Jimmy Delter Reed entered his Heavenly Home on May 30, 2023. He passed away at home, surrounded by his family, after a short battle with lung cancer. Jimmy was born August 22, 1947, in Oklahoma City, to Delter and Ethel (Hollingshead) Reed. He married the love of his life, Teresa Reed, on October 27, 2003. Jimmy frequently said, “Jesus brought Teresa to me and Teresa brought me to Jesus”. He gave his life to Jesus and became a member of the Catholic Church. Jimmy was very social and had many friends. Everywhere he went, he ran into someone he knew. Jimmy worked for 32 years at Lucent Technologies and retired in 2001. At that time, he moved to his little piece of Heaven on Earth at Lake Eufaula, where he lived until relocating to Yukon, OK in 2021. Jimmy absolutely loved fishing and fished daily, for many years, in retirement. In his younger years, he spent his free time racing motorcycles and still enjoyed watching motorcycle races and Nascar on television and watching his grandchildren play sports. Jimmy loved his family fiercely, and adored his little dog, Zoe. Jimmy is preceded in death by his parents, Delter and Ethel, his wife Teresa, brother Donnie, and sister, Mary. He is survived by his two daughters, Gayla Cook (Craig) and Chrissy Wood (Brad); his three step-children, Johnny Workman (Vickie), Tiffani McKenzie (Brad), and Dustin Workman (Traci); his sister, Lela DeHart; his grandchildren, Chad, Holly, Zack, Baylee, Payton, Garrett, Kenton, Ethan and Kynlee; great grand-son, Bentley; and many other family members and friends.
