Andrew W. Reed

ANDREW (ANDY) W. REED, passed away on Sunday, June 9, 2024, in Barre, VT. Born in Berlin on January 24, 1985, he was the son of Terry and Sheila (Gray) Reed.

Andy graduated from Harwood Union High School in 2004. He lived with his parents for 32 years. Andy lived at Hill Street Residential Group Home for seven years and was very well taken care of and loved by all the staff. Andy loved music and you would always see him bobbing his head and dancing in his chair. He loved camping with his family every summer at Lake Carmi. Andy enjoyed watching baseball and softball. His team was the Atlanta Braves. He loved his Raggedy Andy and had many of them over the years which he would take wherever he went.

Andy’s life touched every person he met in his own unique way. He was considered family to all those around him. Andy taught his friends and family patience, compassion, and love. He was always laughing at jokes before anyone else caught on or if someone did something silly, like tripping on the carpet. Andy was known for always having a solid left hand love tap that he’d follow with a smile. To know Andy is to love him. He captured everyone’s heart.

Andy is survived by his father Terry Reed and mother Sheila (Gray) Reed. He is survived by two brothers, Brian Reed and his partner Wendy Ann, Joshua Reed and his partner Brian Popov; and two sisters, Tabitha and her husband Jessie Gilmartin, and Elizabeth Reed; maternal grandmother Barbara Ploof. Andy is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated from St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Waterbury on Friday, June 21 at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow in the church parish hall. Inurnment will take place in Holy Cross Cemetery, Duxbury.
