Our beloved friend, John Reeve, 61, passed away Friday July 22, 2016. He was born December 15, 1955, in St. George to Ashby “Hap” and Iva Gibson Reeve. He has been married to Annie Stratton Reeve for 42 years.
He was born and raised in Hurricane where he worked most of his life on his family Ranch located on the Arizona Strip. This is where he worked his cattle and loved riding his horses. He was a jack of all trades, master of the minds and a fair windmill hand. If it looked like you needed help he would stop to help even if it delayed his plans. He really enjoyed when October would roll around so he could spend time with his family and friends on the “beer” hunt. He was a man of many words; every person he met he would give them a nickname of what he thought of them. He was a wonderful man that carried a lot of knowledge and will be missed greatly.
He is survived by his wife Annie Reeve of Hurricane; daughters Cassie Reeve and Camie Reeve of Hurricane; granddaughter Samantha Black of Spanish Fork and new grandson Dusty Rasmussen of Spanish Fork; sisters Vicky Hansen, Artie Stratton, Iva Lyn Wright and husband, Neil Wright, Bernice Reeve. He is preceded in death by his daughter Candi Reeve and Father Ashby “Hap” Reeve.
A special thank you to Dixie Regional Medical Center and Hospice for all their help.
