Ronald ‘Ron’ Reynolds of Green View, County Tipperary passed into the arms of the Lord on Tuesday, survived by his wife Melissa and his sons, Charlie, Peter and Howard. Ron was a secondary school teacher for thirty-two years whose passion for teaching and inspiring students extinguished eighteen months into the job. Worn down by lousy pay and a poor pension he pined for the days when he could have become a lecturer and academic researcher where his research skills could have contributed to the world of academia instead of spending his life telling everybody in the pub that teaching was easy, it was like riding a bicycle, except the bicycle is on fire, you are on fire, everything is on fire and you’re in Hell. Sadly missed by family and friends.

Requiem Mass Friday at 11 am.

Burial afterwards in Tipperary Cemetery.
