Everett Wade Reynolds of Redmond, Ore., died at his home on June 19, 2012, at the age of 88.
Everett was born December 31, 1923, in Japton, Ark., to Benjamin and Nola (Parker) Reynolds. He attended University High School in Arkansas. Instead of attending his high school graduation, Everett was sworn in to the United States Army. He served with the Field Artillery Group in the Philippines during WWII. After he was discharged from the service, he and his family moved to Yakima, Wash., where he worked for Snap On Tool. In 1954, he married Deloris Leonard in Wenatchee, Wash. Shortly after, in 1956, Snap On transferred him to Redmond, Ore. He and his family settled there. This is when Everett became interested in fishing, hunting and playing golf. 
He became superintendent at Juniper Golf Course. He was a 13-time champion at the old Juniper course, and made 16 hole-in-ones at various courses. In 1985, he qualified for the US Open and in 1987, he was invited to play at the Canadian Open in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He was also a three-time champion and member of the Junior/Senior Golf Association. Everett was a very active member and volunteer for the Junior Golf Association and Oregon Golf Association. He received Volunteer Of The Year three times.
He was also a very active lifetime member in his local VFW. He served as a commander for two years and was a big hand in the rebuilding of the Redmond post after it burned. He was a member of the Bend Elks and later transferred to the Redmond Elks for 35 years, until they closed down.
Everett was instrumental in starting and working with the Redmond Booster Club. During this time, he and his wife, Deloris, bought Redmond Dairy Queen. Everett also enjoyed traveling across the United States with his wife in their fifth wheel. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with his kids and grandkids.
Everett is survived by his wife, Deloris Reynolds; two daughters, Lura Reynolds, Lisa and her husband, (his favorite son-in- law), Curt Petersen; two grandchildren, Tyral and his wife, Chelsea Petersen and Catlyn Petersen; one great-grandchild, Sophie Petersen; a brother, Keith (Phyllis) Reynolds; nine nieces and nephews; from a previous marriage, three grandchildren, Mary Rasmussen, Angie Knowels, and Billie Abers.

Prior to moving to Oregon, he and Avis and children had lived in the Los Angeles area.
Bob was a veteran of the US Navy, a Mason (Redmond Lodge #154), and also a member of the Order of Eastern Star with Avis (Redmond Chapter #109). Bob had retired as an advertising salesman for KBND, remembered by many for the singing advertisements he created. He was also known for his photography hobby and his many pictures of Smith Rock and the Oregon Cascade mountains, as well as for his woodworking and wood carving hobbies.
Bob was preceded in death by his older brother, Ken Kircher, also a resident of Central Oregon for nearly 40 years, and by his younger brother, Dr. James Kircher and sister, Marion Brooks. He is survived by daughter, Gayle, and son, Bobby, along with five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
He did not wish to have a memorial service. He and wife Avis will be interred at Terrebonne Pioneer Cemetery with an informal gathering of family and friends at a date yet to be determined in July.
