Michael Lewis Reed


It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Michael (Mike) Lewis Reed, loving son, brother, uncle, and friend. He is survived by his mother, Phebe Reed, and predeceased by his Father (Bric Reed) in 1993; Sister, Colleen Reed and Brother, Neil Reed (Helga), Nieces: Chelsea Reed (David) & Jacey (Rob) and Nephew, Lucas Kowalski. Great Niece, Maddi, along with many cousins and extended family. Mike was born in Prince George, BC on June 17, 1960, and grew up in Calgary, Alberta for the first part of his life and then completed high school in Enderby, BC. He attended post-secondary education in Kamloops, BC, and dedicated his career to the automotive industry as he was a hot rod enthusiast and enjoyed all things parts and cars. He loved working in the parts department(s) at St. Albert Dodge, Capital Dodge, and Crosstown Dodge in the Edmonton region and had many wonderful colleagues he worked with. Mike was very close with his family and had just recently moved in with his sister and nephew. He enjoyed the past few months being able to spend more time with them and also visited his 90-year-old mom, Phebe, who had moved from BC to Alberta, into a care home just 10 minutes away. Mike was known for being a loyal, gentle soul. He was quiet at times but had a great sense of humor. Chances are if you knew Mike, you knew how much he loved to send greeting cards – usually a month early. We will forever miss those wonderful check-ins and know in our hearts he is sending them from heaven now. Every summer, he enjoyed visiting family and friends in the North Okanagan and also loved listening to music while he drove down. Mike was also a huge animal lover – especially his cat, Chi. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation in Mike’s name to the Hervey Foundation for Cats (www.herveycats.com) or any cat rescue, charity of one’s choice. Mike would not have wanted any sadness or to be a bother to anyone, it was just Mike’s way. May we all find comfort knowing he is now in his Dad’s embrace and is our Angel above us, looking out for everyone. May you rest in peace, Mike. We love and miss you dearly. -June 17, 1960 – September 30, 2021- A interment gathering will occur in Spring 2022 in Camrose, Alberta

To Colleen, Mikes mom and family:
My heartfelt sadness on the passing of your brother and son.
Mike was a great friend and amazing roommate. There was no one I felt I could trust more than him as a good friend and roommate.

With sadness but good memories,

To Mike: I will miss you my dear friend – working with you was such a pleasure, you put a smile on my face everyday and made me laugh just about as often. I will miss your excitement about the classic you would find online and share with me and the fun we had on weekends chasing down toy cars whether in the city or a fun road trip outside the city to see if that hidden gem was out there. Your passion for life was unsurpassed. I feel privileged to have had you in my life and privileged to be your friend. Until we meet again in the next life 🙂

Dear Uncle Mike,

It’s hard to comprehend you are gone Uncle. You were such a wonderful part of my life and so many people have shared how kind you were and how much they also cherished having you in theirs. I admire that you lived your passion for cars and I hope to do you proud by living out my passions too. Much love. Please give grandpa a big hug from us. Xoxo
