Before David Reynolds was the victim of a tragic shooting that resulted in his death, he was a husband, father and friend. And that's how the people who love him want him to be remembered.

"Every body loved him and no strangers, he was just a genuine guy," said Chris Thomas.

Chris Thomas was a friend and coworker of Reynolds and he says that over time, he became a part of his family.

Thomas stated, "...He would come over, barbecue, her girls would come over and play in the front yard, in the sprinkler, the slip n' slide. He and I coached a softball team together, I mean, you name it."

Reynolds' wife, Amanda, shared a message with KOAM. It said in part:

"He was loved by everyone. A very harder worker and perfect provider for his family. He was very funny and was so generous and thought of everyone and was willing to help anyone."

Thomas also says that Reynolds was a good-hearted person.

"He'd give you the last dollar in your pocket, shirt off his back, whatever he had. I mean like i said, regardless of what he was going through, he always made it a point to make sure you're okay," said Thomas.

It will likely be a long time before friends and family of Reynolds feel okay again, but Thomas hopes people remember his friend and his love for life.

"Fill them with love and just awesome, fun stories of him. He was just a carefree guy and I hope that they live life like that, in the moment, for each day," said Thomas.

In honor of David's love for life and others, the family has decided to donate his organs.

But this year, the blackberry bushes are not only thornless, they're lacking berries.
