Stu R. Reece

August 16, 1960 - January 03, 2019

Stu R. Reece Stu Richard Reece, 58, of Cory, Ind., went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, unexpectedly, in the evening hours of Jan. 3, 2019, following complications of a heart attack.
Stu was born in Terre Haute, Ind. on Aug. 16, 1960, the son of Don and Carmeileta (Tague) Reece. Stu graduated from Clay City High School with the class of 1978. Following high school he earned a degree from Nashville Auto Diesel College in Nashville, Tenn. He returned home to work on his family's farm. His life became devoted to his farm, his family and his church.
Stu was a devoted member of Union Christian Church, in Terre Haute, where he was currently serving as an elder. He spent many hours volunteering his time with Clay and Vigo County 4-H and Boy Scouts when his sons were younger.
Stu never met a stranger. He loved to visit with friends and even people he had never met. He was always a big presence (with a big voice) at any gathering. He had a big heart and was always ready and willing to help someone in need.
He was preceded in death by his sister Belinda Sue (Reece) Butt.
Stu leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Connie (Favre) Reece of Cory; 3 sons: Jason Reece of Staunton, Jeremy Reece and wife Elaine of Cory, and Jonathon Reece and fiancé Bryanna Boyke of Terre Haute; 2 grandsons: Corbin Reece and Caleb Reece; his parents: Don and Carmeileta Reece of Cory; a sister Shelly Ream and husband Brian; brother-in-law Duane Butt; nieces and nephews: Keith Butt, Kimberly Butt, Kyle Butt, Lauren Ream, Kristen Ream, and Logan Ream as well as many extended family members and friends.

I am currently out of town so I won't be able to attend visitation...I send my thoughts and prayers to the family...Stu and I served on many Emmaus walks together and he was always an inspiration to me... He was a Godly man and I always enjoyed our time together... God bless and rest his soul...

Stu was a gentle man who lived his faith in quiet ways. He was a man with a true servant's heart for our LORD and his church family who did much of his ministry out of the lime light. I will miss his warm hand shake and smile.

Stu was a great friend and a wonderful example of what being a Christian means. I will miss his great sense of humor, too. He leaves a large void in the lives of those who loved him.
