Preston Reid, Class of 1975, passed away on Saturday morning, February 25, 2007 in Greenville, South Carolina, following a battle with cancer. He was 53. Preston practiced law in Greenville for almost 30 years; he was a partner in Howard, Howard, Francis & Reid, according to his family. Reid's battle with cancer commenced on Dec. 16, 2005. The Greenville community got behind him with "Go Preston" bumper stickers on an estimated 2,000 cars all over town. The outpouring of affection helped the battle, Susan Reid, his wife, told The Greenville News in 2005. "The thing that I've told people is I don't know how people get through this without a 'Go Preston' bumper sticker," she said in the 2005 interview. The couple was married for 28 years. Funeral services were held 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb 27, 2007 at his church, Buncombe Street United Methodist Church, 200 Buncombe St., Greenville. The visitation was from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at the church. Condolences were posted at www.thomasmcafee.com.
