Leslie Dean Reid

January 27, 1960 ~ February 13, 2021 (age 61)


Leslie “Dean” Reid, 61, of Rosman, passed away on February 13, 2021. He was born on January 27, 1960 to the late Marvin and Margaret Reid of Rosman. In addition to his parents, Dean is preceded in death by his brother, Morris (Lois) Reid of Rosman.

He is survived by his sister, Melba (Berlin) Owen of Rosman; his brother, Ronnie (Rhonda) Reid of Lake Toxaway; his sister Dianne Reid of Rosman; his son Dana (Devan) Blackwell of Boiling Springs, SC; two grandchildren, Brody and Becca; many nieces and nephews; and three special great nieces and nephews, Sadie, Lilliana, and Mitchell.

He was a 1978 graduate of Rosman High School. Dean always looked forward to his next meal, knew all the good places to eat, loved having cookouts, and especially loved making homemade ice cream to enjoy with his family.

He was a big teddy bear of a man with the biggest heart of anyone around. He loved nothing more than doing, giving, and helping others.

Graveside rights will be held on Wednesday, February 17th at 2:00pm at the North Toxaway Baptist Church Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be mailed to P.O. Box 158, Rosman, NC 28772 payable to Dianne Reid to help cover the cost of funeral expenses.
