After he became homebound, he spent his hours watching the birds in his front yard. One of Clifford's favorite hobbies was fishing.

Mr.Reynolds, aka Poppy, was so well respected by the Jones’ family. His love for his family, community and His Lord did not go unnoticed. How we love his whole family as our lives have been woven together in different ways throughout the years! Our prayers are with you. Take comfort that he is with our Savior and eternity is in his view…yet it will be a short time when you will see him again!
I'm so sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Clifford was such a sweet, kind person. He was my mailman when I was a little girl. I met him at the mailbox a lot of days and he would wait until I got back inside the house before he drove to the next mailbox. He was a blessing to me.
We send our Condolences to your family.We are so deeply sorry to hear about this, may God keep and watch over you all for days to come ??
Cathy, Pat, and Pam, So sorry for your loss. I remember when the Reynolds’s family filled the whole back pew at West Baptist. I know how hard it is to loose your Papa! God bless you all and will be praying for you. Janice Benton

We will miss our dear friend. Jim looked forward to his calls to Clifford. If Jim didn’t call, Clifford would call him.
Praying for comfort, strength, and rest. I know Clifford will be missed. He leaves a great legacy with his girls and family.Sending love and hugs.
Although I didn’t know Mr. Reynolds I feel like I knew him from all the wonderful stories I’ve heard from the family. Sounds like he was a Poppy to anyone who knew him. My condolences to the family and enjoy the memories he left you with.
So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. ????
Pat, Pam and the entire Reynolds family, so sorry to hear about your dad's passing. We will keep all of you in our prayers as you adjust to life without him.
