Nearly 900 mourners, including NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, attended the memorial service Tuesday for former Glendale Community College football player Garrett Reid, the son of Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid.
Reid, who was an offensive tackle at Glendale college for part of the 2003 season, died Sunday in his dorm room at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., at 29. The service was held at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Broomall, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia.
Reid, the oldest of five children to Tammy and Andy Reid, a former standout Glendale college football player, had been working as an unofficial camp assistant to the team's strength and conditioning coach at the Eagles' training site at Lehigh. The cause of death has yet to be determined and an autopsy was expected to be completed this week, though Andy Reid, in a family statement released by him Monday night, hinted that Garrett Reid, who had struggled with drug use, "lost the battle that has been ongoing for the last eight years."
