Obituary for Robert Reed

Robert Lee Reed, of Golconda, Illinois passed away unexpectedly at home on Thursday,
September 9th. Robert was only 49 years old and will be missed by everyone who loved and
knew him.

Robert spent 4 years in the United States Navy and served with honor in Desert Storm.
He was on the USS America. After Robert’s time in the Military, he went to work for Ingram
Barge Company out of Paducah, Kentucky. He worked for Ingram for 20 years and retired from
there as a First Mate. He loved being on the boats and had fond memories and stories about
them.

Robert was loved by more people than he ever realized in his short life. He was such a
caring person and always worried more about everyone else than he did himself. He would tell
you that he was doing good to keep others from worrying about him, but he made sure that you
knew he was worried about how you were doing. He loved his mother more than anyone in the
world and always wanted to make sure that she was doing good and had everything she needed
or wanted. He also cherished his children more than they knew and was always worried about
how they were doing and if they were going to need something that he couldn’t provide. His
mother and children were his world and wanted nothing more than for them to be happy and
have a wonderful life.

Robert is survived by his loving mother, Edna Reed; children, Shanna Cox (Kyle) and Collin Reed; brothers and sisters, Hubert Reed (Kristi), Ina Farler (George), Darvin Reed (Stephanie) and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Robert was preceded in death by his father, Clarence Reed.

Memorial service will be 11:00 am on Thursday, September 16, 2021, at Sulphur Springs Baptist Church. The service will be conducted by Pastor Larry Hammer, Jr. Military honors will follow the service. Visitation will be from 10:00 am until time of service on Thursday at the church.
