Obituary for Howard "Stub" Reynolds

Howard “Stub” Hiram Reynolds was born to Thomas Clay and Martha (Petersen) Reynolds on May 7, 1921 on a farm in Pipestone County, near Verdi, Minnesota where he was raised and began his education. In the early 1930’s, he moved with his parents to a farm near Balaton, Minnesota and he continued attending school there. When he reached the ninth grade, he and his parents moved back to Verdi. At the age of 18, Stub and his brother moved to Weirsdale, Florida. In April 1944, he was united in marriage to Louise Costell. Then, on May 15, 1944, he entered the U.S. Army and served in Germany during World War II. After he was honorably discharged from the service in January, 1949 at Fort Riley, Kansas, he returned to Weirsdale where he worked as a trucker. In 1963, he moved back to Verdi and continued to drive truck. In 1967, he was united in marriage to Alta Johansen. Following their marriage, they lived in Verdi and Stub worked as a trucker until his retirement in 1992. Alta preceded him in death on December 26, 1992. After her death, Stub continued to live in Verdi. On November 27, 1993, he was united in marriage to Rosemary Weber. Following their marriage, they lived in Verdi until 2011 when they moved into Ridgeview Estates in Pipestone. Stub died at his home on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at the age of 98 years, seven months, and 22 days.
Stub was a member of the United Methodist Church in Verdi where he was baptized and confirmed. He was a current member of the Lake Benton American Legion and a past member of the Pipestone VFW and the Florida American Legion. He was extremely proud of all of his family members that followed his example to join the United States Military. Stub and Rosemary enjoyed spending the winter months in Florida every year. Howard loved hunting and fishing, playing cards and gardening, and he especially enjoyed watching his grandchildren in their various activities.
