Nelson “Tinker” Reed of Glenville, a hopeless flirt, avid hunter (he particularly loved stalking game from the front seat of his car or the plastic chair in the back yard), unwilling farmer, meal connoisseur, expert hugger, questionable dresser, accomplished recliner rider, devotee of The Western Channel and RDTV, lover of bluegrass and old-time music, and all-around cantankerous old fart, went to that Great Coon Hunt in the sky on July 26, 2018.
Friends and family are invited to celebrate what would have been his 80th birthday on August 1, 2018 at the 33 Country Club, 4590 US Highway 33 E, Glenville, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Nelson dearly loved his “holler” and had no desire for a funeral.
His wishes are to be placed under the maple tree on the farm and details will be announced at a later date.
The family asks that you make donations in his memory to the Gilmer County Senior Citizens Center, the Glenville State College Women’s Basketball program and/or Glenville State College Bluegrass Music Program.
