North Little Rock, Arkansas – The friends and family of Wilford “Bill” Reynolds are celebrating today. In North Little Rock, Mr. Reynolds has lived a long and productive life.
Prior to that, he was raised in Logan County on a farm close to the Magazine village.
Early in his twenties, Bill Reynolds joined the Army and served for two years, seeing action in the Battle of Okinawa during the Pacific campaign.
He went back to the family farm after being released from the Army. He spent 60 years in marriage with his wife.
Following that, he started working for the Chicopee Manufacturing Company, which produces cotton and rayon fabrics.
following the development of a lucrative used-goods sector.
He likes to play pool with his friends at the Senior Citizens Center. He also liked attending church and being around people. It gave him a pleasure to assist neighbors in whatever way he could.
The Patriot Guard, the Jeep Club, and other friends organized a march honoring Mr. Reynolds on Saturday morning.
He still goes for his daily stroll and uses his own car to get to some locations.
We sat down to listen to his account of his time as a young Private in the U.S. Army during the closing stages of World War II and the occupation of Japan by General Douglas MacArthur this afternoon.
