William “Bill” Edward Reddy Jr.

William “Bill” Edward Reddy Jr., age 55 of Thurston, passed away on Thursday, October 18, 2018, at the Pickering House. He was born on June 24, 1963, in Syracuse, NY, to the late William Edward Reddy Sr., and the late Betty Gibbs.

Bill was proud to be a Journeyman Lineman with IBEW Local 71. He was a proud husband, father and grandfather who cherished all the time he spent with his family. He loved sharing stories, making memories and was quite the jokester. Bill’s larger-than-life personality and contagious laughter will be missed by all.

He enjoyed riding his Harley, hanging out with friends, and going from one adventure to another. He knew someone everywhere he went and always remembered your name.

Bill is survived by his wife, Jackie Reddy; children, Will (Brittney) Reddy, Jeremy Britton, Candice (Michelle) Korbel, Jason (April) McCreary, and Brandon (Madalina) McCreary; and 10 grandchildren, Caitlyn, Willie, A.J., Allie, Caleb, Hunter, Hannah, Mya, Karlee, and Autumn.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Betty and Albert Gibbs; father, William Edward Reddy Sr.; sister, Sandy (Sonny) Gotham; and mother-in-law, Nancy L. Julian.

Visitation was October 22, 2018, and October 23, 2018, at the Johnston-Smith Funeral Home Chapel, Baltimore. Per Bill’s request, Caring Cremation will followed the visitation.

Memorial gifts may be given to the Pickering House, 282 Sells Rd., Lancaster, Ohio 43130, in Bill’s memory.
