Obituary: Richard William Reynolds
Richard William Reynolds, 89, passed away Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, in Prescott, Ariz., with his wife and dog, Tiger, beside him.

Richard loved life. He loved the peace and beauty of nature, music, movies, athletics, reading and riding his motorcycle. He was a philosopher of life; often encouraging others to make the most of their lives and especially those in his family. He was a man of integrity, dignity, generosity and thoughtfulness.
Born in Milwaukee, Wis., Richard served with honors in World War II in the Pacific Theatre where he earned a Purple Heart. After graduation from the University of Wisconsin, he went into the publishing industry. He worked for Time, Incorporated and then for Forbes Magazine for over 20 years.
Dick will be missed greatly by his family and many friends who both loved and admired him.

Mr Reynolds you will be greatly missed by those who knew you and more so by those who where yet to meet you. I was fortunate enough to meet you when I first came to Prescott in 1992. I was at a turning point in my life and your kind, encouraging words gave me faith in what the future may bring. You were very much like a father to me which made you bigger than life.
