Mr. Elvin King Reed, age 80, of Russellville, Mo., passed away on November 17, 2020.

Elvin was born on May 22, 1940, the son of John W. and Bessie S. (King) Reed.

Elvin was a simple man who took pride working outdoors on the family farm. He was respected, admired and loved by his friends and those closest to him. He is remembered for his sense of humor, his love for coffee, as an avid reader, a church attendee, and as a man of his own beliefs and opinions. Elvin believed in family values and took care of his parents until their passing preceding his death.

Elvin will be laid to rest next to his parents at Hopewell Cemetery in Barnett, Mo.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to a charity of the donor’s choice.

Private memorial arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

Elvin was my cousin and we grew up together, graduating in the same high school class. I have a lifetime of memories of him. He had a keen interest in history, particularly of the American west. When he and his parents moved from Iowa to Missouri, he found much pleasure in finding many arrowheads on their farm. His mother, who lived to be 103, received tender care as needed in her last years from Elvin. He will be missed.
