Milann Clyde Reynolds, born as a set of fraternal twins to Clyde and Dawn Reynolds on May 2, 1955, died doing what he loved on December 21, 2017. He was born and raised in Crescent City and left the area when he joined the Navy in 1974. He worked on historical renovations in the Santa Cruz area after his discharge until he decided to come home to help his father. He retired from Pelican Bay State Prison and had been enjoying a life of music and travel for the last several years.
Dad had a lifelong passion for blues, jazz and classic rock. He was a truly accomplished musician and guitarist who was highly thought of. He also worked as a studio musician at Hun Sounds in San Rafael and worked as backup vocals and musician on tour. He played in many bands throughout his lifetime and has enjoyed a steady schedule at local venues doing what he loved. To know him was to hear his soul wrapped in riffs. His music will be missed.
Dad loved diving. Nothing made him happier than warm waters and cold beer. Milann loved to travel the world to immerse himself in the wonder that is the ocean. He had a group of friends with a similar passion, and Mexico was a favorite of theirs. To know him was to see the oceans in his eyes. His pictures will be missed.
Dad loved his family and friends. He even gave up an annual dive trip to hold my hand during the delivery of his first granddaughter. He was there for pumpkin carving, Easter egg dyeing, band concerts, school plays and Christmas dinner. Milann had many friends near and far that will miss him dearly. He had a turbulent relationship with loved ones and was often referred to as emotionally uncommunicative, but with a heart of gold. He was who he was and made no apology, but you loved him anyway. To know him was to see the love for his family in his smirk. His smile will be missed.
Milann appreciated fast cars, especially Porsches. He even travelled as far as Germany to race. Lately he had really enjoyed getting back into motorcycles. Milann had a group of close friends to ride with every chance he got. He loved his weekend rides in the mountains with a daredevil attitude and a love of distant vistas. To know him was to hear a blatant disregard for the rules in his laugh. His joy for life will be missed.
Milann was a Mason past Master and a Shriner. This is a statement of who he was and what he believed in.
Milann was preceded in death by his mother and father and older brother Ted Hunt. He precedes his twin sister, M’Liss Lewis, and her husband, Ken, their children and grandchild. He precedes his brother Terry Hunt and family. He leaves me, his daughter, Tanya Morse, my husband, Robert, and our children: Nathan, Kira, Ariana and Chance Morse, plus his great-grandson, Quentin Morse, of Crescent City. Milann leaves his son Jeremy Goosen, his wife, Vanessa, and their son Mason of Bonney Lake, Washington. Milann also leaves his son Page Olson of Pahoa, Hawaii. He leaves his ex-wife, Dusanka RoseMarie Reynold of Crescent City. He also preceded many other family members near and as far flung as Germany. He died too soon doing something he loved. He will be missed.
Milann will be interred in the family plot next to his parents at Mountain View in Lakewood, Washington on January 15, 2018. His celebration of life will be held at the Masonic Lodge in Crescent City on Sunday the 21st of January, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. For more information please private message Tanya Zigler-Morse on Facebook or contact the family.
