I have so many fond memories of Larry! No matter what age I was he always made me feel special with his jokes and silliness. I thank God for my extended Michigan family and pray that He will give peace to you all. Love you!

Our family benefitted greatly from Larry’s warmth and good humor. Along with his beloved Angie, he braved the nastiest soccer weather and bleachers for the grandkids. He shared many a joyful summer with family at the cottage. Anyone traveling nearby in Florida was given his open invitation. Fondest condolences.

Larry’s presence and humor always gave me a sense of calm when working with him at MDOT, as the ‘new kid on the block’. I will always fondly remember him. My deepest sympathy to his family. Stay strong.

Larry was a tremendous person to have on our team! Such a pleasant person, got the job done correctly and that was during the infancy of the automation age. Wow, he kept meetings with his business partners very light hearted! He would frequently get me laughing due to his spur of the moment humor. Larry’s name brings a big smile to the face of all his work buddies. Lot’s of great Department of Transportation memories!!! God Bless Larry Reynolds!!!

We will miss Larry very much—as will “Linus” the cat who annually volunteered (with bag packed) to accompany Angie & Larry to Florida. And every year, with a broad smile, Larry said “no but thanks”. He took care of all of us on Wardell Road. Larry was our/his own transportation department—bar none. He took care of the deer and critters in the woods whereupon the deer now thoroughly enjoy eating Angie’s flowers.

Our deepest sympathies to you all and what wonderful memories we will always have.
