Dr. Reid was a classmate of 119 Jefferson High School Dayton Ohio graduates that received their diploma in 1968. We just celebrated our 50th Class Reunion on June 22, 2018. In putting together our presentation for the event, we honored Dr. Reid as part of a beautiful memorial slideshow, along with other fellow classmates we had lost over the years. The presentation was captured beautifully on a Keepsake DVD and will be treasured by all his classmates forever. Rest in Eternal Peace my friend. - Jefferson Broncos class of 1968.

Dr. Anthony Eugene Reid will be remembered for his dedication and concerned for Humanity at Large. He certainly made all of us, his relatives very proud of what he accomplished. Tony, affectionately called by family members, is certainly deserving of R.I.P.

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my friend Dr Anthony Reid. Tony and I were residents together at LA County--USC Medical Center and later Cardiology Fellows at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan in Los Angeles. He was a constant and reliable source of compassion, competence, integrity and humor. He was one of the most genuinely kind and devoted (family, friends, patients) people I have ever known. We have lost one of the Creator's shinning stars. My love and condolances to his family. May Tony's legacy bring peace and comfort to you at this difficult time

Dr. Reid has been instrumental in saving my life. I will be forever indebted to him. He was a wonderful man who gave selflessly to his patients and I will miss him terribly. Being the great person he was, I've no doubt that God has favored him with a seat at His right hand. RIP, my friend, until we meet again. It was a blessing to have known you.

Tony's special work here is done. But his kindness and devotion to all that knew him will live on. He was not only my cousin but my friend. So many wonderful memories fill my mind and heart of he, Greg and I growing up and being together. I am so very proud of him and will love him always. On behalf of my father William Sr. Rest in peace.

He was kind, soft spoken, compassionate, caring to everyone and loved his patients. He went that extra mile for his patients, taking time with them, calling them and being there for them. I met Dr Reid, when he was an Intern, on the Admitting Unit at County USC Medical Center. Working with him in his practice, referring patients to him over the years, he was still the same. The Medical Profession, patients and friends, are truly going to miss him, but GOD makes no mistakes, he is another beautiful soul added to His Kingdom.

Dr. Reid was truly a kind, smart, generous, funny, and dedicated person who was determined to make a difference in the lives of so many - he went out of his way to always offer help to any and all who needed it. I consider myself privileged and honored to have had the opportunity to work briefly alongside Dr. Reid, and to learn from his warm and thoughtful manner with all of humanity. Rest in peace Tony, my prayers and thoughts remain with you and yours.
