"We are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord"-- 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
LC Reynolds went to be with Jesus on December 2, 2012. A celebration of his life will be held December 4, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at Centerpoint Pentecostal Church, Centerpoint, Louisiana, with Reverends Arlie Rowley, Douglas Belgard, James Paul, Jason Paul & Carl Francois. Interment will be in Lucas Cemetery, Deville, Louisiana, under the direction of Rush Funeral Home, Pineville, Louisiana.
LC was born to Barney and Martha Cole Reynolds on September 12, 1931. He was the oldest of 14 children. He was married to Lou Mae Reynolds for 53 years prior to her promotion to glory. He was a loving husband of 8 years to Margie Book Reynolds. He was a devoted father to daughters Bobbie Glascock, Ja'net Alwell, & Betty Lou Wiley, one son Terry Reynolds & one stepson Abram Marler. He was a wonderful grandfather to six grandchildren, seven step-grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and one great great step-grandchild who adored their Paw Paw LC.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Lou Mae Lucas Reynolds, his daughter Betty Lou, and two grandchildren William Alwell & Curtis Wiley.
LC worked for many years as a driller offshore and later in life was remembered by the younger generation in the community as the "ole" oil well switcher. After his oilfield retirement, he opened his own feed business and raised hogs for 15 years. People affectionately called him "the bread man". Everyone was welcome in his home at three o'clock every day for afternoon coffee. It was always a full house at coffee time for visiting, newspaper reading, playing with the grand kids, and Folger's coffee only.
LC gave his life to Jesus at 78 marking the beginning of a new life here on this earth. He told everyone of the beautiful transformation that God had done in his life. He had victory in his soul all during his sickness, and the very last words spoken were praises to God.
He is held in loving memory and survived by his wife Margie Book Reynolds, his daughters Bobbie Glascock, husband Larry, Ja'net Alwell, husband Gerard, all of Deville, his son Terry Reynolds, wife Rosie Lucius Reynolds of Harrison, Arkansas, his stepson Abram Marler of Kannapolis North Carolina, son in law Donnie Wiley, wife Janice of Deville, all of his "grand babies", his brothers, sisters and a host of nieces and nephews.
Pall bearers for his service will be Jeremy Alwell, Andrew Laprarie, Jonathan Sant, Donnie Wiley, Chad Wiley, & Jonathan Wiley.
