David Reynolds, a metals manufacturing executive who helped bring aluminum foil and aluminum beverage cans into the American kitchen, died on Monday in Richmond, Va. He was 96.
His death was confirmed by his daughter Margaret Mackell.
Reynolds was the last member of his family to lead Reynolds Metals, which was founded in 1919 by his father, Richard S. Reynolds Sr., and grew to become the nation’s second-largest aluminum manufacturer behind Alcoa. Reynolds was sold to Alcoa in 2000, five years after Reynolds stepped down from its board.
