Scott Reed, 61, went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2023. He was born September 28, 1961 in Stoughton, Massachusetts to Dorothy and Melvin Reed.
Scott's heart was full of love for God, animals, nature, and most of all his family. He is survived by his wife, Janice, children Michelle and Scott Jr., and beloved grandchildren Emma and Avery, all of Charlotte; siblings Gene Reed of Florida; Rick Reed and wife Pat of Lakeville, Massachusetts; sister Wendy Harriman and husband Greg of East Bridgewater, Massachusetts; brother Dan Reed and wife Carol of Edmunds; mother-in-law Carolyn Robertson of Eastport; as well as many nieces, nephews, and brothers and sisters-in-law. Scott was predeceased by his mother Dorothy Reed of East Bridgewater, Massachusetts; father Melvin Reed of Brockton, Massachusetts; and sister Sandy Murphy of Marshfield, Massachusetts.
A lifelong outdoorsman, Scott grew up fishing, hunting, and trapping. His passion for nature brought him to Maine where he cultivated a verdant garden teeming with grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and fruit trees. His many pets were family to him, especially his loyal wolf-dog Rose. The ultimate handyman, he could fix anything, from the cellar bulkhead to his granddaughter's homecoming dress. He loved baking and was famous for his homemade apple pie, brownies, and grape juice. He went all out for the holidays, hosting Thanksgiving feasts full of family, friends, and food; legendary Easter egg hunts; Christmases straight out of a fairytale; and birthday parties to make you feel like royalty. Scott loved playing football and rooting on the Patriots with his daughter; his favorite game was the tuck rule game of 2002. He had a unique sense of humor and way with words. Even in the toughest times he was cracking jokes and keeping us all laughing.
Scott was a patriotic American, proud gun owner, and devoted follower of Christ. He had a beautiful baptism surrounded by his family and congregants of the Calais United Methodist Church. Now renewed like the eagle is his youth and he will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
