Randy Reynolds, age 63, passed away on the night of Saturday, January 29th, 2022.
Originally from Bolivar, MO he moved to Fairbanks, AK where he lived for more than 40 years and raised his family with his wife, Tina Baker. Randy was the owner of Mane Place Hair Salon for more than 20 years, professional hunting guide, owned a beauty school, and dabbled in construction and real estate. Randy's talents were too many to list, to name a few he was an excellent outdoorsman who lived an authentic Alaskan experience, a beloved father, husband, and friend to the many people in his life, a successful business owner, giver of philosophy lessons, and incredible entertainer who could spin a yarn with the best of them. He was a man who never seemed to be at a loss for words and could comfort those in need, provide endless laughter at parties, give advice and encourage those that may have lost their way, and stretch a 30 second phone call into 30 minutes.
For his many accomplishments, he took the most joy and pride from the family he was able to raise. His family was everything to him and he made sure at every opportunity that they knew how much he loved them. Randy loved camping trips into the wilderness of Alaska and beyond, exploring the Hawaiian Islands, and spending time with his family while trying to cheat them at cribbage. Growing up in Bolivar he loved playing sports, including basketball and football and carried that love with him to Fairbanks where he spent many active years in the community attending games, coaching recreational soccer, and teaching his kids how to play. During the hardest of times he was comforted by the love of family, listening to music, and many visits and phone calls from friends, especially good ole Mike Osbourne, his hunting partner and best friend. Thank you everyone for the outpouring of love and support. He was an incredible man who will be missed by many, all of his love, stories and spirit will live on in our hearts.
He is survived by the love of his life, his wife Tina Baker; mother, Ethel Mae Tennis; his father's wife, Jean Reynolds; sister, Brenda (Lacy) Reynolds; daughter, Natalie Hartley and her husband Ronny Hartley; son, Trevor Baker-Reynolds; son, Samuel Baker-Reynolds; 3 granddaughters, Alexis Hartley, Aiyanna Baker, Addilyn Hartley; his in-laws: John & Rachel Sears and their family; and a plethora of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents and his father, Al Reynolds.
Randy asked that no funeral service be held, instead his family will be holding a celebration of life with close friends and family at a later date. If desired, memorial contributions can be made to Disabled Veteran's Fund or your local food bank.
