Stevensville - Robert “Bob” Reed passed at his home on March 7, 2021, with family at his side. He was born Aug. 25, 1940 in Missoula, the son of Homer and Emma Reed. His childhood was spent with a fishing pole in his hand, exploring the Rattlesnake and the mountain lakes of Western Montana. Upon graduation from Sentinel, he attended the U of M and played football for the Griz. He then went on to be a smoke jumper for several years. In 1962, he and Betty Olson were married, and enjoyed 59 years together. Bob began his career early as a car salesman at HO Bell Ford, and as Manager for 93 Chrysler Plymouth Dodge in Missoula, before moving to Stevensville where he opened Country Carriage and later Reed’s Auto Mart. His love of sports led him to start the Stevensville Booster Club, and with the help of many others, they spent countless months building the current track and football field. He loved spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and time at his place on the West Fork. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Gene. He leaves behind his wife, Betty, sons Mike (Monique), Jim (Paris), and daughter Debbie, all of Stevensville; as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. At his request, no services are planned. Thank you to all for your thoughts, cards, and condolences; as well as Marcus Daily Hospice and Whitesitt Funeral Home.

Dear Betty, Mike, Jimmy and Debbie, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Bob was one of the good guys. He always greeted me with a big smile and made everyone around him feel his warmth and compassion. He will be remembered as a hard working, honest and a respectable man. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Roberta Nicholas

We will always appreciate all Bob did for Stevensville Schools. The entire school and community benefitted from Bob's tireless work done without fanfare. He was amazing! He had such a kind heart, fun personality and great smile. We are sending hugs and good thougths. Kathy and Dale
