Obituary

THIS OBITUARY IS LISTED AS A COURTESY TO THE REED FAMILY AND LORD AND STEPHENS FUNERAL HOME.

James Benjamin “Ben” Reed, 70, died February 25, 2022.

 A native of Dooly County, GA, he was a son of the late James Anderson and Mary Langston Reed. 

Ben resided in Oconee County for many years and was an avid supporter of high school sports – a love of his growing up. Over the years he and his wife, Kay, helped provide meals for many of those sports teams. This passion for cooking and catering led to them founding “Kay’s Catering” five years ago, following Ben’s retirement from Life of Georgia Insurance Company.

 Funeral services will be Tuesday, March 1, 2022 at 11:00 AM at the chapel of Lord and Stephens Funeral Home, WEST. The family will receive friends from 9:00 until 11:00 AM at the funeral home. Graveside services will be held at 4:00 PM at Pinehurst City Cemetery, Pinehurst, GA.

 Survivors include his wife of forty-four years, Sammie Katherine “Kay” Hattaway Reed; five children, Jennifer (John) Simpson of Watkinsville, Kristin (Alan) Harrison of Bishop, Haley Reed of Watkinsville, Sam (Rachelle) Reed of Watkinsville and Kaycee (Mac) Manley of Greensboro; brother, Ronald (Edwina) Reed of Pinehurst; sister, Jan (Jeffrey) Preston of Unadilla; grandchildren, Emily, Ansley, Drake, Brax, Reed, Parker, Ellie Kay, Grant, Lawson, A.J., Layne and Madison. 

Pallbearers will be Alan Harrison, Mac Manley, John Simpson, Mark Reed, Jim Reed and Lee Bush.
