William (Billy) Haralson Reed 57, He exchanged earthly life for eternal joy on May 7, 2020 at his childhood home surrounded by his loving family. William (Billy) was born April 17, 1963 in Toledo,Ohio to William F. and Vera Jean Reed.

God saw the road was getting rough, the hill hard to climb, God saw Billy getting weary; So He did what He thought best, God came and stood beside him, He gently closed Billy's loving eyes, As He whispered, "Peace be Thine my beautiful child...Come Home and Rest" The weary hours, the days of pain, the sleepless nights are passed, The ever patient worn-out frame has found sweet rest at last.

Billy attended Bowsher and Cardinal Stritch High School Toledo, Ohio At the age of eighteen Billy's first driving job was for Reed Trucking Co. In a Semi that his father built for him. Billy had numerous truck driving jobs during his life. Omni Source, Jerry Bibbs Trucking, Sam Earl Trucking, Jeff Boykins, Bobby Howard.

William (Billy) was preceded in death by his father William F. Reed; Paternal Grandparents Virley and Sarah Reed, Maternal Grandparents Walter McCown, John B. and Cleora Haralson; Uncles Charles and James Reed, Aunts Mary Tisdale, Phyllis (Sweetie) Fletcher.
