Warren A. Reed passed away peacefully on Friday, August 24, 2018.
Warren was born and raised in Wyoming. He was the son of the late Warren and Kathryn (Emery) Reed. He was a graduate of Wyoming High School and Wilkes College. Warren served in the US Army stationed in Germany. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia (Adonizio) Reed.
Warren worked for WNEP-TV for over 40 years. He started while attending classes at Wilkes as a cue card holder and retired as the General Manager. He was most proud of the people he met and worked with while at WNEP and after retiring decided he would take up his other passion, helping animals. He was the Executive Director of the Lackawanna County Humane Society (aka Griffin Pond Animal Shelter) for 10 years and brought much attention to the needs of the stray animals of NEPA.
Warren was very active in numerous charitable organizations, helping anywhere he could and was an avid golfer. He was a long time Board Member of Glenmaura National Golf Club and had an occasional round or two with Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman. Although he had many accomplishments in his life, his greatest achievements were his children Joe and Pam. Their successes in life always made him smile.
Warren is survived by his children Joe Reed, wife Abigail (Williams) Reed and daughter Pam Mahasky, husband Philip E. Mahasky; grandchildren Kayla, Kalli, Karli, and Jackson; brother Tom Reed and his wife Nancy.
The family would like to thank all of his friends and former colleagues for their kind words to the family and Dr. Gerald Gibbons, the nurses of Hospice of the Sacred Heart and especially the staff of Timber Ridge Nursing Facility. The angels of the third floor who doted over Warren will always be remembered.
