Jul 9, 1954 - Aug 2, 2012
Joe Reeb, 58 died peacefully at his home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on August 2, 2012.
Joe was born in Riverton, Wyoming on July 9, 1954 to Mary and George Alvin (Jerry) Reeb.
Joe spent his life proving that he could excel at everything he set his mind to do. He began his entrepreneurial career at the age of 9 when he started hosting backyard carnivals and selling worms to local fisherman.
While in high school Joe began his first career at Sears. He maintained his employment with Sears throughout high school as well as his college accomplishments which lead him to Cheyenne and Denver. After obtaining his degree in Denver he relocated to Casper, Wyoming where he used entrepreneurship skills full force to create the highly successful businesses, Rent to Own and Cost Plus Appliances in 1980.
Joe continued to build and grow his business throughout the state of Wyoming and Montana. Mr. Reeb had a passion for business and a true love of real estate. His love of real estate fueled his love for travel.
His adoration of hiking and the outdoors lead Joe to begin to split his time between Casper and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
He loved any outdoor adventure and could hike for days!
Joe was an extremely generous man. His heart warmed in sharing with blessings through Ryan’s Friends, the Casper Humane Society, and playing Secret Santa throughout his Casper and Jackson Hole communities.
One of Joe’s strongest heart felt passions was time with friends and family. Joe knew no strangers. He delighted in cooking, hosting, and entertaining – and everyone was always welcome. The more the merrier!!
In accordance with Joe’s beautiful, outgoing nature, his soul tickling laugh, and love of hosting and entertaining, a “Celebration of Life” will be held in Joe’s honor. The celebration will occur on September 8, 2012 at the Reach Foundation, 622 N 8th Street West Riverton, WY 82501. The celebration will begin at 1:00pm.
