S. Sgt. Reynolds, who was serving as an engineer on a B-24 Bomber, arrived in Italy on June 1 and had 11 missions to his credit on June 10, according to a letter received from him by his parents. He enlisted in the Army Air Forces while still associated with the Production Plating Works here and trained at Miami Beach Fla.; Ft. Myers, Fla.; Sheppard Field, Texas.; Salt Lake CIty, Utah and Peterson Field, Colo.
He was widely known in athletic circles here as he and his brother Cpl. Vernon Reynolds, comprised the batteries for the championship Production Plating Team, managed by "Pop" Reynolds. His brother is somewhere in England.
Besides his parents and brother in England, he is survived by two brothers, Ralph and Eugene, at home.
