Johnny Coleman Ream

The world lost a good one. He was a man who loved working with wood and building things for friends and family, mowing grass, and watching Westerns on television. He could fix anything, no matter how broken, he found a way to fix it. He was a man who loved to spend time with his family and friends and was known for his infectious laughter. He will be deeply missed by the family he loved so dearly. Johnny Ream passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, February 23, 2021. He was born in Brazil on October 23, 1936 to Clarence Albert Ream and Lelah Eva Cottom Ream. Johnny was a home builder and he built several subdivisions in Terre Haute with his father-in-law.
