Obituary for Daniel Clay Reed

Daniel Clay Reed, 70, of Brunswick, Georgia, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on October 13, 2017. He was the beloved husband of Connie Reed of Brunswick and loving father to Mark (Kristi) Reed of Greenville, SC, and caring grandfather to Walker, Marshall, and Janie Reed, also of Greenville.

Dan was born on December 27, 1946, in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, and showed a desire to help others from an early age, becoming an Eagle Scout before graduating from Bryan Station High School. After honorably serving his country in the U.S. Army as a communications specialist in Vietnam and the Philippines from 1968-1972, Dan received his bachelors degree from the University of Kentucky and his masters of business administration from Xavier University. He spent 15 years working in finances within the pharmaceutical industry before coming to MAP International, a nonprofit humanitarian organization, in 1993, where he worked diligently as the Chief Financial Officer and General Operations Manager until his retirement in September 2017.

His care for others extended to his role in using his gifts both as long-time Ruling Elder and Treasurer at Golden Isles Presbyterian Church, St. Simons Island, GA, and his active involvement on numerous nonprofit boards, including the International Health Partners, US and the Standards Committee of ECFA. In addition to serving, Dan was an avid photographer, and he loved to travel. Most important to him was his active and sustaining faith in Jesus Christ, made evident to many by his kind and humble spirit.

Dan was predeceased by his mother, Gladys Claypool Flynn, and his first wife, Marsha Violett Reed. He is survived by his step-father, Bob Flynn, brothers Edd (Melissa) Flynn and Mike (Kim) Flynn, and numerous nieces and nephews, of both Lexington and northern Kentucky, as well as his sister-in-law Marilyn Violett of Brunswick, GA.
