John D. Reyns

Born: June 18, 1954

Died: October 24, 2019

John D. Reyns of Riverside, Illinois passed away peacefully October 24th, 2019.

Born June 18th, 1954 on Chicago's south side to Ann and Paul Reyns, John was raised in Riverside where he attended Riverside-Brookfield High School. After graduating from Bradley University, John worked at Kemper before rejoining his father and working for Reyns Transformer in Brookfield, where he would serve as President for over 25 years.

In 1985, he welcomed his only child, John Paul, into the world. Between his love for music and the water, his life was filled with joy. A certified SCUBA diver and sailor, as well as a habitual swimmer, the only time John was happier than he was in the water was when he was listening to the Grateful Dead or Jimmy Buffett.

He is survived by his son and granddaughter Charlotte Ann Reyns.

A Celebration of Life will be held from 2pm - 5pm on November 8th at Irish Times in Brookfield.

I knew John since 1972 when we met in college. We joined a fraternity together and shared a lot of good times and memories. He was a kind, quiet guy who always surprised us with his many talents and abilities as he was not one to boast. My sincere condolences to his family, rest in peace John.

I waited every morning with John for the YMCA to open. He always had a kind word to say. He will be missed and I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to his family.
