He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 47 years: Dorothy M. Reynolds, beautiful daughter: Susan Marie Jones, 2 brothers: Harry F. Reynolds II and Robert D. Reynolds.
He was our everything, our strength, leader, protector, and most of all, our best friends.
John was a devoted father, and avid hunter of 46 years. He enjoyed passing on his knowledge of hunting to others. He enjoyed watching the Green Bay Packers and teasing his son John Jr. when the Packers would beat the Bears. He was also a strong leader for the safety committee when he worked at US Steel, or later organizing the retiree’s gatherings. Our dad’s main love was for his family he loved deeply. He gave all he could to his family. He will be greatly missed by all.
In honoring John, please wear Green Bay Packer or camouflage attire when showing your respects for him. He wouldn’t want it any other way.
