   Benjamin M. Reynolds, 83, went to be with Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior, peacefully and surrounded by his loving family at St. Vincent Medical Center on Thursday, May 26, 2022.
   Ben was born on April 17, 1939, in Titusville to the late Merle and Mary Ellen Hall Reynolds. He married the love of his life, Ann E. Zerres on December 1, 1956, at Bradleytown United Methodist Church. She preceded him in death on August 6, 2009.
   Ben owned and operated several service stations until the early 1980s, after which he worked at Quaker State. He then worked for the Titusville Area School District before retiring in 2004 after making lifelong friends. He was a longtime member of the Titusville First United Methodist Church where he enjoyed being part of the Methodist Men Program before moving to Grand Valley where he joined the congregation at Enterprise United Methodist Church.
   In his younger years, Ben enjoyed bowling, camping, fishing trips to Canada, snowmobiling, gardening, and making cider, syrup, and hobby farming with his good friend, Guy Beers. Ben enjoyed reading his devotional, attending Bible study, going to physical therapy to exercise and spend time with some of his favorite people at NovaCare, mowing his lawn, cooking, watching Pirates baseball, and visiting with family and friends. He led by example in his living and his faith.
   He is survived by his daughters, Beth Dunning and husband Mark, of Enterprise and Becki Ernecoff and husband Richard of Centerville; four grandchildren: Alex Dunning and wife Katie of Utica, Caius Dunning and wife Robin Archer of Edinboro, Natalie Ernecoff of Pittsburgh, and Ryan Ernecoff of Centerville; and six great-grandchildren: Alicyn, Katelyn, and Carter Eastman, Emma and Hannah McDonald, and Brianna Dunning; a brother Harold Reynolds and wife Margaret of Hydetown; two sisters, Merleen Steele of Pleasant Hill, IA, and Mary Ellen Armstrong of Titusville; good friends Brad and Tracy Pearson of Pleasantville, and Randy and Gayle Beers of Grand Valley; and numerous nieces and nephews.
   In addition to his wife, he was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Roger.
