Richard Rienold Sept 8 1948- Dec 4 2012
Richard Reinold was a great man. I do not know much of his early life since I am his daughter but what I do know is great. My Dad was the oldest of four. He went into the Army at when he was 18 and trained for a war that did not happen during his time in. He worked at the Post Office for almost 40 years. He retired about six years ago. Sadly he did not get to enjoy a lot of retirement time. When he met my Mom she already had a daughter from a previous marriage. My father became her father since hers was never around. And when she had a child of her own and could not longer care for him my Dad and my Mom took him in. Since my Mom was still working my Dad did most of the things with my Nephew who is now 11. He got him ready for school did his homework took him to events and taught him many things. It is unfair that their relationship was cut short. He was like a father to my nephew. I will not say my Dad was perfect because I know that no one is, but when it come to that he was pretty close. He was very patient and always listened to me. I felt closer to him than my Mom. I felt it was easier to tell him things. We spent a lot of time together when I was growing up. My Mom worked at night time job so me and my Dad did everything together. He taught me how to swim and how to drive. And when grief hit our family he held be so close and told me it would be ok, it was just the thing I needed. Everyone that knew him thought only good things. It is so unfair that such a great person will miss so much of life. I can only hope he knows how much it meant to everyone and he is terribly missed.
