Obituary

Dwight “Ike” Reynolds, April 9, 1935 – February 28, 2017. God was with Dwight throughout his life. At four, Dwight and his dog, Spotty , were lost in below freezing temperatures. Spotty kept him warm overnight, God kept him alive until they were found the next day. God was with him throughout his childhood as a bull pinned him to the ground. Also, when Dwight was playing in a cow’s harness and was choking, God’s saving hand was there. God was with Dwight as he grew into adulthood. Dwight was unhurt in car accidents that were described as unsurvivable. Dwight responded with a loving “ok,ok” as God called him to be with Him on February 28th. Dwight was predeceased by his parents Ralph and Lucy Reynolds; brother Earl (Odessa) Reynolds; brother Robert Reynolds; sister in law Elda Reynolds; father and mother in law James and Mary DeMatteis; sister in law Josephine DeMatteis and brothers in law Jim, Nick and Mario DeMatteis. He is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Vincenza (Vinnie). Vinnie dedicated the past 14 years as Dwight’s primary caregiver, meeting his needs with love, grace and a smile. Dwight is survived by their six children Maria (Tom) Mangino; Dwight Jr. (Nancy) Reynolds; Jimmy Reynolds; Michael (Lisa) Reynolds; Chris Reynolds and Anthony (Jennifer) Reynolds; twelve grandchildren; ten great grandchildren; a brother Richard and sister in law, Yvonne; sisters in law Concetta Howe (Dave) and Carm Welser (Ed). Dwight served in the United States Army, where he medaled as a top marksmanship and mechanic. He passed his knowledge and enjoyment for cars and car repairs. The two sports Dwight excelled at were Bowling and Golf. Dwight was retired from IBM Endicott. He was a member of St. Anthony of Padua Church.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Friday 11 am at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 306 Odell Avenue, Endicott. Entombment will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City at the convenience of the family. The family will receive friends at church Friday from 10 am until Mass at 11 am.
