Larry ReedIt is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Village Trustee Larry Reed. Larry worked generously and tirelessly for the Village of Forsyth. He served as a trustee on the Village Board for 15 years, as a trustee on the board of the Hickory Point Fire Protection District, as a member of the former Sunshine Rotary Club, and as perhaps our library’s biggest champion. The Mayor, Board, and all the employees of the Village extend our deepest sympathy to the Reed family. Information regarding services can be found here:
