Henry J. Reynolds was born February 5, 1945 in Batesville (Sandtown), AR. He was welcomed into his Heavenly Home on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at the age of 76 in Texarkana, TX.
He was a devoted husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend, as well as a life member of the Hooks Masonic Lodge. Henry always had a love for mankind and never missed the chance to share the Gospel of Jesus. He was always willing to minister to someone in need whether it be through the Friendship Center, or through the work of Christ.
With a strong work ethic and a mission-driven heart, Henry taught his children and grandchildren how to work hard and take pride in what they accomplished as well. He never missed the chance to read the Holy Bible to the children as he sat with them at night. It was his goal in life to make sure his children and grandchildren knew Christ personally.
Henry never met a stranger; his hand was always outstretched to everyone around him. He was always willing to help people no matter their circumstances. Henry was previously a Sheet Metal Fabricator at both Red River Army Depot and Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant.
