He was a competitive athlete, who continued to play softball, basketball and golf his entire life. He immensely enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas, Florida, going on cruises, and being around his Standardbred racehorses. The family cabin in Canada was his favorite place to visit.
Mr. Reid had friends in every aspect of his life; fraternity brothers, softball friends, and business friends. He was a very generous and giving person, he valued the time he spent with his family.
