Reed Painter

Reed Painter passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. He was born November 14th, 1930 to Mark & Irene Painter. He is the 6th of 11 children.

Reed was raised in Logan, Utah. When he was nine years old he started spending his summers working on his uncle’s ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He has many fond memories of those summers. It was the real wild west with no electricity or running water and it was a time of real cowboys.

On November 20, 1964 Reed Married Linda Brown in the Logan Temple. Soon after that, Reed earned his second masters degree in library science. He was then offered a job at USU in the Merrill Library where he worked as a senior librarian for 33 years. They built their current home in Providence, UT in 1966.

Reed was a natural comedian. He loved to tell his “stretchers” and of course all of his stories were true. He loved gardening & watching his family grow.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Mark and Irene Painter. His siblings Cecil, Bill, Daphne, Rush, Glade and Marva. He is survived by his wife, Linda; children, Kristy Painter, Kelly (Robert) Parkinson, Carrie (Tex) Keen, Hafin (Jenny) Painter; 14 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. He has 3 grandchildren serving missions. He is also survived by his brothers, Keith (Marie), Neil (Joan) and Merle (Terry) Painter and sister, Susan (Pete) Kendrick, and a sister-in-law, Evelyn Painter.
