On Friday, August 7, 2020, David Weldon Reynolds, a true patriot and loving father, went to be with his Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 74. David died peacefully in his home in Humble, Texas, surrounded by his beloved wife, Susan, and family. David was born on January 14, 1946 to Dreeben and Hilda Reynolds of Beaumont, Texas. David was raised in Beaumont, Texas, and a graduate of Beaumont High School and Lamar University. David began his career of service in the United States Army (1965-1968), and then in the Beaumont Police Department (1968-1975). Longing to serve, David dedicated over two decades of service as a Special Agent for the United States Secret Service (1975-1999; 2007-2009). David served and protected six United States presidents, as well as innumerable diplomats and dignitaries visiting the United States. Upon retiring from service, David enjoyed spending his retirement learning the new trade of mortuary science as a Funeral Director at Rosewood Funeral Home in Houston, Texas until his ultimate retirement in 2009. David was a loving and remarkable husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He continuously entertained his family and friends with his wonderful stories and quick wit.
