George Reid Jr.
SALISBURY — George Reid Jr., 91, passed away peacefully on Jan. 3, 2022.
Born on Dec. 10, 1930, in New York City, he is the youngest and last of four siblings who preceded him in death.
George went to Taft School (’49), and Oberlin College (’53), embracing history and jazz as well as becoming an All-American soccer player.
He had the fortune to go on as an educator, touching the lives of many young people throughout the U.S. and Switzerland.
His love for New England, specifically northwestern Connecticut, kept him here for most of his adult life — hiking, canoeing and enjoying the bird life of the area were some of his treasured pastimes.
He is survived by three sons, Michael, James and Samuel; plus many grandchildren, who love and will miss him very much.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kenny Funeral Home in Sharon.
