Francis Joseph Reeves

December 2, 1922 ~ August 18, 2013

Francis Reeves was born December 2, 1922, in Ephrata, WA to Arthur and Anna Reeves, and he died Sunday, August 18, 2013, at his home in East Wenatchee. He married Hazel V. Treichel on May 23, 1942. They had three sons, David, Gary, and Samuel. They made Wenatchee their home, where Francis worked in the heavy construction industry. They purchased their first orchard at Entiat in 1967, and operated it until 1971. They moved back to Wenatchee until 1978, when they purchased an orchard in Cashmere, which they operated until 1981. They moved to East Wenatchee, where he resided for several years. Hazel died in September of 1987. In 2007, Francis purchased two acres past the airport in East Wenatchee, where he planted a small orchard with his son, Gary, and remained there until his death.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Hazel; his son, Samuel; and brothers, Arthur, Clarence, Robert, Donald and James. Survivors include his sons, David of Wenatchee and Gary (Dreana) of Wenatchee; his sister, Catherine Hayes of Chelan; grandchildren, Jason Reeves, Andrea Lorentzen, Jeremy Reeves, Anthony Reeves, Heather Culp and Amanda Reeves; and several great-grandchildren.

A Graveside Service will be held Tuesday, August 27, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at Evergreen Memorial Park in East Wenatchee. Arrangements by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
