Obituary

THOMAS STANLEY REID

At home in Plainfield on May 5, 2020, Stan passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness. At age 85, he lived a long and full life; his beloved wife and life partner, Beverley (Urch) at his side. A wonderful father and grandfather, he will be forever missed by his loving daughters, Allyson and Michelle, and his adored granddaughter, Alexandra Grace. Fondly remembering him are his sister, Mary (Hamblin) and husband, Wayne, many dear nieces and nephews and his close community of friends. Predeceased by his parents, Tom and Sarah, his brothers, Wallace, Goldie and Harry and his sisters, Marjorie (Green) and Marie (Peake).
Born in Huntingdon Township in 1935, he was a lifelong Thurlow resident, a member of St. Mark’s United Church and a steadfast Mason for 56 years. Master of Moira Lodge No. 11 in 1972 and District Deputy Grand Master 1998-1999. Over a span of fifty years, his working life ranged from a welder, an iron worker and a Property Assessor to a Real Estate Appraiser in the firm he established.
Stan made friends wherever he went – on the pitcher’s mound playing for Latta in the South Hastings Baseball League, on golf courses, at Masonic Lodge meetings and community gatherings and in all areas of his professional life. Along with his Belleville Kenmors teammates, Stan was inducted into the Belleville Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.

He loved his family, church, his work, travel, the Toronto Maple Leafs, laughter and a good chat. His kindness and unique sense of humour will be missed. Heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses and support staff for their care and compassion over the years.

If desired, donations may be made in Stan’s honour to the University of Ottawa “Heart Institute Foundation” (foundation.ottawaheart.ca). In keeping with Stan’s wishes, cremation arrangements have been made with QUINTE CREMATION & BURIAL SERVICES, 205 North Front Street, Belleville. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private family service will be held and followed at a later date by a Celebration of Life.

We’ve shared our lives these many years.
You’ve held my hand; you’ve held my heart.
So many blessings, so few tears –
Yet for a moment, we must part.

Dear Bev, Allyson and Michelle, please know that I am thinking of you and want to extend my most sincere condolences. Stan's great sense of humour, shared by all of you, will certainly live on in the next generations. I recall talking to him and not being sure if he was pulling my leg or not, until that glint showed in his eye and the laughter started. Take care of each other. Janice (Milligan) Hall

Dear Bev & Family, we were so sorry to read of Stans passing. I was always impressed with his upbeat approach to life and enjoyed our visits during my disc jockey days and for the kindnesses he showed to my mother Annie. He will be missed. Mark & Patti Scero

We are so sad to hear that Stan passed away. Your family are one of the few families that Shai remembers well from our Belleville days. His sense of humour is one of the things we will always remember best! So glad that you are together as a family in this tough time. If Ross were well enough he would start by saying he remembers meeting you both 25 years ago when we first came to St Marks. Then he would say that he could picture Stan arriving in heaven: when St Peter greeted him at the pearly gates Stan would use his property assessor skills to make a challenging maybe comical remark about the condition of the pearly gates. And all the angels waiting to greet him would start laughing and then even St Peter would join in. Then St Peter would welcome Stan and say “ you know Stan the best thing about heaven is that your health is restored and all that fatigue and suffering is gone. There is quite a large crowd here waiting to greet you. They have really missed you and they have told us so much about you. There is quite a group of people here from St Marks including your long time friend Gary who is really keen to catch up on all the news. And we have quite a baseball league here and a team place just for you. And after you catch up with your family and friends I have a special assignment for you. We have some people here are feeling very sad and lonely. They need a visitor with a good sense of humour to help lift their spirits and bring them some cheer. We think you are just the right person for this. And so Stan goes forward to be reunited with family and friends and begin this new part of life beyond death.
Blessings of peace and comfort to each of you and giving thanks gif the opportunity to get to know your wonderful family

We will miss those witty greetings, the big chuckles, the teasing and the sincere wishes. I will remember the debate over the food...what was good and what was good for you! Thanks Stan for all the memories and the fun. Blessings and prayers to Bev, Allyson and Michelle and family. Arthur and Alfreda
