Community Foundation receives $1.3M; larges single bequestRobert Reed Jr

The Hardin County Community Foundation has received the largest single bequest in its 20-year history.
The $1.3 million bequest is from the estate of former Kenton attorney Robert G. Reed Jr.
Reed was born and raised in Roundhead Township. After graduating as valedictorian from Belle Center High School, he attended The Ohio State University where he received his undergraduate and law degrees with honors.
He then answered the call to serve his country and served as a Captain in the Judge Advocate General Corps of the U.S. Army. Upon completing his military service, Reed returned to Hardin County where he was engaged in the private practice of law in Hardin and Logan Counties for almost 50 years.
During that time Reed served his communities in a quiet and generous manner through his involvement with the Belle Center Presbyterian Church, Lawrence Valley Grange, Mary Lou Johnson Hardin County District Library, Hardin County Genealogy Society, Hardin County Humane Society and the Hardin County Community Foundation, of which he was a charter member and 20-year trustee.
“This significant gift to the Hardin County Community Foundation from Mr. Reed will allow us to greatly enhance our ability to serve the citizens of Hardin County,” said Judge William Hart, foundation president. “Bob is missed, but his extremely generous gift to Hardin County allows his spirit of giving and community service to live on.”
Founded in 1991, the Hardin County Community Foundation has assets in excess of $4 million and has given grants totaling more than $500,000 since the first grant award in 1993.
