Buster Gayle Reid was born on May 2, 1927 in Bedias to Buster and Imogene Ruth (Wooderson) Reid and was preceded in death by his parents.
Buster was was a man of integrity and character. He loved the Lord and his family. He was a devoted husband and father. His love for his immediate and extended family was all inclusive. His life was built on the provision of his loved ones. He served in the Marines for his country and he lived out his life working hard for his family as a dairy farmer and rancher. He could grow the best hay in the county because he was willing to go the extra mile to do whatever it took. Laziness wasn't part of his vocabulary. You just do what needs to be done and never look back. Keep your head on the goal. Buster left a legacy of faith for his children and his children's children. A Father's blessing that will pass to a thousand generations because he loved the Lord, loved his family and was willing to lay down his life for what he believed in.
