John “Jack” Leo Reynolds, 66, of Brighton, passed away peacefully at home on September 6, 2021. Jack was born on February 9, 1955, in Pittsfield to the late Francis and Winifred (McLaughlin) Reynolds.
He attended St. Charles School and Church where he was an altar server, and St. Joseph’s High School where he excelled as an all-star athlete. In 1973 he graduated from Red Hook High School in New York. Jack was a huge sports fan, loved baseball, particularly his New York Yankees. He was also a proficient billiards player.
