Celebrating the life of

Frederick Allen Reed

May 26, 1962 - May 13, 2024

Frederick Allen Reed

Frederick Allen Reed, 61, of Wilmington Island, GA, passed away peacefully at his home on 5/13/2024.

He was born in Columbus, Ohio on May 26, 1962, to the late Joan Burns Reed and Kenneth Jack Reed. He is preceded in death by a brother Michael Wayne Reed. He also had 7 half-brothers and 4 half-sisters. The family was notorious for being rebellious and loud. Fred attended Lee Senior High School in Sanford, NC, and later graduated from East Jefferson High School in Metaire, LA. He went to work for Noble Oil Co. of New Orleans where he worked on oil rigs for months at a time. He later went into construction, building sunrooms, patios, decks, and remodels where he became well-known for his attention to detail, determination, and perfectionist skills.

Fred was the guy, that had a guy, that knew a guy, for everything. He didn’t just make friends everywhere he went; they became part of the family. He was a prankster with an arsenal of quirky quotes. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather (Paw Paw), and friend to all who knew him. He might have been arrogant and “stuck in his ways” at times but we all loved him for being, Fred Reed!

He is survived by his loving wife, Cynthia Gale ( Stormy) Kelly of Savannah, GA. Sons, Tristan Reed and wife Stephanie of Broadway, NC, and Cameron Reed of Greenville, NC; grandchildren Landon & Harper Reed and many nieces and nephews.

There will be a Celebration of Life on Sunday, May 26, 2024, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 PM at Ellies Crow Bar, 205 Johnny Mercer Blvd, Savannah, GA 31410



Fred, you will always be loved, remembered and missed. I am forever thankful for the opportunity to have you as a friend and someone I could trust to give me a laugh on those tough days. Stormy, I love you so much. I hope you and your family are able to smile as big as Fred, from the memories he leaves with us. Never Fade Away Fred!
