With the heaviest of hearts, we announce that on August 22, 2019, the world lost beloved son, brother, and friend, Steven Reid.
Stevie was born on February 7, 1986 in Hartford, and lived most of his life in Connecticut, aside from a brief orange-clad sojourn to the University of Tennessee. He was a graduate of Kingswood Oxford School, class of 2004.
Steve loved life, sports, his friends, quick-dry t-shirts, and his little dog Tessie. He was larger than life and an incorrigible and creative prankster, with an infectious smile and a laugh that could light up a room. His magnetic charisma made him countless friends, all of whom loved him deeply. He was a computer whiz, and the go-to for set-up of all your technology needs.
He is survived by his mother and step-father Keyne Reid and David Kelly of Wethersfield, his sister and brother-in-law Maggie Reid Schneider and Andrew Schneider of Brookline, MA, and his sister Molly Reid, a bicoastal urban nomad. He is also survived by this uncles and aunts Brien and Eileen Beakey of Avon and Karen and Jack Mansfield of Virginia, and his step brothers John and Patrick Kelly and their wives Sarah and Meredith. He was predeceased by his father, Steven Reid. He will be profoundly missed by his enormous and loving family and countless friends.
Friends and relatives may pay their respects to the family Tuesday, August 27, 2019 from 4-7 pm at the Farley-Sullivan Funeral Home, 34 Beaver Rd., Wethersfield. A Remembrance Service will held Wednesday, August 28, 2019 from 10 -11:30 am at Farley-Sullivan. Interment will be private and at the convenience of the family.In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation at https://www.bbrfoundation.org.
