Mr. Robert Guy Reynolds
Mr. Robert Guy Reynolds, 78, of Louisville entered into rest on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2010, at Jefferson Hospital.

An out-of-state memorial service will be planned at a later time by the family. Mr. Reynolds, Bob, as he liked to be called was born to Rufus Guy and Edith Scott Reynolds who preceded him in death. Born in Chicago, IL to a very ill Mother who was having her first and only child at the grand old age of 40 years back in the early 1930’s with a serious kidney infection and none of the magic drugs of today to help her, only nursing skills to pull her through. She lay near death for over six weeks before being taken home to finish her recuperation in the southern part of the state. Robert was taken home by one of her older sisters to start a regular boy’s Midwestern life and grew up working in his uncle’s lumberyard so as to be a good high school football player. He played defensive tackle on a championship team in 1950. Bob was a U.S. Navy Veteran of the Korean era that was switched to the last occupation troops of WWII. So he and Mary Elizabeth Johns of Orlando, Fla., eloped and were married by a Baptist minister that was holding a revival in Folkston, so as to honeymoon on Uncle Sam’s dollar in Europe, later setting up housekeeping in Naples, Italy in 1953. Bob is a 1959 Mechanical Engineering graduate of Clemson University having gotten his degree on the G.I. Bill and been retrained as an Instrument Engineer by the Babcock and Wilcox Co. that for many years owned a refractory division here in Augusta. For ten years after college he worked for the Bailey Meter division of Babcock and Wilcox Co. building electrical generating plants, paper mills, and cement plants from the Northeast to Key West, Fla. He and his wife Mary next purchased a Mountain Lodge in Little Switzerland, N.C., which they operated for 14 years. Mary and Bob wanted to raise their children outside of the big cities of the U.S. When the last child went to college, they sold their business and climbed into a motorhome, and for three years roamed the USA and stopped in Tulsa, Okla., to attend a two year Bible School. After 20 years in Tulsa they moved to Louisville when Mary inherited half of a house and farm in the Louisville area. Bob’s happiest time since coming to the area was working with his friends at the Bartow Community Center the sponsor of the Schoolhouse Players in Bartow, founded by Mr. and Mrs. John Mancin III.

Bob is survived by his wife Mary Johns Reynolds of Louisville, son Douglas D. Reynolds, and his wife Colleen of Asheville, N.C., daughters Elizabeth Reynolds Drechsler and her husband Bruce of Tulsa. Okla., and Janet L. Reynolds of Tulsa, Okla., three granddaughters Jennifer Morris, Carolyn Adickes and Kristen Drechsler, one great-grandson Cole Morris and several close cousins in Harrisburg, Ill., and Riverside, Conn.

Bob was a member of Saint Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church of Louisville and treasurer until his health failed. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the Arts Guild of Jefferson County at Queensborough Bank and Trust office in Louisville, GA 30434 Attn: Tom Watson. or to St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 2, Louisville, GA 30434. \

Thank you, Southern brothers, for welcoming me into your bosom for so many years, I have felt love here.
