Warren “Rennie” Charles Reynolds

Warren “Rennie” Charles Reynolds, age 71, a resident of Bosque, passed away at home on Oct. 4, 2022, after a hard-fought battle against cancer.

He was born on May 8, 1951, in Albuquerque, to Warren F. and Lucille Arellano Reynolds. Warren’s family moved to Hobbs in 1967. After high school, he moved back to Albuquerque to attend UNM. At this time, he met his future wife, Melinda (Mindy) Padilla.

Warren and Melinda enjoyed 51 years together in a marriage full of love, humor and contentment. The couple bought land in Sabinal in 1972, and lived there until the present. He was a proud, loving, and supportive father to his two children, Caryn Alice Reynolds (Zach DiCicco), and Eric Warren (Rachel Lytle) Reynolds, and took delight in his grandson, Theo Warren.

Warren retired as an assistant manager for construction after 30 years with the phone company, after which he ran his own contracting cable company until a few months before his passing. Never one to relax, he also farmed and raised cattle.

Typical of his independent spirit, resourcefulness and ingenuity, he designed and built his home, doing all the construction with his own hands. Warren was also very much involved in the activities and interests of his children. He was a good neighbor and supported his community by volunteering for the Abeytas Fire Department and was instrumental in establishing a special zoning district in northern Socorro County.

Warren was preceded in death by his father, Warren; his brother, Craig Reynolds; and his brother-in-law, Kelly Voris.

He is survived by his loving wife, Melinda; mother, Luci; children and their spouses, grandson, siblings, Dena (Luke Faust), Richard Reynolds and Rebecca Voris; and many nieces and nephews, to whom he was a devoted son, brother and uncle.

The family is grateful for the many kindnesses provided by family, friends, neighbors and his medical team during his illness.

A casual celebration of life gathering will held in the spring of 2023. For details contact [email protected].
