He served more than 62 years as a member of the Springfield Rotary Club, and that dedication, along with his involvement in so many community and club projects earned Tom Duncan Reed the nickname of “Mr. Rotary.”
Mr. Reed, a Springfield native, passed away last Tuesday at his home after a battle against pulmonary fibrosis. He was 86.
Over the years, Mr. Reed served in such a dedicated manner that the local Rotary club’s highest honor is now named in his honor, The Tom Duncan Reed Service Above Self Award.
