Obituary of Kevin Andrew Reid
It is with broken hearts that the family of Kevin Andrew Reid announce his passing on Saturday, August 27, 2022, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born on February 1, 1964, he was the son of the late Patricia (Craig) and Herbert Reid.
Prior to his retirement, Kevin was a proud member of Pipefitters Local 213 for 25 years. He was a major player in the trade movement of NB Pipes Trades as well as serving on their Pension Board. Kevin enjoyed dabbling in carpentry and was known to be able to build anything he set his mind to. Most of all, he loved his family (even being an agitator at times!) and especially spending time with his cherished grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by his family and many friends.
Kevin will be lovingly remembered by his sons, Chad Charlton and Josh Reid (Katelyn); daughters, Kassidy, Haley and Emma; sister, Dorothy Reid; grandchildren, Jada Vautour, Mackenzie Gionet and Avery and Connor Reid; nephews, Perry (Angie), Jordan, Edge, Herbert III and Evan.
In addition to his parents, Kevin was predeceased by his brother Herbie.
