Obituary, John David Reid, 44
John David Reid, 44, loving husband of Jill and proud father of Jacob and Megan, was taken too early doing what he loved to do. He was born April 21, 1969 in Petersburg, Alaska and was found at sea after an August 1, 2013 boating accident. He flourished living in Sitka and had enjoyed its abundance of sea and hunting activity since October 1998.
John's young years were spent in logging camps with his family around his grandfather's business, Reid Timber, Inc. His love for the outdoors of Southeast Alaska was and is forever within him. As he would often say, he did have “the bug.”
