BRODHEAD - Michael A. Reavis, Sr., age 71, passed away with his loving family by his side on Sunday, May 11, 2014, after a courageous two-year battle with cancer. He was born on March 9, 1943 in Beloit, WI, the son of Perry and Ernestine (Wilson) Reavis. He was united in marriage to Marie Frie on July 23, 1961. She passed away on Dec. 20, 1972.
