Williams and Sivie’s Very Inspiring Patient of the Week!

THIS IS BILL REID. He is the Grandfather of one of our hygienists, Meredith Moore. He came in as a new patient this week and he has a tremendous life story.

He is 93 years old, he served in WWII and was also a member of the U.S. Coast Guard. He has traveled all over the world—either for pleasure, duty, or through missionary work. He has a love for fishing and shared a great story about fishing in the Bering Sea. He caught an 1100-pound Blue Marlin; with the help of 4 others, he spent 2 hours reeling in the whopper!! He also took Meredith fishing for the very first time and taught her the tricks of the trade.

Mr. Reid has a very loving family of 3 adult children, one being the result of a foreign adoption; 8 grandchildren, and over 10 great-grandchildren. He just seems to have a true love for life and is very content with his legacy. He is shown here with Meredith and 2 of his great-grandchildren!!
