November 6, 1953 — November 6, 2023

(William) Reid Biberstine, 70, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 6, 2023, in La Porte, IN.

Reid was born November 6, 1953, in Rhinelander, WI to Joegene and Romanel (Reid) Biberstine and at a young age moved to La Porte, where the family grew up loving life on Pine Lake. He graduated from La Porte High School in 1972 and Indiana University Bloomington in 1976.
