Carson Dillard Reed, 21, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 10, 2021. He was a great son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend. He grew up in both Jonesborough and Johnson City, Tenn., where he was a superb ball player and graduate of Science Hill High School. He continued his education at Bryan College on a baseball scholarship then decided to pursue pre-pharmacy at Northeast State Community College in the fall of 2021. He was employed by Reed Pharmacy and was honorably the lead Pharmacy Technician.
Carson was loved by all. He loved being outdoors, in the mountains, and singing karaoke, but most importantly, he loved telling people about God and how much He loves us all. He continuously showed how we should all love one another and had a contagious laugh and sense of humor.
Carson was preceded in death by his grandfather, Russell D. Reed; great-grandparents, Clifford Reed and Bessie Bacon; and aunt, Mailan Reed.
He is survived by his mother, Mailee Reed and fiancé Troy Baker; brother, Cameron Cook and wife Monica Cook (Milahnia and Hazel); sister, Caitlin Lindsay and husband Ryan Lindsay (Rylin and Portlyn); brother, Christopher Lodge; grandmother, Nguyen Thuong Thi “Maily” Reed; aunt and uncles, Dr. Mailien and Mike Rogers (Meryck), Mylinh and Barry Dockery (Victoria and Carl), Steve Reed (Emiley, Audrey, and Ivie) and Phillip Reed, PharmD and Holly Reed (Cash, Skye, and Knox).
