David Reed

November 29, 1949 — January 23, 2024

David Jacob Reed III, age 74, of Chambersburg, PA, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at the Chambersburg Hospital. Born November 29, 1949, in Chambersburg, PA, he was the son of the late David J. Reed II and Catherine Gilbert Carbaugh.
Dave had attended CASHS. He worked for D.M. Evans for 25 years, retiring in 2015 as a warehouse manager. Dave was a member of the Moose Lodge, VFW Post 1599, Sons of the American Legion Post 46, and the Marine Corps League. Dave was a great athlete. He loved playing golf, especially in local tournaments. He played slow pitch softball for several teams over the years, including the Moose, Marine Corps, IHOP, and Kimples. He also enjoyed throwing horseshoes and darts. And when he wasn’t playing sports, he was watching one of his favorite teams: the Raiders, the Yankees, the Tarheels and Notre Dame. A kind and generous soul, Dave always tried to make a difference and to help others any way he was able.
Surviving is his beloved wife of 50 years, Cheryl Riley Reed, whom he married on November 10, 1973; two daughters, Yonnie Slimmer (Chad) of Chambersburg, PA and Shannon Reed of Bridgeport, WV; two granddaughters, Abby and Issie Slimmer; and three siblings, Princess Jean Mong (Bob), James Carbaugh, Jr. (Deb), and Penny Thomas.
