Wes Reynolds

Obituary: Richard Wesley Reynolds

     Our beloved, husband, father, uncle, brother, son and friend, Richard Wesley Reynolds, returned to his Heavenly home on January 21, 2001. He passed away at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah due to complications of heart surgery.

     Wes is the son of John and Marvelle Reynolds. He was born February 10, 1949 in Salt Lake City where he spent his childhood and young adult years. He served as a missionary in the Italy Rome Mission. Wes received a degree in statistics from Utah State University. He married Melanie Whittier on December 9, 1977, in the Idaho Falls Temple. He loved working with computers and was the neighborhood computer specialist. He was employed at Logan Regional Hospital as the Local Area Networking Manager and at the Bridgerland Applied Technical College as a computer specialist. Wes was loved by everyone who knew him. He was an unselfish and kind friend and neighbor. He was known for his sense of humor and some not so funny jokes. He always had some kind of treats to share. His four children, Wendi, John, Dave and Tanner were a highlight and treasure in his life. He was a high priest in the Logan 19th Ward. Wes served in many callings: executive secretary,scout master, high councilman, stake clerk, and deacons quorum advisor. He was a great example of a dedicated home teacher.

     Wes is survived by his sweetheart of 23 years, Melanie; his four dishwashers; Wendi, Johnathan (serving in the Germany Munich Mission), David and Tanner; his mother, Marvelle Reynolds and brothers; Don and Martin; and sisters, Jo, Jacque, and Jeanie. He was preceded in death by his father, John Reynolds.

     Funeral services will be held at 12 Noon, Thursday, January 25, 2001 in the Logan 19th Ward Chapel, 1255 North 600 East, Logan, with Bishop Paul Manning conducting. Friends may call at the Allen-Cranney Mortuary, 420 East 1800 North, North Logan on Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. and at the Church on Thursday from 10:30-11:30 a.m. prior to services. Burial will be in the Logan City Cemetery.

     Wes, we appreciate your unique character and the things we learned from you and shared with you. You will be genuinely missed.
