Mr. Alan Philip Reeves died Monday evening, October 3, 2022, after spending his last days at home, overlooking his beloved Big Cedar Creek. He had been married to his Berry College sweetheart for 45 years at the time of his passing.
He was born March 15, 1956 to Frank and Frances Reeves of Fayette County. He is survived by his wife Barbara, his son Philip Reeves (Carley), and his daughter Erin Reeves McGinnis (Gavin). He loved his grandchildren dearly: Coby Reeves, Maddox McGinnis, and Jaxon McGinnis.
He was immensely proud of his two older brothers Walter (Decatur, GA) and Robert (Madison, GA), and his two younger sisters Carol (Fayetteville, AR) and Nancy (Cartersville, GA).
Prior to his retirement, Alan worked for Georgia Power Company for 35 years. He held a variety of positions at power plants throughout Georgia and developed deep friendships across the state.
In retirement Alan volunteered at Cave Spring Elementary, and was actively involved with the Fairview-E.S. Brown restoration project. He was blessed to be a member of the Cave Spring United Methodist Church where he taught Sunday School for about 25 years.
Alan enjoyed repairing things, making that lawnmower last just a little bit longer. He stated that he could fix “anything but a broken heart,” and he left many broken hearts behind.
If you wish to do something in memory of Alan, the Cave Spring United Methodist Church will accept your donation. He supported the Fairview-E.S. Brown project and CRBI.
The family wishes to thank the doctors and staff at Advent Health Redmond, The Harbin Clinic, Emory-Midtown, Heyman Hospice, and Atrium Health Floyd.
A celebration of the life of Alan were held on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at 2:00pm at the Cave Spring United Methodist Church.
