Robert James Reynolds

Baltimore, MD

Robert James “Bob” Reynolds, 68, of Bloxom, VA, passed away on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, in Baltimore, MD. Bob made his way into the world on February 23, 1955, in Washington, DC. He was the son of Audrey Mae Reynolds and the late Jimmy Edward Reynolds. Bob graduated from DuVal High School and joined the U.S. Navy. He served his country for five years as a Machinist Mate and earned the Navy Expedition Medal and the Sea Service Ribbon. It was after his time in the Navy that he met the love of his life, the young Virginia Louise “Ginny” Hannah. Ginny and Bob went to the same church, and she sang in the choir. He joined the choir, and as Ginny would find out years later, he only joined so that he could be closer to her. Whatever his plan may have been, it certainly seemed to work. Ginny Hannah became Ginny Reynolds on June 30, 1984, and the two enjoyed a lifetime of marriage and raising two girls until his passing. Always curious about how anything worked, he could fix just about anything he set his mind to. He even built his own computer once. He had a long and productive career as a Real Property Officer for Wallops Flight Facility - NASA. He had an “engineer brain” and a “dad joke” sense of humor. Most mornings for an entire year, his Facebook friends were treated to his joke of the day. Bob loved his family and enjoyed making the kids cringe with the corny jokes, which they secretly loved. He was a people-person and could make friends with a rock. Bob loved to laugh and make others laugh. Is there any better gift from God than to be able to bring a smile on another’s face? He was the textbook definition of a servant. He loved the Lord and his church (St. Thomas UMC where he was the current lay leader) and had a special place in his heart for Occohannock on the Bay, of which he served on the general board. Always willing to be involved with his community, Bob was a longtime member of American Legion Post 100 and the Eastern Shore Amateur Radio Club. The family joked that he had a different hobby every week, as he was a HAM radio operator, photographer, and even king of the grill on his fishing and camping expeditions. For many years, he spent his weekends DJing local dances and events. He made sure to be his girls’ personal DJ, often playing Little Feat, Neil Diamond, and Queen so the girls could dance in the living room. His wife, kids, and grandkids made his life complete. He doted on all of them and they loved him more than anything. He will be tremendously missed. He is survived by his loving wife, Virginia Louise Reynolds; mother, Audrey Mae Reynolds; children, Sarah Daley (Doug) of Brunswick, MD, and Ashley Reynolds of Springfield, VA; sister, Bonnie Lewis (Jeff) of Douglasville, GA; grandchildren, Dean Bixler, Audrey Daley, and Arthur Daley; four nieces; two nephews; and several extended family and friends. Bob was predeceased by his father, Jimmy Edward Reynolds, and brother, Alan Reynolds. A memorial service to honor the life of Bob Reynolds will be held Saturday, May 18, at 2 p.m., at St. Thomas UMC, with the Rev. Bob Talbott officiating. Memorial contributions in Bob’s name may be made to Occohannock on the Bay, 9403 Camp Lane, Belle Haven, VA 23306 (http://www.ootbay.org/), or St. Thomas United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 485, Parksley VA 23421. Memory tributes may be shared with the family at www.williamsfuneralhomes.com. Arrangements by the Williams-Parksley Funeral Home.

Baltimore, MD

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Donna Fern Nelson, 86, who died on February 18, 2024. Donna is preceded in death by her husband Benny, son Michael Tully, parents, Harry and Mary Leona Ridgeway, sisters Audrey Turner, Jacqueline Ouillette, and Hazel Webb, and brothers Melvin, Thomas, Harry, and Edmund Ridgeway. Donna is survived by daughters Laurie Buonaccorsi and husband William, Melissa Tackett and husband Nicholas, and son Neil Nelson. She was a devoted grandmother and is survived by her beloved grandchildren, Tiffany Houser and husband Derek Brown, Marissa McNall and husband Richard McNall, Lindsay MacDonald and husband Daniel MacDonald, Desirae Nelson and fiancé Tyler Hippen, Antonio Johnson, Nicholas Buonaccorsi, Maya Johnson, Jacob Buonaccorsi, Colson Tackett, Falynn Tackett, and Amanda Tully. In addition, Donna is survived by great grandchildren Darcy and Ronan McNall, Madeline and Harrison MacDonald, and Brody and Ayden Easterwood. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Donna will be remembered for the great love she held for her family; especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, whom she adored. Donna had a thirst for knowledge that she never stopped trying to quench and will be remembered always as the walking encyclopedia to whom all questions were directed. “Ask Donna (or mom, or grandmom, or granny)” we would say when confronted with a question or tried to recall a memory because she always knew the answer and remembered details and events that no one else could. Donna was also very skilled in the kitchen, something she learned from her dear mother. Every year during the holidays, our family looked forward to her delicious homemade sugar cookies, pies, and her mother’s special raisin cake recipe. Donna had a great passion for reading, loved playing cards with her siblings, challenging herself with difficult crossword puzzles, playing board games with her kids and grandkids (sometimes she even let them win), and attending to her beloved animals; especially her dogs Quinn and Topey. Despite her age, she easily transitioned to electronic games. Not only was she a wiz on her iPad but always surprised the kids by knowing all the secret moves and beating them at Mario Brothers. She always beat the odds, whether it was surviving breast cancer or a tough level on candy crush. Donna was strong, lighthearted, quick-witted, always had a snappy comeback, and kept her sense of humor until the end. She will be dearly missed and remain in our hearts forever. A graveside service will be held on Monday, February 26, at 11:30 am, Crownsville Veteran’s Cemetery, where Donna will be interred with her loving husband Benny.
