Mr. Reid was born April 3, 1935, to the late Harold and Mamie Reid in Ackerman, MS. He graduated with an agricultural degree from Mississippi State University and served in the U.S. Army National Guard.

He also served as Chairman of the Board for Wesley United Methodist Church where he was a member for many years. In retirement he was an active member of Enon Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Ackerman, MS.

While living in Columbus, his favorite pastime was entertaining and cooking for large groups of people.
