Bobby "Big Daddy" Reeves

September 17, 1936 ~ November 19, 2021 (age 85)


Bobby “Big Daddy” Reeves 85 left this world on November 19th.

He was born in Washington, DC on September 17, 1936. He faithfully served the DC Fire Department for 33 years, retiring as a Battalion Fire Chief.

His greatest love was his family. He seldom missed a ball game played by his children and grandchildren. He was a master of telling jokes, playing jokes on his family and friends, playing golf with the FROGS and was an avid follower of the Redskins.

He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years Jill; three children, Tamra Foley (Pat), Scott Reeves (Donna), Mike Reeves (Patty); seven grandchildren Ryan Reeves (Cortney), Kevin Reeves (Lauren), Sara Berset (Chris), Cody Reeves (Kate), Amanda Foley, Abigail Reeves and Jack Foley; along with seven great-grandchildren.

He loved life and having fun. He welcomed everyone, had no enemies and once you met him you had a friend forever.

A celebration of life will be held in the Spring 2022. An announcement will be made at that time.
