Public memorial service scheduled to honor longtime Davenport Hotel doorman John Reed

Longtime Davenport Hotel Doorman John Reed passed away earlier this month at the age of 88.

On Thursday, the hotel he worked at for more than 75 years will hold a memorial in his honor.

Reed was hired at the hotel when he was just 13-years-old by Mr. Davenport himself, back in 1942.

A public memorial service for the Spokane legend will be held inside the Pennington room at The Historic Davenport Hotel at noon Thursday.
