John Earl Reely
July 14, 1938 ‒ September 20, 2018
John Earl Reely, 80, of Ashley, OH, passed away in Delaware, OH, on September 20, 2018. John was born in Ashley, OH on July 14, 1938 to the late Ralph John Reely and Inez Eileen Rollins Reely. In his younger years, John could be found spending time with his family on their farm. As an adult, John was a builder by nature and enjoyed working with his hands and loved a good round of golf. John was very talented at building things and used those talents in designing homes. However, if asked what made him proudest in life he would most assuredly say his daughters.
John was, in addition to his parents, preceded in death by his daughter, Brenda Coykendall and his brother Ed Reely.
John leaves behind one daughter, Laura Jackson of Delaware, sisters, Joan (George) Patterson, of Ashley, Shirley Reely, of Delaware and a legacy of 6 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren along with numerous nieces and nephews.
A graveside service celebrating the life of John Earl Reely will be held at the Ashley Union Cemetery on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at 6:00 pm with Pastor Marvin Hintz officiating. Those wishing to share a memory of John or leave online condolences may do so at www.SnyderFuneralHomes.com
