Dr. Steven Dwayne Reynolds
AUGUST 31, 1956 ~ JUNE 10, 2019 (AGE 62)
Steven Dwayne Reynolds, D.V.M.
Cats, Dogs, Birds, Bromeliads, Ferns, Cooking, Fishing, Family, Dining with Friends, Gig ‘Em Aggies, Music, and Politics … Dr. Reynolds had a fervor for them all and always a smile, always a laugh!
Steve died suddenly at his home in Rockport, Texas on June 10, 2019. He was employed by Dr. Charles Cruser, D.V.M, at the Rockport Veterinary Clinic. Steve was born in Baytown, TX on August 31, 1956.
Steve grew up with a love of taking care of animals, which led him to Texas A&M and veterinary medicine. After completion, he found his way to Austin and worked at several clinics where he served a large and dedicated client following for over 35 years.
Steve was a champion of many causes. He was a Bromeliad Society International Judge. He was a member of the Board of Directors for the Bromeliad Society International, President of the Cryptanthus Society, International and the Corpus Christi Bromeliad Society.
He was a Master Gardener and member of the Austin Garden Club. He was also a founding member of AIDS Services of Austin and served that community for many years. He was actively serving on the board of Cat Tales Rescue in Rockport, TX.
Steve’s passion for animals and plants was only exceeded by his love for his family and friends. He was most recently reminding us that it should be our priority (and it was his) to “Spend time with the people we love as we just never know how long we will
have them with us.“ This is a lesson that we are all reminded of much too often and now, as he departs, he reminds us to live life to the fullest, as he did, and leave with no regrets.
Steve was preceded in death, by his parents William and Alice Reynolds. He is survived by his brothers, Fred (Kathy) Gary, nephews and best friends, Joey, Jared, Jason, his beloved nieces Jessica, Casie, Cammie, great nieces and nephews, cherished dog Latte,
cats, Chakira and Juanez, and many friends across Texas and around the globe.
Steve had a zest for life and lived it to the fullest.
