It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward Henry Reese, on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. The cause of death was heart failure.

Born September 08, 1942, in Hurryville, Missouri, Ed graduated from High School in 1960. For his graduation present Ed’s father brought him to Utah to visit his sister. He fell in love with Ogden and the mountains and he never left. Ed then met his future wife, Judith Morse. They were married in 1962 and had five beautiful children. They later divorced.

Ed enjoyed boating, fishing, camping, bird watching, traveling, reading and owning his own business. He also relished 1980’s rock-and-roll and country music.  Working in his yard gave him immense pleasure and his yards were always beautiful and the envy of the neighborhood.

He is survived by his five children: Debbie Millard, Noell Anderson, Richard Reese, Jared Reese, and Joshua Reese and six grandchildren: Chelsee Anderson, Karlie (Bobby) Fritz, Jordan Millard, Kyra Millard, Tessa Anderson, Jesse Hamilton. Ed was also very proud to have two great-grandchildren: Sara Magouirk and Lakai Henderson.  He is also survived by his three sisters:  Phyllis Hulsey, Elaine (Carol) McWilliams, and Betty (Mark) Wilfong.
