Thomas J. Reynolds, of Newton, MA for 62 years, formerly of Waltham, MA passed away peacefully on September 8, 2023 following a brief illness at the age of 93. He lived independently in his home until his passing. He served in the US Army during the Korean War. After a long career as an accounting executive in the retail industry, he finished his career in the office of the MA State Auditor. 

Beloved husband of the late Anastasia “Ann” (Gorman) Reynolds – the love of his life. Loving father of Anne Marie Delaney and her husband Leo of Roslindale, Thomas Reynolds of Natick, David Reynolds and Jaye Nashawaty of Braintree, and Margaret Lordan and her husband John of Arlington. Very proud grandfather of Kelly Lordan,  Erin Lordan,  Daniel Lordan  and his wife Sara, Jillian Reynolds, Nicole Reynolds, Catherine Delaney and her family, and Laurie Delaney.

Son of the late Thomas and Bridget (Hargadon) Reynolds. He was predeceased by his dear brother Joseph Reynolds and his wife Corrine. Brother-in-law of Ellen Stankevicius, Margaret Gorman, and Judith Gorman, and the late Frank Stankevicius, James Gorman, Daniel Gorman, and John Gorman. Beloved uncle of 13 nieces, nephews and their families. He leaves behind many cherished cousins - nearby and in Ireland - as well as countless friends. 

All knew Tom/Dad/Papa/Uncle Tom to be incredibly kind, loving, and generous. His favorite past-time was “anything with family and friends.” He was extremely active in his community, politics, and his church - an inspiration who enriched our lives. 

We have been blessed by his countless acts of kindness, and although we will miss him immeasurably, we are comforted by the tremendous faith he embraced with all his heart, lived by example and shared with us.
