix - Arnold (Arnie) W. Reed passed peacefully into eternal life on Feb. 1, 2019 in Glendale, AZ with his family by his side. Arnie was born on Aug. 1, 1948 in Indianapolis, Indiana to William and Cleda Reed. The family moved to Arizona in the 1950's for health reasons.

Arnie served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. After his honorable discharge from the Navy, Arnie worked in the food industry for a number of years before his long term employment with the Washington School District where he worked until his retirement. Arnie liked to stay busy and after retirement he worked part time for the Trinity Bible Church.

Always an enthusiastic fisherman, Arnie enjoyed exploring the beautiful lakes of Arizona searching for the perfect spot to camp and fish. His fishing stories provided great entertainment for the family and his cooking skills provided great meals. He loved being out of doors enjoying the peace and quiet of the desert, woods and lakes.

Arnie is survived by his longtime friend Mary, his only brother David (Diane) Reed of Phoenix, AZ and his niece Kelli Reed of Prescott Valley, AZ. He is predeceased by his parents William and Cleda Reed.

The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all of the team at Life Care Center of North Glendale for their devoted care of Arnie for the past 3 years. Special thanks to Barbara and Max.

A Gathering will be held at Heritage Funeral Chapel, 6830 W. Thunderbird Rd. Peoria on Sunday, February 10th beginning at 11:00 AM with service to follow at 11:30 AM.
