Doug Reeves, 73, passed away peacefully at his home near Delta, Colo., on May 8, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. His strength and determination was with him thru the end, as was his sense of humor and love of friends and family.
He was born in Alliance in 1945, and graduated from high school in Rushville in 1963. Although he was born a city slicker, he was a cowboy at heart and loved being at, or in, rodeos.
He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served a tour of duty in Vietnam before being honorably discharged.
He is survived by his wife Dee, son Jared, and brothers Ron and Gary. Services are pending with a tentative date of May 25, 2019, in Delta.
