Orval Keith Reeder, 81, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at the Bellevue Health and Rehabilitation Center in Oklahoma City.

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Keith ( the name he preferred) was the only child of Johanna Lucile (Keith) Reeder and Orval W. Reeder. He spent the bulk of his years in Oklahoma City. He did, however, spend his teenage years in California. After graduating from High School, Mr. Reeder joined the United States Navy where he was an Avionics Technician and Aircrewman (Anti-Submarine Warfare Systems Operator). After serving with the Navy he took what he learned there and pursued a career in the Aerospace Industry. He had a passion for Aviation and took pride in his work. That, along with his considerable expertise, led to a long and very successful career that included employment with defense contractors Lear Siegler Incorporated and E-Systems Inc. (Raytheon), from which he ultimately retired. He began his career as a Technical Representative and ascended to Marketing Executive. He spent his final years in Bethany, Oklahoma as a Consultant.
