My sincerest condolences to Mr. Reynold's family, particularly Patrick with whom I went to music school under Mr. Reynolds at Iowa State. I once tried to call him "Jimmie Howard," but it did not sound right. I have to call him Mr. Reynolds because he was a huge influence in my life as a conductor, musician, and mentor to stand up to any problem, look it in the eye, and do what is necessary, including, if necessary, to "give it the middle finger." I have honored his example of caring for his students by a career in law helping those in need. I think back on his guidance and example often. Thank you Mr. Reynolds.

Having just stumbled onto this website, I want to add my condolences to Mr. Reynolds' family. As my band director throughout high school, he instilled in me an appreciation of music which has truly enhanced the quality of my life for the last 60 years. Thank you, J. Howard.

As we near the year anniversary of Mr. Reynolds' passing I am happy to discover this guest book. I was in his band at Iowa State University and he, along with his friend and colleague Joe Christensen made a profound impact on my life. I have been a college band director for 35 years and I hear his words every day. I reuse them with my students and they ring true everyday. He lives on in his students and the students of his students. As Dan Fogelberg said, "The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old. But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul. My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man. I 'm just a living legacy to the leader of the band." RIP Jimmie. For a debt I can never repay.

I knew Mr. Reynolds at LA Tech during the years of 1963-1967. I play string bass and was very flattered when he invited me to play in the concert band. When he was conductor of the South Arkansas Symphony, I rode with him to rehearse in El Dorado Arkansas carrying the string bass in the back of his Rambler Wagon. I've thought of him frequently through the years and so sorry to know he is no longer with us. My sincerest condolences to his family.

Jimmie revived a long dormant tradition of community band music in Petaluma. I'll always appreciate that he encouraged me to start making music again.

Mr. Reynolds made a great impact on my life. Donna and I had lunch with him on two occasions during the past year. He taught me about music with emotion. I will miss him.

The passing of my old friend, Jimmie Reynolds, was received with sadness. His was a life well lived, and it was a joy and an honor to have performed with him at LSU back in the early '50's. In 1990 the Baton Rouge Concert Band played at a riverside festival in Shreveport. Jimmie was there, and it was a delight to see him, and that he instantly remembered me after all of the years and the many people whose lives he touched. My deepest condolences to his family and many other friends.
