It is with great sadness that the family of Merle J. Reynolds, 89, announces his passing at the Veterans home in Oxford New York. Merle is a Veteran of the United States Air Force and served during the Korean war. Merle is survived by his wife of 68 years Donna J. Reynolds, their children Kim Reynolds, Marlene Reynolds, Dean Reynolds, Ken Reynolds (Karen), daughter In-law Catherine Reynolds, brother Richard Reynolds (Lori), eight grandchildren, Adam Reynolds, Clarissa McAllister (Evan), Davin Reynolds, Shea Reynolds, Shannon Reynolds, Vanessa Reynolds, Rachel Reynolds, Ryan Reynolds, and his great grandson William McAllister. Merle worked for IBM for 24 years and retired in 1991. Merle blessed his family in many ways with his love and devotion. Merle was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and will be missed by all of us. Merle will be reunited with his father Merle, mother Rena, brother John, and son Brian in the Lords house. Services will be held at the convenience of the family.
