Bob is survived by his wife, Margo Reed; his son, Rob (Christine) Reed; his grandchildren, Khelsea Reed, Samatha Reed, Madison (Josh) Griesenauer, Delaney Reed, Olivia Reed; his great-grandchildren, Scarlet, Silas, and Amelia; and his siblings, Joyce (William) Kouba, Charles Reed, Jeff (Harold) Reed, William "Bill" (Jeanette) Reed, and Jodi Schutchfield.

Bob was a proud US Marine who served 20+ years in the Corps and two tours in the Vietnam War. After his service, Bob remained a lifelong member of the VFW, a member of the Marine Corps League, and always volunteered to take an active role in producing Memorial Day celebrations in St. Charles county.

    candle 2My brother was a great guy and a wicked card player. He had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke. Bob was passionate about serving & supporting his fellow veterans. He will be missed.

    My sincere condolences to all of Bob’s loved ones. I know he will be sorely missed by all. Special prayers for you, Margo, as I’m sure it will be very difficult for you to live without your partner after so many years.

    Bob,

    I will always remember when I called you about a cartoon you sent me. I had to make sure you sent it an it was not spam. We both got a chuckle from that. Rest in Peace, Friend. Semper Fi.

    candle 7I was a young Army Master Sergeant in the mid-2000’s and Bob welcomed me with open arms to my new VFW family of old war Vets in St Peters. I quickly became friends with Margo and all the other members and it felt like ‘home’. I will never forget all of the good times we had at meetings and other events and when he sent me an Ultimate Defense hoodie after I had transferred to my new unit in Pennsylvania. I will always have great memories of a fellow Vet, friend and all around great man. You will always be someone that people will aspire to be my friend. Until we meet again.💕

    candle 7My deepest sympathy to Margo and family for a terrible loss. Bob was so nice to everyone from what I can remember from him being a former classmate. Smiling, making other kids laugh that came right from his toes. A really nice guy. Heaven got another new member for the squad and I bet he met up with a dear friend of mine that joined that squad 2 years ago and I’d like to think John met him at the gates. Semper Fi

    God rest his soul and bless his loved ones. I lost my beloved wife of 52 years, Kathy, three years ago. As I continue to grieve I am comforted by the thought that “When you lose a loved one, (s)he never leaves you”. 🙏
