He was always called "Sherman".
He was Moravian in faith and was a member of the Avalon Moravian Church where he was a Sunday School teacher.

He was a manager at the Avalon Mill in Avalon, N.C. in Rockingham County.

Several of the mills' overseers including Sherman Reynolds, Edgar Hege, and George and Emmett Suttenfield remained inside the mill trying everything they could to save it and anyone who had been left behind. Soon, fire had seized the mens escape route, but with aid of a fire ladder they were able to escape. Everyone got out alive.

Sherman was also on the Avalon Baseball Team.

After the Avalon Mill burned down, Sherman worked at Washington Mill in Mayodan, N.C.
