Reed Roger

Roger P. Reed, 60, of Santa Fe, Texas passed from this life on September 26, 2015. Roger was born October 13, 1954 to John and Gloria Reed in LaMarque, Texas.  Roger was raised in La Marque and attended LM schools and lived in Galveston County all his life. Roger previously worked for Gulf Chemical and Metallurgical in Texas City. The plant shut down and Roger made his living in construction for various chemical plants and was most recently employed by Pasadena Tank Co. in Harris County.

Roger enjoyed impromptu camping trips and overnighters at the Texas City Dike. He loved to fish, riding his motorcycle and going to Galveston and surrounding counties to see different country music groups perform.  His favorite Austin music is by Jerry Jeff Walker, and Gary P. Nunn.  The thing he loved most was spending time with his children, grandchildren and his dog Sadie.  Roger has touched so many people from all walks of life; he touched them with a warm smile, a kind heart, and a gentle soul.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Kenneth Reed; and sister-in-law, Gretchen Reed.

  3. Roger was such a sweet Man, always had a smile on his face.

  4. Rest In Paradise Roger,
    You were an amazing man, a superb foreman when I worked for you at Pasadena Tank Corp. You always had a way of making me laugh when I was upset or mad. You told me one day, I had what it took to become a safety lady, I just needed to get off my *** Oops… I mean butt. 🙂
    Well, I messaged Roger the day I started my new job as the Site Safety Coordinator for another tank construction company. I think he was more excited than I was …Thanks for being such a good friend and mentor over the years Rog.

    You will be severely missed,

  5. Thank you Roger and family for allowing us to become part of your lives. Roger was a kind and gentle soul and will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. We have been touched by his smile and good morning greetings every day on FB. We enjoyed seeing him at Cruisers on Sundays for the weekly blues jam. Ben Herrington named us all “The Jamily” because we were (are) all regulars. The Jamily wishes Roger a good journey in heaven. His nephew John Reed said: Rest in peace Uncle Roger. I bet there’s a good honky tonk band playing for ya right now.
    With prayers and healing,
    Rheiner and Dorina Dinges
