David E. McReynolds

David Eugene McReynolds, a resident of Willow Springs, passed away Tuesday, April 25, 2023, at the age of 75 after a brief illness. David was born on November 14, 1947, to Lewis McReynolds and Doris (Whited) McReynolds at the family home in Willow Springs.
David chose to follow in the footsteps of his three big brothers by joining the Navy on April 25, 1968. During his 21-year career, he traveled the United States and much of the world. Toward the end of his Navy career, he was stationed in Millington, TN and was an instructor to new recruits. During this time, he was introduced to the woman who would later become his wife, Marilyn Conger. On June 10, 1989, David and Marilyn were joined in marriage. This union created a family that included David's daughter, Celia Tinsley, and Marilyn's son, Jeff Conger. On June 30, 1992, David retired from the Navy and moved to Willow Springs to begin a new chapter in his life with Marilyn. David briefly worked for Brown Shoe Co. in Cabool until the factory closed. He then received specialized training before acquiring a job at Mercy St. Francis in Mountain View. David really enjoyed the many years he worked for the small hospital. After 16 years, David retired to spend more time with Marilyn and their beloved cat, Baby.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Lewis and Doris McReynolds; his wife, Marilyn McReynolds; his brothers, Lewis and Charles McReynolds; his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Erma and Ival Tooley; and his brother-in-law, Gary Wake.

He is further survived by four great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
