Jim Reid passed away Saturday, March 13, 2021, at HopeWest Care Center after losing his second battle with cancer.
He is survived by the love of his life, Sharon Billings, after spending a short 38 years together. His two children also survive, son, Tony (Karrie), and daughter, Jennifer (Roger-deceased) as well as his five grandchildren, Destry, Christopher, Bryce, Joshua and Katelyn, as well as one great grandchild, Parker.
Jim was born in Beatrice on May 24, 1946, to loving parents, Kenneth and Eleanor Reid, who preceded him in death. Jim was an accomplished machinist, farmer, welder, hunter and fisherman, among many other trades and hobbies. He very much enjoyed the odd job and projects, especially when completing it with family or friends. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do.
In lieu of flowers or donations, please have a seat on the porch, crack open a Pabst Blue Ribbon, (Jim’s favorite) in his honor, and remember what an amazing man he was. We are all sure he would have loved to join you. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
