Peter W. Reed, MD, 88, formerly of Lima, Ohio, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2018 in Charlotte, NC.
Peter is survived by his loving daughter and his two grandsons. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Lucille Reed.
Peter was born on December 19, 1929 in Pass Christian, Miss. He and his family lived in various cities around the country, but he experienced Chicago as his home town. Peter graduated from Carleton College with a BS in physics and zoology. He then earned his MD from the University of Virginia followed by a residency in radiology. Peter met his wife, Lucille, at the Parma Medical Center where they both worked. After a two-year stint as an Air Force physician in Sherman, TX and some time in Parma, Ohio and King of Prussia, Pa., they ultimately settled in Lima, Ohio. Peter worked in the radiology department of Lima Memorial Hospital from 1965-2000.
Peter was a quiet, reflective, deeply intelligent man. He had an inherent intellectual curiosity about life and was a life-long learner. He was small in stature and large in intellect. Peter loved to read and travel and he had an incredible breadth of knowledge on many topics. He was also extraordinarily generous, patient, and understanding. His family and friends will remember him as a brilliant, kind, and compassionate human being.
