Hubert Linwood Reeves of Tatnic Road, was called home to be with his Lord, Sunday, March 15, 2020.
He was born October 20, 1927 in Wells at his family farm to John and Lois (Bedell) Reeves; the 4th of 9 children. He attended Wells Schools and enlisted in the United States Army in 1945.
He married Pauline Gordon on August 2, 1947; married 52 years and raised three children. Linwood was the eldest member and Deacon of the South Berwick and Wells Christian Church. He and his wife were faithful servants to the Lord throughout their lives.
Linwood worked for over 43 years at Hussey Seating Company and was the first person to be given the position of Supervisor. He enjoyed many years spending time at his son’s campground on Chesuncook Lake, hunting and fishing.
Due to his childhood passion for flying, Linwood earned his pilot’s license at the Sanford Airport. He owned his own plane and enjoyed flying with his brother Paul.
