FAIRFIELD, MAINE--Randall L. Reynolds, 63, of Fairfield, Maine was suddenly called home to Heaven on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, with his daughter, Diane, by his side. He fought a brave and courageous battle against pulmonary fibrosis. Randy was born on July 18, 1950, in West Stewartstown, New Hampshire. He was one of five boys and two girls born to Verne and Margaret Reynolds. He attended school in Colebrook, New Hampshire until the 9th grade when he quit school to work to help support his family because of his father’s health issues. He later earned his GED through the Army GI Bill and he proudly served his Country in the United States Army Company D 5th Battalion Artillery Division during the Vietnam War. After his Honorable Discharge in March of 1972, he moved to Maine where he married and started his family. He was the proud father of three daughters, Jennifer Frappier of Waterville, Maine, Jessica Cates of Winslow, Maine, and Diane Pierce of Fairfield, Maine. He worked all his life as a truck driver. For almost 25 years he worked for West Lynn Creamery making daily trips from Winslow, Maine to Lynn, Massachusetts hauling milk. He earned several safe driver awards, including logging over 2 million accident-free miles. For the past 8 years, until his health forced him to retire in September of 2013, he worked for Marden’s Inc., at the warehouse in Winslow, Maine driving the yard truck and moving trailers. Randy was a very social person who had a great sense of humor, a dry, quick wit and always a twinkle in his eye. He loved his family immensely. His favorite song was “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong and he was an avid NASCAR and Dale Earnhardt fan. Hopefully this year, Randy and Earnhardt will be enjoying the Daytona 500 together from the best seats in Heaven. By far, the greatest source of love, pride and companionship in Randy’s life was his relationship with his daughter, Diane, her husband, Billy, and their daughters, Lila and Ruby. Diane and Randy had a very special and extremely close relationship that never waned even as she married and started a family of her own. Randy developed a close bond with Billy that transcended the typical “in-law” relationship. They enjoyed a mutual love and respect for each other and were truly friends, probably closer than most typical fathers and sons. Being Lila and Ruby’s Grampa was the ultimate joy in his life. He was a constant loving and supportive presence in their daily lives and was happy to attend each and every one of their school functions and extracurricular activities. No matter if it was gymnastics, dance, field hockey softball, etc., they could always count on Grampa to be there watching with pride and cheering them on. His passing will leave holes in Diane, Billy, Lila and Ruby’s hearts and lives that will never be filled. He also enjoyed very special and close relationships with his brother Scott Reynolds and his wife, Brenda, of Clinton, Maine, his brother Verne Reynolds and his wife, Paula, of North Strafford, New Hampshire and his niece, Melissa Williams and her husband, Bruce, of Fairfield, Maine. During his last weeks, Scott, Verne, Melissa and Bruce all helped care for Randy in his time of need. When Randy wasn’t with the family he loved so much, you could find him spending time enjoying the coffee and the company at his favorite local donut shop. He cultivated many special friendships there and to Lila and Ruby it became affectionately known as “Grampa’s office”. Randy was greeted in Heaven by both his parents; his brothers, Bill and John; and his sister, Elizabeth Fortier. He is survived by his three daughters; his two sons in law; his eight grandchildren; his two brothers; and his sister, Eva Wheeler and her husband, Bob, of Virginia; as well as a huge extended family of cousins, nieces and nephews. Randy’s wishes were to be cremated without a funeral, but a graveside service will be held at Tozier Cemetery in Fairfield, Maine in the spring. When you’re weary, feeling small, When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all. I am on your side when times get rough, and friends just can’t be found. Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.
