I cherish the years we worked together at Patock. We had some good times together riding the truck to/from various job sites. Thank you for teaching and reinforcing the hard work ethic. Rest in peace my friend.

To Grandma Sonia and my sister, Stephanie -- The Steverson family wish to extend our sincere condolences to you and your family. on the passing of father, husband and loved one. Mr. Reevey was a wonderful quiet soul. I enjoyed the way he always recognized my face but not my name. He would called me "Dollie" or "Rita". He's seen my grow from a teenager to an adult and I figured he knew me well enough to know that "I was one of the Hurt Girls" so I just answered to any name. I'm going to miss seeing his Red Truck around town.
