Obituary of Jerome Reed
Jerome K. "Jerry" Reed, 62, of Jamestown, NY passed away on Thursday February 8th after a lengthy illness. Jerry was born in Silver Creek NY on September 15, 1961 the son of the late Harley and Josephine (DePasquale) Reed. He spent most of his years living in Silver Creek and Dunkirk before moving into a group home in Jamestown nearly 18 years ago. Jerry worked for the Resource Center in both Dunkirk and Jamestown for 25 years before retiring in 2015. He attended a Resource Center Dayhab in Jamestown in his later years. Jerry lived his life with joy and carried that joy into just about every room he entered. He loved attending dances. He loved superheroes (especially Iron Man). He loved Professional Wrestling and was even fortunate enough to meet and have his picture taken with his favorite wrestler of all time, Hulk Hogan. Most of all, Jerry loved meeting people. If you met Jerry, you were immediately his friend. Jerry's family would like to thank the countless Direct and Indirect Support staff that have taken such good care of Jerry and helped him live his best life over the past 18 years. You made a difference in his life as well as our family's. Thank you all.
In addition to his parents, Jerry was predeceased by his brother Charlie and several aunts, uncles and cousins. He is survived by his loving Aunt Marygrace Spencer, his Uncle Sal DePasquale, his brothers Jim (Kathy Thies) and Don, along with several cousins, nieces and nephews.
