Edward George Reynolds, Jr. “George”

Edward George Reynolds, Jr. “George,” 83, a resident of Pearland, TX, formerly of Houston, TX, passed away October 30, 2023, in Pearland, TX. He was born October 7, 1940, in McAllen, TX.

George was a proud graduate of McAllen High School and The University of Texas at Austin, and he cherished his life-long friends from both schools. He spent the majority of his career working in the insurance business and received more awards and industry recognitions than can be counted. Ever the chatty salesman, he enjoyed his daily conversations with colleagues, clients and friends.

George was a loyal Christian and took comfort being a member at Chapelwood United Methodist Church for over 40 years, and more recently, at Epiphany Lutheran Church in Pearland.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Bernice and Edward Reynolds and his brother, Richard “Dick” Francis Reynolds.

George leaves behind his wife: Leslie Waycott Reynolds; daughter: Melissa Reynolds Aurelio (Scott); step-daughters: Amanda Hayes (Don) and Jamie Holland (James); step-son: Weldon Hobbs (Kristin); grandchildren: Jake Aurelio, William and Nora Hayes, Addison Hobbs, Emmaleigh and JR. Holland.

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform everyone that we will not be able to have the planned Memorial Service for my sweet husband, George Reynolds as scheduled on Saturday, 11/18/23.  I have suffered a catastrophic injury this week that has left me immobile and unable to do the things necessary to prepare for such an important event.

George deserves to be celebrated as planned, so I will reschedule this important day in the coming months as the doctor allows of me. I want each and every one of you to have a blessed holiday season and hold your loved ones tight.

Warmest Regards,

Leslie Waycott Reynolds

  6. Terribly sad news to learn of this. George was highly respected in the financial services industry, and took on many significant leadership roles. He was instrumental in the financial success of many, and his influence was vast. He helped pave the roads – that many travel today. The Legacy he leaves will be felt for decades.

  7. George and I started selling insurance on the same day in the George Jones Agency in Houston Texas.

    He was always a real professional and competitor. His work has added many blessings to countless families over 53 years.

    Blessings to George and his family.
