William "Bill" Reid, 64, of Owensboro passed away Sunday, March 27, 2022, at U of L Jewish Hospital. The Surrey, England native was born September 30, 1957, to the late David and Joan Reid. Bill and his wife of almost 40 years lived in California where he worked with the wine industry. As a "wine ambassador," he imparted his knowledge of wines to customers at wine tastings. The fact that Bill was a winsome fellow who never met a stranger helped him make all feel welcome and appreciated. Bill was an avid fan of the San Francisco 49er's, San Francisco Giants, Golden State Warriors, and the Chelsea Football Club in England. He enjoyed playing golf, caring for his lawn, and having a daily coffee at Panera with his iPad. His positive outlook on life and a willingness to help other, especially his wife, revealed a servant's heart. Bill had celebrated over 15 years of sobriety and being a cancer survivor.
In addition to his parents, Bill also was preceded in death by his sister, Lorna Whalley; brother-in-law, James Wilson; his granddaughter, Callie Reid.
Those who remain to honor and cherish his memory include his wife, Zoe Reid; son, Jonathan Reid and wife Beth; grandchildren, Carter, and Landon Reid all of Owensboro; sister, Angela Wilson; brother-in-law, Mike Whalley; several nieces, and great nephews all of England.
The memorial service for Bill Reid will be held 2:00 pm Tuesday, April 5 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with visitation from 10:00 am until time of service. Ennichment will be in Resurrection Cemetery.
