Born on April 9, 1941 in Danville, PA, to the late Kathleen (Serff) Miller and Leo Miller, Reid spent most of his childhood in West York, PA where he graduated from West York High School in 1959.

Following retirement and being an avid Penn State Football, wrestling, and volleyball fan, he and Sue moved to State College, PA, where they could attend these sporting events more regularly. Late in his life, Reid moved to Hockessin, DE, to be closer to family.
