Reid's memorial service will be live-streamed here.

Reid S Carpenter, age 94, of Roosevelt, died on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at his daughter’s home in Neola.
Reid was born on July 8, 1927, in Thatcher, Arizona, to Frank and Lucinda Tyler Carpenter. He was the youngest of seven children. He married Clara Ruth Merrill on May 11, 1951, in the Mesa Arizona Temple. They had five children together. She died on April 30, 2018.
Reid lived a life of service. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico and Guatemala. He then served in the United States Army in Korea. Later, he and Ruth served missions together in Honduras and in the Guatemala Temple where Reid was able to continue using the Spanish he learned when he was younger, and his dear Ruth picked up the language quickly. Reid served for many years in the Boy Scouts of America. He ministered to others in several church callings including as a ward and stake missionary, a counselor in the Bishopric, and as a temple ordinance worker.
