Jay Reed

Jay Reed, 46, passed away peacefully at Barton Memorial Hospital, of complications due to cancer, surrounded by loving friends on Tuesday, September, 23, 2008.

Jay was born in Milwaukee, Wis., on June 16, 1962. He is survived by his father Doug Reed and a brother in Wisconsin. He leaves behind too many great friends to list, and his best friend Peety, his dog, who recently passed on. He enjoyed taking Peety for walks in the meadow behind the Colony Inn and riding his bike around Tahoe. His favorite time in Tahoe was getting together with his friends and having a barbecue and listening to his favorite music. In the past he had worked at the Hard Rock Cafe for two years. He was known there as “Pantera.” We all will miss him dearly.
