He loved life on the farm with his older sister and three younger brothers. He is survived by all four siblings: Elvon (Paul) Jacobs, Mack (Marie) Morrell, Dean (Miriam) Morrell, and Gordon (Connie) Morrell. Wayne county was a cherished home with numerous extended family, as all eight of his great-grandparents settled there. \n\nHe loved sports, especially basketball, baseball, and tennis. As a boy he would pay his younger brothers to play ball with him. He shared his love of sports with his children and grandchildren and he took time to play ball and attend sporting events with them.\n\nAfter graduating from Wayne High School, he accepted an appointment to attend the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, where he graduated in 1967. After graduation he served an abbreviated mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the New York Cumorah Mission. He continued to be a missionary throughout his life. He married his sweetheart and eternal companion, Pamella Susanne Capener, on December 8, 1967, in the Logan Utah Temple.\n\nHe proudly served his country as an Army officer in Thailand, Germany, and Texas. The family moved to Provo, Utah, in 1974, where he and Pam have lived since. He served in the 96th ARCOM Reserve Unit at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel after 22 years of military service. \n\nHe received a Masters of Education Counseling and Guidance with a minor in Ancient Scripture and a Masters in Statistics from Brigham Young University. He worked at Church headquarters for 27 years as a statistician. \n\nHe was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he enjoyed serving in various callings. He loved participating in family history work, attending and working at the temple, and taking his grandchildren to the temple grounds. \n\nHe loved studying the scriptures, especially The Book of Mormon. He always carried his scriptures, along with a clip board and a pen for taking notes. His grandchildren looked forward to their "Book of Mormon moment" with grandpa. \n\nHe enjoyed traveling and taking his family on road trips. Some favorites were: Bicknell to visit his parents, California to go to Disneyland, Washington DC to visit historical sites, and New York to show his children where he attended school at West Point. \n\nHe was a kind and humble man. He had charity and love for all and would minister to all. He was no respecter of persons and reached out to those in need. \n\nThe joy of Reed's life was his family. He and Pam are the parents of six children: Faith Ann Morrell, Lora Joy (Micah) Monson, Mary Grace (John) South, Megan Hope (Tim) Brunson, William Micah (Alisha) Morrell, and Desiree Dean (Ben) Jolley.
