Jack T. Reynolds

March 21, 1929 - May 27, 2017


Jack T. Reynolds of Bellingham, WA passed away on May 27, 2017, surrounded by the love of his family. Jack was born on March 21, 1929 in Bellingham, WA to Bernard and Mary (Gallagher) Reynolds. His family immigrated to America by way of Ireland, New Zealand, and Canada. He was a proud Irishman and an even prouder American. Jack served his country in the Korean War as an Army gunner. His strong work ethic was unparalleled as was his love for his family and friends. Jack worked various jobs in construction, mainly in the floor covering industry. He loved to tell stories about his life, the places he worked and the people he met; he was always there with a story and a smile to brighten someone’s day. His faith in God guided his truly positive attitude and outlook on life. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his first wife and mother of his children, Ida (Lanphear) Reynolds; second wife and longtime friend, Laura Raleigh; daughter, Jacquelene Reynolds; son, John Reynolds; grandson, Brett Emley; his mother and father; and five brothers and two sisters. He is survived by his sons, Patrick Reynolds and Brian Reynolds; daughter, Shari (Tony) Emley; grandchildren, Mia Reynolds, Joshua Emley, Shannon Reynolds, Cullen Emley, Kacia Emley, and his sister, Alice White.

The family would like to thank the caregivers at Eden Home Healthcare and the staff at the Bellingham Saint Joseph Hospital Emergency Room and Intensive Care unit for their excellent care and compassion.

  1. We have so many special memories of time sharded with Jack, including so many breakfasts together at Dave & Rose Loomis’s home and the times together we shared many times in our military uniforms, sharing memories of Korean Wartime Service.
    Very Special lasting Memories of our last visit with him at the Loomis’ residence when we shared about our common memories of time in New Zealand.

    Our Deepest and most sincere sympathy to all of the family as they nos grieve together.

    Loving Christian Care,

    Billy Joe and Maria Reynolds
