Reis M. Grams

August 16, 1983 — May 18, 2024

Lino Lakes

Reis Melvin Grams went home to be with Jesus on May 18th, 2024. Reis was born on August 16th, 1983 in St Cloud, MN to Bart and Sue Grams. Reis was the middle child, between older brother Erik and younger sister Katy. As one can imagine, Reis and Erik buddied up throughout childhood and came up with shenanigans sometimes at the expense of baby sister Katy. 

Reis grew up in Blaine and attended Blaine High School. He was very active and played baseball, football, and soccer. He scored his first soccer goal at the age of 3. Besides sports, a lifelong passion of Reis’ that began during childhood was fishing. His first fishing trip was in the Boundary Waters when he was 7. Some would say that this was his first true love. Over his lifetime, he visited the Boundary Waters with family and friends, often multiple times per year.

Reis met the love of his life, Angie, in 2006. They were married in 2010, and joyfully welcomed their two boys August and Teddy into the world in 2014 & 2016. Reis and Angie built a life together with their boys in Lino Lakes. He coached multiple sports the boys were in: football, baseball, soccer, and unofficially wrestling. Reis shared his continued passion of the Boundary Waters with his family, as well as his love of building homes in Mexico with Walk the Talk Missions.

Reis was a lifelong learner and absorbed any, and all the information that he could. He had a knack for carpentry and was a business owner for over 20 years. He was the proud co-owner of Touchdown Tile with his brother Erik, and also owned his own small business, Redeeming Homes.

Reis was a simple man. He loved his family, friends, traveling, exploring, adventure, and a good hazy IPA. But above all else, Reis loved Jesus. To his core, he lived a life to serve the Glory of God. Reis consistently made decisions based on what Jesus would do. We have found ourselves asking what would Reis do?

Reis is survived by his wife Angie and their sons August & Teddy, parents Bart & Sue Grams, siblings Erik (Laura) Grams & Katy (Jeff) McCann, father and mother-in-law Paul and Julie Fromm, brothers-in-law Adam Fromm & Jimmy (Kari) Fromm, nieces & nephews Gavin & Zack Grams, Isla McCann, and Mason & Mia Fromm. He is preceded in death by grandparents Melvin & Louise Grams, Marshall Blanchet, and Joyce Reznicek, and other loved extended family members.

A memorial service will be held at 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 11, 2024 at Renovation Church, 12390 Frazier Street NE, Blaine, Minnesota.  The family will greet friends from 2:00 p.m., until the time of service at the church.  To honor Reis as a coach, all youth are encouraged to wear jerseys or Centennial gear to his celebration of life.  The color green symbolizes glory, energy, God and the heavens so it's no surprise that it was Reis' favorite color.  In honor of the bright life Reis lived you are invited to wear green or any cheery color of your choice to the services.  Immediately following the service, all are invited to the Boulevard Bar & Grille in Lexington, Minnesota to share stories and celebrate Reis' life.
