Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry to hear of Reed’s passing. He was such a great guy; full of hugs, a big smile and always some mischief. My heart is with Dorothy and the whole Satrom family.

  2. I was very, very saddened to read of Reed’s passing. He as one of those unique individuals that to me was almost larger than life.
    I knew him best when we played fastpitch softball together and I still marvel at his pitching ability and especially his physical stamina. He was the epitome of what is known as a workhorse. I still don’t know how Reed could will himself to pitch at the level that he pitched game after game for an entire weekend tournament but I saw him do it over and over again. He was an incredible pitcher. I’ve always considered him as one of the best fastpitch softball pitchers that North Dakota has ever produced. I’m glad that I got to experience him as my teammate.
    I know there was much, much more to Reed other than a softball pitcher but that was how I knew him best.
    His family has my sympathy.
    He will be missed.

  3. Uncle Reed- You were always so sweet to Danielle and I, and I will always remember that. Funny, silly and kind, Uncle Reed.

  4. So very sorry for the loss of Reed. He was always friendly and I enjoyed visiting with him when I saw him. May the memories you hold dear be a comfort to you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers ♥️.

  5. Reed to me was one of those friends that goes back to one’s childhood, the kind that sticks with you forever even over a lifetime. i lived across the road from him and the adventures that we had together over the years, are the kind that never leave your memory. Whether cracking rocks to reveal the “gold” inside, playing tennis at night under his dad’s pole light with a rope tied as the net, or sailing “pirate” ships made from discarded wood, and “sailed” on the the pond of water left in his dad’s pasture after a very large rain, he was always my “buddy’ my “pal”. We played endless hours together and laughed together, climbed trees together and welded a small plate to the bottom of a steel rod together so that we could play “golf” in our back yards. He was my boyhood partner. I shed a tear when I heard that he had passed.

  6. To Dorothy, Holly and the rest of Reed’s family,

    I was saddened to hear of Reed’s accident and completely blown away to hear of his passing. I know this is not an easy thing you guys are going through right now. But it does and will get better with time. I will keep you guys in my thoughts and hope that in time the overwhelming sadness felt now is completely replaced with all the funny, happy and warm moments and memories you were blessed with Reed’s way too short time here with us.

    God bless and my condolences,
    Anthony (Tony) Archer

  9. To my favorite Band/Music teacher(whip cracker/breaker of the 1/4 flipping crew) , Matt and Nate – better days are ahead, I promise. Take care you…….

  10. My condolences to the entire Satrom Family. One memory of Reed was that he had a tremendous voice when he sang. It is forever branded in my mind when he sang ‘Softly and Tenderly, Jesus is calling’ at my Step-Grandmother Bertha Ege’s Funeral. That was a tremendous performance of a real Spiritual song, and to you Carmen I pray God’s comfort during this tragic time. Reed was one great guy and I will never forget that performance at that funeral I mentioned. God Bless and comfort the Satrom Family

  11. Holly and family,
    Sympathies to you, your husband and children, plus your immediate family. Your Father has an amazing legacy with the love, the care for others and the good that are coming from your children and his grandchildren.

  21. To Dorothy and family,
    I just heard of Reeds passing. I am shocked and so sad.
    I have many memories with Reed growing up. Our parents were best friends. My earliest memory with Reed was playing hide and go seek, croquet and scrambling to find the prettiest or largest rock. We also enjoyed
    Many fun times on Lake Melissa where both of our parents had lake homes.
    I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you all are in my prayers…RIP Dear Friend.🙏

  22. Im the son of the man who was in the crash with reed and you will be missed by my family too. Rest In Peace.
