He was born in Smithfield to Golden Flatt Reeder and Lois Fontella Bingham Reeder. He was the youngest of 8 children. He attended schools within the Cache County School District.

Le Grand was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and held various callings and positions. His primary beliefs were God, Family, and Country; in that order.

He honorably served in the Korean war with his 3 brothers on the front line from 1950 to 1953. It was during a military leave that he met and then later married Leah Dawn Burbank. They were sealed as eternal companions in the Logan Temple on June 3rd, 1953. They cared for each other to the very end. He was her eyes, and she was his ears.
