Vince Reynolds

Vince (Vincer) has been missing for the last 9 days and his family, friends, and the police have been searching for him. Tonight they found Vince's truck at the bottom of a pond right by his apartment. No one knows what happened and I am sure that they never will for sure.

If you ever had the chance to meet him then you know what a good guy he was. The type of guy that would give the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was a funny bastard too. Just wind him up and watch him go, he would keep you laughing all night, well at least until the beer ran out. lol.

For me, Vince was more than just a riding buddy, he was a brother to me and will be sorely missed.

I'll miss the hell out of Vince. Always had a great time when he was around.

Wish he could have been able to ride with us more than he did.

RIP my friend.

Unfortunately he also was a victim of the indiscriminate banning in the past and chose not to return.

Wow. Another XSer down.

Prayers of peace for his family after such a period of turmoil.

I'll have to look through the pics I have on my home computer. The only one I can find of Vince right now is one I can't post here due to family site.

Terrible this happened, but glad there can be some closure for the family and friends with him missing so long. Vince would always come up with some saying that would crack everyone up..

He never was the same guy after his divorce and didn't ride with us much after that, but he was the type of guy that you could call at 3am on any day of the week if you were in trouble, and he'd be there. The world needs more guys like that, not less, and he'll be missed.

I just got off the phone with Harry, and he told me this has happened.

Can't believe it... Sure hate to hear this.

I liked Vince. Like Harry said, he could crack you up. He was a lotta fun on trips.

I'll sure miss him.

Wow... This has been a tough month.

My condolences.
RIP, Vincer.
