John W.

Dr. John W. Reynolds, age 65, passed away Tuesday, February 7th, 2017. He was the loving husband of Jeanne (Broadway), proud father of Bailey (Josh) and Alex (Emily) Reynolds. Also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

John was an avid animal lover and “father” to 8 dogs during his 43 years of marriage to Jeanne. He spent 29 years of his 30 year career as a veterinarian at Cudahy Veterinary Clinic and inspired his daughter to become a veterinarian as well. He loved golfing, gardening, and science fiction.

John’s spirits remained high during a 3 year struggle with multiple illnesses and will forever be an inspiration for positivity in life.

A memorial visitation will be held Saturday February 11th from 10:00am- 11:30am at the FUNERAL HOME. A memorial service will follow at 11:30am.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are appreciated.

My very deepest sympathy to you Jeanne, and to your family as well. I am so sorry that I procrastinated about calling John, knowing that he was ill.
John and I lived only a few blocks from each other in Milwaukee. We were friends from kindergarten at 35th St. School, Edison Jr High and graduated together from Custer High School in 1969. All through Junior high school we walked together to school. Most afternoons we would stop at his house and play our favorite board game-Stratego. John joined our family for several summer vacations in the Eagle River area. We shared a love of animals too. When it came time for college we both decided to attend Lakeland College, near Plymouth. We were roommates for the first year. We each met our wives at Lakeland as well. John continued at Lakeland but I transfered to UWM for one more year. Sadly, we lost contact after that and despite efforts to reconnect, we never saw each other again. John has always been in my thoughts and was major part of my childhood and teenage memories. My prayers are now with his family. He will be missed so much.

Jeanne, Bailey and Alex… everyone in my family is keeping you in our thoughts and hearts. John was our vet too… and he really had a way of quiet support when I had to make tough decisions about my dogs. I also remember his wry sense of humor when a group of us played Sheepshead for a time. I feel very fortunate to have known him. It is my prayer that you have the love of many to lift you up during this time of loss.

I worked with John for 15 years and I’ll never forget how he made me feel comfortable from my first day there. He made me laugh every single day and I learned so much from him. I’ll miss him terribly.

So sorry and sad for your loss. Always looked forward to seeing Dr Reynolds when I took my cats in. Besides being a good Vet, he had a good sense of humor and put the humans at ease as well as the animals. All my prayers for his family and friends.
