The son of Mr. Chester O. Reeves has passed away.

Reeves, Richard "Joe Dick"
Memorial Services will be held Thursday, April 3, 2008, at 7:30 p.m. at Fountain Memorial Funeral Home for Richard "Joe Dick" Reeves, 56, who passed away unexpectedly Sunday, March 23, 2008, at Lafayette General Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. A family memorial service is planned at a later date in Portales, New Mexico.
Richard "Joe Dick" Reeves began life at Miller Hospital in Portales, New Mexico on the day after Christmas, 1951. He attended Lindsey Elementary School where he found his love for reading. He completed his Master's Degree in Education at Eastern New Mexico University and taught a large American Indian population at Jemez Springs High School in New Mexico.
Richard moved to Alexandria, Louisiana in 1993, while his wife completed her Army career. The Reeves family moved to Lafayette, Louisiana in 1998. His last assignment was as an English teacher at Lafayette High School. Mr. Reeves, like Lafayette High School, is known for unique student-centered diversity. After standardized testing in March of this year, he planned to work with his students on poetry with audio Power Point presentations. Mr. Reeves enjoyed woodworking, genealogy, fixing hand-me-down computers for his classroom, bicycling, NASCAR, and reading adventure mystery books.
Mr. Reeves is survived by the thousands of students he taught; his mom, Maxcine Archer Reeves; brothers, Lewis, Raymond and Paul; sister, Joyce Ward; his wife, Yolanda Archambeault-Reeves and his son Dennis.
He was preceded in death by his father, Chester O. Reeves, a survivor of the WWII U.S.S. Indianapolis.
In lieu of flowers, age-appropriate gifts may be given for Mr. Reeves' son Dennis.
