Felipe de Jesus Reynoso, (66), of Laredo, Texas passed away May 30, 2024, with his daughter and son in law by his side.

Felipe was born to Francisco and Juanita (Juaregui) Reynoso, on December 21, 1957 in Los Angeles, California. From a young age he loved playing and watching sports. He developed an encyclopedic knowledge of sports history and trivia , particularly around the Los Angeles Dodgers.  After graduating from high school he turned down a full ride scholarship to the University of Southern California (USC) and instead opted to follow his older brother into military service enlisting in the U.S. Air Force. During his 21 years of service he was stationed in many international locations including Iceland, Korea, Saudi Arabia and Germany. He completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Finance and retired with a rank of Master Sergeant.. Following military retirement, Felipe worked for many U.S. contractors as a  Budget and Financial analyst. He was proud to be a Veteran and paid his respects to any retired or active service member he came across. You could find him in local shops sitting with another Veteran telling stories of where they had served and military life in the 80s and 90s. Another passion was road bike cycling, completing several century rides and riding just for fun.  When his nephew passed away at 16 from leukemia, Dad ran several marathons and century bike rides to raise thousands of dollars for Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. He spoke daily about riding again soon. For the past 3 years he resided in Laredo, Texas close to his daughter and three grandchildren who were his pride and joy. He became a published author of one book (Lala Surviving),  and was in the process of completing his second book. His daily pastime was going to his daughters’ home and enjoying a cigar on their back porch while watching his grandchildren play. “The best part of my day” he would say. In February of 2024 he gave his life to Christ at Grace Bible Church and was in small bible study groups to grow a closer relationship with the Lord.

Phil’s loving spirit will be carried on by his daughter, Rheanna Winters (Luca; their children, Stella Grace (9), Luca Aleksander(7), and Otto William(3)). Brothers: Francisco Reynoso (daughters: Amanda P. Werner, Camille Reynoso Mason, Emily V. Ford, Rachel M Reynoso, and Helena I Messner), Marco Antonio Reynoso (Kathryn Marie, daughters; Jorgetti Marie, Joeli Marie and Jinni-Lou Marie), Luis Arturo Reynoso (Connie,children: Luis Arturo Jr. and Amelia), Jesus Javier Reynoso, sisters: Victoria Genoveva Reynoso (sons; Adrian Kobayashi, Abel Kobayashi), Veronica Reynoso-Dazalla (Cheryl, daughters; Kelsey, and Kylie) and Viviana Villaneda (Frank, daughters: Erika, Paloma and Isabella) He is also survived by many family members across Southern California and Jalostotitlan, Jalisco, Mexico. He is preceded in death by his mother, Juanita Reynoso and father, Francisco Reynoso and nephew Luke Reynoso. The family would like to thank the entire Grace Bible Church community for their support during this time, and close family friend Amanda Condon.

My deepest condolences to the Reynoso Family. I heard of Phili passing from one of his St Aloysius Grammar school La Cour Family. I knew Philip from all boys Mt Carmel High school where his bothers also went. Even thou he was a grade ahead of me we shared the same date of birth 12/21/1957. We were on the same HS football team. He was on the Defense line and beleave me he held his own. I contacted some of our HS teammates. One of his friends Jose Delgado considered Phili his best friend from Gramar thru high school. Another friend knew him ecause both there moms were from the same small town in Mexico. I posted Phil's passing on Facebook and many HS friends gave there condolences. You can see Phili had deeps roots and many friends from Grammer thru High School friends. Out mascot was the Crusaders. Crusader sons are we!

I’m Roy Loredo from San Antonio and I knew Felipe or Phil as I called him from being roommates at Sembach Air Base Germany from 1977 thru 1980 along with Bob Mansolillo and Gerd Pokorra. My sincere condolences to his daughter Rheanna in El Paso Tx and family in LA. I’m shocked and saddened by this news. I will miss him dearly, RIP my friend.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tío Felipe when he traveled to Atlanta. I enjoyed the brief time we shared together over dinner. He had a wonderful laugh, great sense of humor, and a good story teller. Sending prayers of peace and love.

Felipe "Phil" and I met in Air Force basic training graduating together; 1975. Next, we were stationed together at Sheppard AFB, TX at finance tech school graduating together. We met up again in '77 when we were assigned together at Sembach Air Base, Germany for three years. Again, we both worked in in the Finance Office. Phil was a super athlete and played softball and other sports for a number of base teams. We and others played cards and traveled around together while in Germany. After Germany we were never stationed together again but we kept in touch on and off over the years. Just a few years ago Phil, Bob, Roy, and Paul - all Sembach finance - got together in San Antonio and talked about "old" times enjoying ourselves. Phil was passionate about his family, friends and the Dodgers. I'm lucky to have known him. He's greatly missed.

When Phil was stationed at March AFB, he would sometimes come up to Santa Ana for the weekend, for a visit. He had a brand new black VW bug, and he and I would go to the drive in theater for fun. We always watched silly movies, that made us laugh and laugh. I have fond memories of our silly & good times. Our beverage of choice was TJ Swann. Lol. Thanks primo for the fun times and for the great memories.

It is hard to believe you are gone dear Brother-in-law, our hearts are broken. I thank you for the wonderful memories I have of you and will cherish them. I hope you know how loved you were by so so many and how missed you will forever be. Brudda, I loved… …when Jorgetti shared with you that she was considering Vet school at UC Davis, she suddenly received a package in the mail with everything she needed to know for UC Davis. You did that. …how you were always bringing trinkets for your brother. …the beautiful lunch we shared up North when we were with some of my family too. …the respect you always showed my brother by calling him ‘Top’ because of his military rank. …the looks on your face when reacting to your Paloma’s wonderfully uninhibited personality. …how you hid the broken statue I had painted and you had just opened when one of the kids broke it. …the time Tony and I spent with you in Boston. …your father/daughter dance. …how you gave gifts to yourself from Santa. I especially loved how you were wholeheartedly Tony’s carñal, I will miss hearing your brother answer his phone and happily saying “CARÑAL”.
