So sorry to hear that Dave is gone, but we know he is in a better place and his health is restored. So many of the Reynolds family are gone. They were a big part of my childhood memories. Blessings to you in the coming days.i know you have been through a lot, but you are a strong lady. Becky Beatty

On behalf of the Otterbein "O" Club Board of Directors please accept our deepest condolences and our appreciation for the generosity of the family to designate the "O" Club as one of the beneficiaries for memorial donations. Loren was a member of the student organization, Varsity "O" Club, while attending Otterbein College, and earned his letter playing football during the "Glory Days." He joined us in 2008 for a "Glory Days" reunion. After graduating from Otterbein in 1961 Loren became a supporting member of the "O" Club, the University's independent athletic boosters organization. As such, his donations contributed to many improvements for the athletic program at Otterbein, enhancing the experience to today's student-athletes. RIP

Our family has fond memories of "Dave". We enjoyed all the swim gatherings with him. He was always fun and a pleasure to be with. When we think of him a smile comes to our faces. Also, my niece worked for him in the insurance business and enjoyed Dave as her boss. "God bless You, Dave!"
