William Reece passes away

Recommended Posts

Ive learned that William Reece - the director of Kings Islands Wild Animal Habitat from 1977-1992 passed away today.

Mr Reece joined KI after the management agreement with Lion Country Safari was discontinued.  He led the entire Wildlife team for 15 years - much to the enjoyment of millions.

After (P) KI removed they Wild Animal Habitat, many of the animals were transferred to “The Wilds” in central Ohio where Mr Reece transitioned to Executive Director for the rest of his career.

I know that he returned to KI With his family last season to pay a visit to his old workplace which he loved dearly.

For those of us that were able to experience the Wild Animal Habitat attractions at KI, this is a sad day. 

Thank you Mr Reece - RIP.
