Michael A. Reed - “You are gone, but thank you for the soft, sweet things you have left behind in my home, in my head and in my heart.”
Michael Andrew Reed, 40, passed away suddenly on July 15, 2023, due to an ATV accident while riding with friends in the Adirondacks.
Michael was born on 12/27/82 and grew up in the Manchester/Canandaigua area on the family farm. He was a fun-loving guy with a huge heart for animals (Nina). As a small child he enjoyed growing up with horses and all the fun things to drive as he worked on the farm. He enjoyed his 4-H club with his neighbors and played all the sports while following in his brothers’ footsteps. As time passed his cars were his passion, and he learned to fix almost anything. Michael had a very quiet spirit with an enormous heart. With his very strong constitution and convictions, you always knew where you stood. Michael was a patriot, he proudly flew the flag and was proud to know his grandfathers, uncles and cousins fought for our freedom. He knew more about politics and health than most people, and in the last years of his life he studied the bible was proud to talk about the Lord.
Michael is survived by his mother, Deborah Misleany Reed, his father Michael (Brigid) Reed, 2 brothers, Zachery (Dana) Reed and Austin (Andrea) Reed, nieces Caroline & Ashley Reed, and nephews Coby, Buddy, Cam & Aiden Reed. He had many aunts and uncles, and one special uncle Peter Procko. He grew up with too many cousins to list from large extended families on both sides. He belonged to an ATV club named Dirt Won’t Hurt, and he will be greatly missed by all of his friends that belonged to it. Special thanks and appreciation go out to Justin (Tug) VanNorman and Steve Cooley, who both cared for him deeply and were wonderful mentors.
Family and friends are invited to a celebration of Michael’s life on August 6, 2023 at 3:00 PM at Wellspring Church, 22 Teft Avenue, Clifton Springs, NY with a reception to immediately follow at the American Legion Post 34, 1513 Palmyra St. (Rt. 21), Shortsville, NY. Please come with your biggest smiles and special memories to share, and wear your brightest clothes, as we are going to celebrate, not mourn…
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Food Pantry in Michael’s memory. Checks can be made out to Wellspring Church and please add Wellspring Food Distribution Center in the memo. Michael would be proud to know that he’d be feeding others.
