Mr. Reynolds passed away Monday, April 14, 2014. 

Mr. Reynolds was born July 23, 1950 in Woodbury, Tennessee, the son of the late George Fred Reynolds and Hattie Ruth Perry Reynolds.   Freddie attended Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, where he graduated with a degree in Engineering.  He was very talented in designing architecture, but chose a different path.  In 1984, Freddie opened Freddie’s Oyster Bar and Grill in Manchester, serving area residents and the surrounding communities with his famous hot wings, adult beverages and his always welcoming hospitality.  Known for having never met a stranger, he was always willing to help those in need and touched many lives, by being a friend.  Freddie was passionate about University of Tennessee sports, never missing the chance to cheer on the football and basketball teams.  This was apparent to all patrons who graced his establishment, by enjoying his collection of UT memorabilia.

Survivors include his loving wife of 21 years Suzanne “Susie” Reynolds of Manchester; two daughters, Whitney Jordan Reynolds and Cortney Ann Clark, both of Manchester; three sisters, Eva Adams of Manchester, Virginia Williams of Winchester, and Cherry Hill and Donnie Tawwater of Tullahoma; mother-in-law, Ruth Bellenfant of Shelbyville; two brothers-in-law, Keith Bellenfant and wife, Kit, of  Murfreesboro and Ken Bellenfant of Shelbyville; two nieces, Gina Jones of Manchester and Kelly Todd (Elbert “Pee Wee”) of Beechgrove; two great nephews, Keith Adams and Jacob Lowery, both of Manchester; and one great niece, Brandi Hershman of Manchester.

The family requests, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to be made to one’s favorite charity in Coffee County or to the Coffee County Animal Shelter.


Coffee County Funeral Chapel is honored to serve the family of Mr. Freddie Reynolds.
