Phillip was born October 7, 1952 in Texas, a son of Juan Reynero and Magdelena Perez and raised by his mom and dad, Magdelena and Alvaro Perez.
He is survived by his children, Wendy (Chad) Simmons, Melissa (Chad) Swanson and Adam Snyder; grandchildren, Jacob Reynero, Alan and Alexis Snow, Alyssa Minkler, Paiton Swanson, Elizabeth Sharp and Myiah Snyder; and a great-granddaughter, Mallory Koley. Also surviving are his “Dad” Alvaro Perez; sisters, Severa (Max) Fraga, Maria “Linda” Perez; brothers, Jose “Luis” (Eudelia “Yeya”) Aguilar, Alvaro “Al” (Karen) Perez II and Carlos (Vicki) Perez; and his bonus children, John and Julia. He had multiple extended family members.
He was preceded in death by his father Juan Reynero; his mother, Magdelena Perez; son, Philip Reynero Jr.; sisters, Martha Salaz, Angela Reyes; and brothers, Santiago, Manuel and Juan Aguilar.
Phillip was a mold maker for Thatcher Glass by profession, but had many other self-taught trades. He was very mechanically inclined and enjoyed challenging projects, “history” in general, taking trips to Laredo, crossword puzzles, cookouts, and most of all his family, friends and beer! His one regret in life is that he didn’t get to see the Pyramids (in Egypt).
Phillip’s heart was truly made of gold and if you were blessed enough to know him, you knew that.
