Reynold was born on July 28, 1940 on a farm Northwest of Howells, in Cuming County, to Theodore and Eleanor (Kreikemeier) Vering. He attended high school until his Sophomore year when he was needed at home to help his father with the farm. He also held jobs at John Falty’s Feedyards, running the mobile feed mill for Sam Pekarek, and worked at the Howells Elevator.

In 1963, Reynold married Rose Marie Svoboda in Schuyler. To this union five children were born: Rhonda, Lori, Russ, Brad, and Kristyn. In August of 1976 Reynold opened Vering’s Feed Service where he created opportunity in times of challenges for his area customers.
Throughout his life, Reynold volunteered his time with the Howells Vol. Fire Dept. and EMS, served on the Howells Town Board, the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development Board, and the Hospital Board in Schuyler. He was inducted into the Pork Producers Hall of fame and was a devout member of S.S. Peter and Paul Catholic church, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus.

In his spare time Reynold loved working with his horses whether he was riding or driving them. He also loved family camping trips, traveling (especially to his children and grandchildren’s sporting events), and cheering on the Huskers. Reynold enjoyed meeting new people and was never afraid of a hard day’s work. What many will remember most about Reynold is his contagious smile.
