Daddy passed on Dec. 13, 2015, after a short, but courageous, battle with cancer. Daddy had a strong work ethic and started work as young as 8 and even drove the school bus as a junior and senior in high school. He served four years in the USAF, owned several small businesses and worked in road construction. He enjoyed fishing, gardening, collecting coins and LSU and New Orleans Saints football. Most of all, he loved God and his family. He passed his work ethic to his children and made sure they were all educated or had a trade. His sweet smile and generous spirit will be forever remembered.
Daddy was predeceased by his parents, Jess and Opal Reynolds; sister, Donna; infant son, James Reynolds; infant grandson, Brandon and infant great-granddaughter Madilen.
He is survived by his wife, Mickey Reno Reynolds; children, Deb Poore (Tom), Angie Webb (Mark); Melissa Reynolds, James W Reynolds Jr. and James Anthony (Tony) Reynolds; step-children, David Gantt, Jr. (Barbie); Jeffrey Gantt (Melissa); Jason Gantt (April) and his fur baby, Prissy. He is also survived by his siblings, Dean Goff, Wanda Byrd, Lotherene Holmes, William Reynolds and Gerline Reynolds. He is survived by 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Patel and his nurse, Lori, for the care and compassion shown to Mr. Reynolds during his illness.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
