Doug Allen Reynolds was born January 16, 1960 to Marilyn Jane Reynolds, formerly Arnold, and Franklin Eugene Reynolds who went by the name Gene. He was born in Wichita, KS and he lived near Benton, KS at the time of his death on February 15, 2023. Doug was preceded in death by his father, his grandparents, and his sister, Sharyn Reynolds. He is survived by: his mother, Marilyn Reynolds; his niece Sidney Reynolds and her son, Remington; his aunts, Marlene Whittaker (Bob) and Marsha Johnston (Cecil); and his cousins, Brian Johnston, Susan Turner, Stephanie Colgan, and Steven Whittaker.
Doug attended high school in Andover and later attended Butler County Community College where he received an associate's degree in electronics.
He worked as a maintenance employee for the city of Benton and the city of Bel Aire. He also worked as a car salesman and various other jobs. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with cancer in 2013 and went through treatments until his cancer was in remission. He was unable to work full-time after the treatments.
Doug lived in the country and had some acres and a pond. His sister lived nearby until her death in 2016. He also lived near his mother for many years, until she moved into town. Doug passed away at his home where he was among the things that he loved and the hobbies that brought him great enjoyment.
When he was younger, he rode horses and was involved in barrel races and fun shows along with his sister, Sharyn.
Doug had two boats and loved to fish, he liked to work on various projects, and his special love was woodworking. He found pine trees on his land, cut them down, cleaned them up and shaped the wood into lamps, tables, curios, and other projects for his family and friends. He would also take things to flea markets and Benton Day's to try to sell his wares.
Doug was always ready to help other people if he was available. He has many friends and relatives who will miss him. He will always be alive in our hearts though his heart of gold has stopped beating and his working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. Even when the leaves and flowers wither, and the shining sun begins to set, the hearts that loved him dearly are the ones that won't forget.
