Howie Reeves died Jan. 21, 2008, in Naples, Fla., where he and Shirlee were winter residents.
Known as “Charlie” in recent years — especially in Louisville, where the couple resided for most of the year — he was Howie in his undergraduate years and among Princeton friends.
Howie joined us by way of Scarsdale (N.Y.) High School. At Princeton he captained the freshman basketball team, was active in intramural sports, was a member of Cap and Gown, and graduated in June 1949 with honors in economics. He was at King’s Point Merchant Marine Academy from 1945 to 1946 and served in the Army from 1950 to 1952.
Howie’s career was in banking. After his Army service he joined the First National City Bank in New York City and became a vice president in 1956. He served what became Citicorp for 24 years. In 1978 he moved to Louisville and its First National Bank. At age 56, he and Shirlee Frazier were married.
Howie always enjoyed tennis and was a top player in his age group. He was a Giants football fan.
The class extends its sympathy to Shirlee and to Howie’s two stepsons.
