Myron Reynolds

January 9, 1949 — October 9, 2023

Broken Bow, NE- Myron Lynn Reynolds age 74 of Broken Bow died Monday October 9, 2023, at the Arbor Care Home in Fullerton, NE.

 Myron Lynn Reynolds was born on January 9, 1949, at Sargent, NE to Verne and Helen (Hunt) Reynolds.  Early in Myron’s childhood he lived in the Cliff Table region west of Merna, later moving to the Ortello Valley and the Merna Valley.  Myron graduated from Anselmo-Merna High School in 1967.  With the Vietnam War taking place during his high school years Myron chose to enlist prior to graduation.  He attended basic training at the US Naval Training Center in California. He was sent to the Macon Delta River region of Vietnam. During his time in Vietnam, he was sprayed with “Agent Orange” and this product caused some major health problems later in his life.  He was honorably discharged from the United States Navy on November 14, 1969.  Myron was proud to be recognized for his service during patriotic programs and observations such as Veterans Day.

Upon his return from Vietnam, he started farming with his father.  Farming was his life.  He loved raising corn, soybeans, cattle, and hogs.  He farmed with his parents until 1991 and continued to farm till just 10 years ago.  Myron loved to drive around and look at the crops and livestock.  That gave him a lot of joy over the years.   After retirement he drove a truck for Overton Sand and Gravel and even helped his son Kent with their trucking business.  

In 1970, Myron met Beverly Petrick Allen and they were joined in marriage on August 29, 1970.  Through this marriage, Myron gained two sons, Scott (3 years old) and Todd (18 months old).  He adopted these little boys and always treated them like they were his very own.  Myron and Beverly had another son, Kent, in December of 1972.  They continued to raise their family around agriculture, living west of Merna from 1972 until 2000.  Moving to the new farm home east of Gates in 2000, this remained their forever home.  

Myron was blessed with five grandsons and two granddaughters.  He was always delighted when they stopped by to visit and enjoyed holiday gatherings with all present.  He particularly enjoyed their sporting events and tried to attend most of them.  

Myron and Bev enjoyed traveling.  Whether this was family ski trips to Colorado to visit cousins, or Amtrack train rides to Michigan to see other cousins.  A trip that none of the family will forget was when Myron and Bev took the whole family to Phoenix, AZ in 1995 to watch the Huskers stomp the Gators.  Myron and Bev had season tickets to the Huskers for 45 years.  Myron loved his Huskers but wasn’t afraid to cuss them out when deemed necessary.  They also enjoyed trips to time shares in Palm Desert, CA, and Hawaii.  This allowed them to get together with family members and “just have a good time telling stories and reminiscing with family and friends”!

Myron always enjoyed the Nebraska One Box Pheasant Hunt.  Myron and Bev have helped host many teams over the years.  He gained many dear friends through this event.  Being a Past Shooter Guide for the hunt, he was able to refresh those friendships every year.  

Being around people and having fun was always a priority for Myron. Whether you wanted to talk agriculture, Husker Football, grandkids … he was ready to stop and talk. Myron relished friends, both old and new.

Myron is survived by his wife Beverly of Gates: sons Scott (Elizabeth) Reynolds of Ansley, Todd (Lori) Reynolds of Broken Bow, and Kent Reynolds of Broken Bow, grandsons are Austin Reynolds, (fiancé Ellie) of Broken Bow, Dylan Reynolds (fiancé Gabi) of Fayetteville, AR, Grant Reynolds of Hays, KS, Cash Reynolds of Norfolk, and Nathan Reynolds of Broken Bow, granddaughters are Brittany Reynolds (Kylen Thompson) of Anselmo and Lauren Reynolds (Cole Ulmer) of Broken Bow. Also surviving is sister Karen (Jerry) Safranek of Merna, other family includes cousins, nieces, and nephews and he will be missed by a host of friends.
