Ronald Claude Reed, 76, of Flat Rock, went peacefully to be with his Heavenly Father Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021.

A native of Swannanoa, he was the oldest son of Claude Reed and Nell Stacey Reed. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sisters, Sandy McIntosh and Trena Owenby.

He spent most of his career as a truck driver. Prior to his retirement, he most enjoyed driving for Ingles Markets. If you knew him at all, you would know that he loved NASCAR, fishing and playing his bass guitar. He always said that the best time of his life was singing and playing with his church quartet called Psalm 100. Before moving back to Flat Rock, he was a member of Ingleside Baptist Church in Landrum, S.C.

Survivors include his wife, Edith Reed; daughter, Taletha Gray (Mickey); granddaughter, Jordan Snipes; grandson, Justin Gray; and his siblings, Melissa Fox (Charles), of Mars Hill, and his brothers, Billy Reed and Tommy Reed, of Swannanoa; also several beloved nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Four Seasons Hospice, Elizabeth House.
