Reid Wiley Memorial Scholarship
Reid Wiley was an active athlete in many different competitive sports including Hockey, Paint Ball and Disc Golf. Reid was born in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada on September 3, 1992. He was a fun loving kid who enjoyed participating in all sports but found his passion learning to skate and ultimately playing hockey. Reid moved to Medina, Ohio in the spring of 2000 with his family and began his USA Hockey career playing in Parma, Ohio for 2 years and winning Championships as part of that organization. Reid transitioned to Strongsville Youth Hockey when the new arena opened and continued his successful minor hockey career winning championships at the Peewee and Bantam levels. Reid went on to play for the Cleveland Junior Jacks, Medina High School, Wooster Oilers Jr. team and finally ended his career playing 5 years for the University of Akron.
Reid was a fighter both on and off the ice. He had asthma from a very young age which made it very difficult for his hockey career as well as off the ice. On December 29, 2020 Reid lost his life to complications from Asthma. His death was sudden and a shock to all he knew and was particularly difficult on his family.
Reid’s best friend and hockey teammate Aaron Musick began a Scholarship Fund shortly after Reid’s passing in an effort to give kids that possessed the same attributes as Reid an opportunity to play the game they both loved. The donations poured in for this charitable act of kindness and today we are able to fund the Scholarship as a result of the heartfelt wishes initiated by Aaron Musick.
The Reid Wiley Scholarship Fund is dedicated to offering funding for those in need and those that possess the individual and team characteristics that Reid so proficiently delivered every day.
