Newport News High School Class of 1953

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
 
 We have another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter this Tuesday.  Paul Reynolds, Class of 1953, brother of Michael Reynolds of VA and Ethel Reynolds Spady of VA, passed away in Gloucester Point on Sunday, July 31, 2016 at the age of 81. 


From the Daily Press - 08/02/16:

       Paul B. Reynolds
   

 

 
    GLOUCESTER POINT - The local tennis community lost a long-time associate on Sunday, July 31st. Paul B. Reynolds, 81, died after a lengthy illness in Newport News, VA.

A Peninsula area resident for most of his life, he was born in Danville, VA, the beloved son of Sally Crider Ryan and Arthur Ryan.

An avid and skillful tennis player, Paul began playing at the age of twelve. He was a 1953 graduate of Newport News High School and attended Randolph Macon College where he continued his studies and tennis competitions. He was awarded a BA in Economics from the College of William and Mary in 1960 and enjoyed his professional career as an Industrial and Quality Engineer working primarily for the Newport News Shipyard and Liebherr.

After serving two years in the army, he fell in love with and married Emilie "Marie" Rue from Raleigh, NC. Together they raised their family in Newport News and Williamsburg. His first marriage ended in divorce in 1981.

He later welcomed Therese ("Terry") Nicholson into his life and they remained happily married until her death in August 2007. As fortune would have it, Paul and his first love, Marie were reunited and married in 2009.

 
Paul Reynolds
 
 
  He was a member of the Hilton Tennis Club for many years beginning in the early 1950s and participated in local tennis tournaments throughout his life. Many friendships were forged on the courts. Indicative of his quirky sense of humor, he was known to occasionally wear old madras Bermuda shorts instead of the standard tennis whites for matches with unknown opponents. Naturally, the other player would presume he was dealing with a "novice" and would proceed with unwarranted confidence, to his ultimate detriment.

In his later years he enjoyed golf and long daily walks. Outside of tennis, Paul appreciated his favorite TV shows, "The Price is Right" and "Wheel of Fortune", family, good food and travel. He possessed a dry wit which was thankfully passed on to his children, Rebecca and Paul.

He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Marie Reynolds of Gloucester Point, brother, Michael Ryan (Brenda) of Mascot and sister, Ethel Spady (George) of Smithfield. His two children, Rebecca Kinkead (Tim) of Williamsburg and Paul L. Reynolds (Janeane) of Hayes and step-children Claude Nicholson (Nancy) of Hampton and Cynthia Rice (Terry) of Buchanan, TN mourn his loss. He also leaves behind two grandchildren, Emily Kinkead (Charlottesville, VA) and Heaven Lamb (Hayes) and many others in his extended family. The match may be over, but LOVE remains.

A memorial service will be held at Bethany United Methodist Church at 1860 Hayes Road in Gloucester Point, VA on Thursday, August 4, 2016 at 11:00 AM. A reception will follow.

Cremation Society of Virginia, Newport News is assisting the family.

Expressions of sympathy may be sent to the Hilton Tennis Club, c/o Dan Simms, 57 Sweetbriar Drive, Newport News, VA 23606.View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.

  What Wondrous Love Is This?

Words by Alexander Means
Music by William Walker, 1835


What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath God痴 righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great 'I Am';
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when from death I知 free, I値l sing on, I値l sing on;
And when from death I知 free, I値l sing on.
And when from death I知 free, I値l sing and joyful be;
And through eternity, I値l sing on, I値l sing on;
And through eternity, I値l sing on.
