Longtime Center resident Larry Glen Reed, 80, passed away on April 16, 2020. He was born on June 22, 1939 in Worland, Wyoming to William and Florence Reed. Larry graduated from Cody high school in Cody, Wyoming in 1957 and achieved his Bachelor’s Degree in Science and Physics from the University of Wyoming in 1961. He honorably served his country in the United States Army. Larry moved to the San Luis Valley in the late 60s to start farming from the ground up. Over the next 50 years, following his dream of farming, he worked the land farming potatoes and wheat. On April 24, 1982, Larry married the love of his life, Vivian Janice Todd in Monte Vista. He cherished his time with Janice, especially sneaking away from the farm to drive up to the mountains for a picnic. Larry lovingly cared for his wife at home until her passing on December 1, 2015. Larry was a member of the Monte Vista Methodist Church.

Larry is survived by his brothers, Bill (Ann) Reed and Joe (Kathy) Reed, as well as his brother-in-law Glenn Todd and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Janice as well as his sister Janis Haeberle.

Larry’s wishes were to be buried in the Monte Vista Cemetery with his wife Janice. A private graveside service will be held. In lieu of flowers, contributions are suggested to the Trinidad Nursing Program and may be made in care of the funeral home office. To express condolences, please visit www.rogersfunerals to leave a condolence for his family.

Rogers Family Mortuary in Monte Vista is in care of the arrangements.

I am David Stone. I grew up on the farm next door to Larry when he first came to the Valley. My family and I enjoyed his company through the years. Larry helped us out the year my dad had a heart attack. I worked for him one year during potato harvest. Thank you, Larry, you did good and got it done.

This past December/January I got to visit with Uncle Larry on the phone. It was so good to connect with him. We reminisced over memories I had as a young kid visiting him on the farm. We talked a couple more times, his voice was as I remembered it and we had some good laughs together. I will miss his voice and laugh. May he rest in peace with our Lord now.

I knew Larry thru his wife Janice whose hair I did for 30 years!What a wonderful generous man! As Janice health declined I was so impressed by the way he lovingly cared for her!He brought her to her weekly appointment and as her speech declined he and I would have long visits while I was fixing her hair!He was such a interesting, intelligent man!I learned about his childhood in Wyoming and his college days!Janice and Larry had such a loving marriage,the kind that most people dream does my heart good to know they are back together in heaven !Rest in peace and it was a privilege knowing both of you!
