OBITUARY: Larry Jerral Reynolds


Larry Jerral Reynolds passed away on February 23rd, 2024 at the age of 84.

Mr. Reynolds was born in Smith County to the late Robert and Margaret Reynolds.

He is also preceded in death by his beloved bride of 48 years, Donna Lou Prince Reynolds.

His legacy will be continued by his son, Heath (Cindy) Reynolds of Castalian Springs; his daughter, Michelle (RC) Simmons of Gallatin; his three granddaughters, Ashley (Jeff) Glass of Hendersonville, Whitney Holifield (fiancée, Bryan Judd) of Lebanon, Tyler (Rodriguez) Turner of Gallatin; as well as six great-grandchildren; Jarrett Glass, Jacob Holifield, Ayden Weiss, Jordan Glass, Jonah Holifield and Mya Weiss.

Mr. Reynolds was a long-time member of College Heights Baptist Church and was a believer in Jesus Christ.

As a young man, he served in the United States Air Force for four years, as an Aircraft Technician and during that time he saw a great deal of the world. Returning home, he was an electrician by trade and a member of the IBEW. He worked at the General Motors, Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee for over 20 years until retiring. He then worked on the farm of Mr. Jim Rainey in Gallatin for 8 years until ultimately retiring in 2012.

Though Mr. Reynolds lived a very long and full life, at his core he was a simple country boy, who loved to be outside mowing his grass and growing things in the garden. His family will be hard pressed to ever smell freshly cut grass without thinking of him.
