Reynold attended elementary school in Gladmar, SK and high school in Minton, SK. In grade 10, he quit school and started his life farming with his Dad. He loved sports and was a pitcher for the Gladmar Braves fastball team for many years. He curled with Ernie Dahl, Alvin Eikemo and Art Lunde. He was a board member of the Radville Co-op, the Gladmar Bowling Alley, RM Councillor for several years, the Gladmar Curling Club and the Minton/Gladmar United Church.
Reynold travelled to Montreal for Expo 67 with Alvin Eikemo, Ted Fladeland, Harold Lunde and Andre Vigoureux.
On November 4, 1967, Reynold married Glenda Blackmore and they travelled to BC. Glenda said that is when the travelling ended for the big trips. Family trips were mainly to Edmonton, AB to visit the Start family.
Although Reynold grew up in a small family, he became part of a large family when he married Glenda. When he moved to Weyburn, he made many new friends through the old time dances and coffee get togethers. Friends and family were most important to Reynold.
Reynold was proud of his kids and what they have accomplished in their lives.
