1992 REID 2020


September 3, 1992 — December 29, 2020

Reid Charles Wiley, 28, of Akron, OH passed away December 29, 2020 to complications from Asthma, a condition he fought his entire life.

The son of Glenn and Mary Wiley, Reid was born September 3, 1992 in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Having moved with his family to Ohio in 2000, Reid accepted the challenge and grew as an avid Cleveland Browns fan. Reid graduated from the University of Akron in 2015 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Financial Planning and Services. He was also a member of the University of Akron Hockey team, a sport he enjoyed since the tender age of 4.

Reid was bigger than life in his personality and love for people. When Reid walked in a room it was game on. His smile was infectious and his personality lifted the room to a frenzy of fun.

He was caring, giving and supportive. He was fiercely loyal and was always there for anyone when they needed support. He never looked for accolades for his selfless acts of kindness. Reid was cherished by many, loved by all and remembered by everyone. Reid was an amazing son, brother, friend, teammate and man.

Reid is survived by his parents Glenn and Mary Wiley of Westfield Center, his sister Erin and her husband Matt Marsh of Plymouth, Michigan. He also leaves behind his paternal grandmother Joan Wiley; Aunts, Uncles and Cousins including Charles Davey, Kelly Davey and Tom Green, Teneisha Davey, Tristan Davey, Bailey Beldham, Brock Beldham and Natalie Emory, plus many other dear family and friends both in Ontario, Canada and Ohio. Predeceased by his Aunt Michelle Beldham.

Due to COVID-19 there will be no immediate services. There will be a private service in Canada and a Celebration of his Life in Ohio at a later date.

To honor his legacy, the friends and teammates of Reid have set-up a legacy fund to support future generations of Youth Hockey. Donations can be made at:

Arrangements for Reid were entrusted to Carlson Funeral Homes, 3477 Medina Road, (Corner of Rte 18 and River Styx Rd.) Medina, Ohio 44256.
