Franklin Lee Reynolds Sr. was born on September 18, 1940 to Francis and Margarett Reynolds in Gladstone, Oregon. Frank grew up in Aloha with his 6 brothers and sisters. Where he attended high school. He joined the army in 1961 where he was stationed in Kentucky where he was able to finish his high school degree.

He moved back to Oregon after his time in the Army and started to work for the Oregonian as a custodian. His decision to move back was proven to be the right choice when he met his future wife and the love of his life, Bonnie. Both he and Bonnie had been previously married so when they met each other, they knew that what they had with each other was different and didn't want to waste time not being together so they married in Reno on April 7, 1973.

Frank was a family man and, between he and Bonnie, was blessed with a total of seven children. Frank's children, Rochelle Westphal and Franklin Lee Reynolds Jr. and Bonnie's children, Donald Landers Jr., Kathleen Arthur and Cheri Hamilton, from their previous marriages and later together having Kristina Bridges and James Reynolds. Frank couldn't have been happier; he'd do anything for them. He was a dedicated father and very influential in the lives of his children.

In 1976 Frank took a job with the Beaverton School District as a custodian until his retirement in 1997. Frank loved eagles and was a big Oregon Ducks fan. He loved his Double Mint gum which were his cigarettes! He enjoyed golfing with his sons and brothers. He also went fishing, hunting, took many trips to the coast He enjoyed playing video poker. At home Frank kept busy caring for the family's five acres and all of the animals they had throughout the years.

He is survived by his wife, Bonnie; children, Rochelle Westphal, Franklin Lee Reynolds, Jr., Donald Landers, Jr., Kathleen Arthur, Cheri Hamilton, Kristina Bridges, and James Reynolds; grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his beloved hound, Ginger.
