Carlton "Bud" Reynolds

1922 - 2016 RICHMOND - Carlton Sherrill "Bud" Reynolds passed away on Friday, January 15, 2016, surrounded by three generations of loving family. Mr. Reynolds was born on November 12, 1922, the son of Arthur Lewis Reynolds and Ruth Sherrill Reynolds. Bud was educated during his first eight grades in the one-room Depot School and graduated from Pittsfield High School. He was employed by May's Engineering Company where he became a toolmaker before joining the United States Army during World War II. He was present at the famous Battle of the Bulge. He maintained the extensive property of Donald B. Miller, publisher of the Berkshire Eagle, for many years and he established his own excavating company. He worked well into his eighties. Known as a fine builder, Bud constructed his own home as well as helped to construct the building still used today by the Richmond Volunteer Fire Department. The flag at the Fire Department hangs at half-mast today in his honor. His happiest times were spent with children. He especially enjoyed the past 10 years with his beloved grandchildren, Mollie Sherrill Reynolds, AKA "Ponytails" and Burke Carlton Reynolds, AKA "Hot Dog". His gentleness, wit and kindness were loved by his many friends and family. As his nephew pointed out, Bud always made everyone feel like they were the most interesting person he had ever come across. Bud is survived by his wife, Margaret Sagendorph Reynolds of Richmond; his son, Scott Carlton Reynolds and his wife, Elisabeth of West Hartford, CT; his sisters, Judith Reynolds Hoermann of Barre, VT; Nancy Reynolds Benedict of Richmond, and Linda Reynolds Davis and her husband, John of Needham, MA; his brother, David Reynolds and his wife, Lois of Richmond; a daughter, Norine Karyl Reynolds, residing in Kentucky; five grandchildren and a multitude of nieces and nephews. FUNERAL NOTICE: A celebration of Bud's life for his family and friends will be held at the Richmond Congregational Church, 1515 State Road, Richmond on Saturday, January 30th, from 2 to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the William A. and Hazel B.
