Robert "Bob" Reynolds Jr. Obituary

Robert "Bob" Reynolds Jr., 67, of White Haven, a 33-year journalist for WNEP-TV 16, passed away surrounded by his three angels at Hospice of the Sacred of Heart, Dunmore.

He was a fighter over the many years he dealt with Parkinson's Disease and heart issues.

Born April 26, 1953, in Wilkes-Barre, he was a son of the late Robert and Irene (Palka) Reynolds Sr.

He was a member of St. Patrick's Church, White Haven.

Bob was a graduate of Brick Township High School, N.J., and studied at American Academy of Broadcasting.

Prior to his career at WNEP, he was employed for six years at radio stations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and was a reporter for WDAU (WYOU-TV).

Bob loved his family, especially getting lots of hugs from his grandchildren. Bob and Paula enjoyed cruising, especially during the better days of his illness. Bob was thrilled when he got permission to transmit from the "radio room" on one trip and always took his HAM radio with him whenever they traveled.

To all of his amateur radio friends, WB3DYE may now be a silent key but pay attention to the bands, you never know when you might hear him sending 73s.

Preceding him in death, in addition to his parents, was his son, David Reynolds.

Surviving are his loving wife of 27 years and "chief caregiver angel," Paula Deignan-Reynolds, by whom he is already greatly missed; son, Adam Reynolds and his wife, Kim; daughters who were angels to Bob and Paula during his care, Christina Reynolds and her fiance, Rick Rogers, and Melissa Reynolds-Appel and her husband, Joe; brothers, Marty and his wife, Jen, and Eddie and his wife, Jean; and of course those who were more than grandchildren ... they were his Best Buddies and Princesses, Brianna, Tyler (Tabby), Caroline, Shaylene, Jayden, Koa, Kingston, Syx, Gia and Edie; niece, Maddy; nephews, Max and Chase. Bob leaves behind many friends and his guardians, Pookiscammer and Mia (at home).

Paula would like to thank all the medical professionals who took great care of Bob during his illness, especially the compassionate staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore, both at home and as an inpatient.
