Fred Reed was born Nov. 16, 1942, in Silverton, OR, the son of George and Alma Reed, and resided in Molalla, OR, in his early years. He graduated from Molalla Union High School, where he excelled in football, basketball and baseball. He married his first wife, Kathryn Dreeszen, and had his first daughter, Debra, before attending Oregon State University, where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering.

After graduation, he moved to Gladstone and worked for Crown Zellerbach before a transfer in 1969 to Antioch, Calif. He adopted two sons in the late 1960s, Mark, and later Jess. In 1979, Reed moved to Albany and worked for the Albany paper mill Western Kraft, which later became Willamette Industries and then Weyerhaeuser. Reed advanced to the position of vice president/mill manager before retiring in 2006. At Western Kraft he met his second wife, Shelley, and they were married in 1984. Together they had a daughter, Devon.

In his off time, Reed liked hunting and fishing, and later in life golf, wood work and travel, as well as spending time with his family and friends. He was also an avid fan and contributor to Oregon State University athletics.
