THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Roy W. Reinhardt
Visitation for Roy Wallace Reinhardt, 82, of Shawano was held at St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Town of Angelica on Wednesday, March 27 from 9 a.m. until time of the funeral service at 11 a.m.
Rev. Virgil Hanson officiated and entombment was in the Shrine of the Good Shepherd in Green Bay. Swedberg-Wendt Funeral Home in Bonduel assisted the family with arrangements. He passed away Saturday, March 23 at his home.
Born on May 4, 1930 in Oshkosh, he was the son of the late Walter and Edith (Miller) Reinhardt. He grew up in the Oshkosh area, where he helped his father work the family farm.
On July 19, 1952 he married Janet Meltz in Oshkosh and in 1956 the couple moved to the Pulaski area where they purchased their own farm and raised their family. During that time he was also the Assessor for the Towns of Angelica and Maple Grove for a total of 29 years.
When not working the farm, he was an avid reader and especially enjoyed agricultural topics. His biggest joy in life came from spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He also enjoyed traveling, trains and his daily Bible meditation. After retiring from farming, the couple moved to the Shawano area and called it home since 1995.
A member of the St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Town of Angelica, he previously served on the church council. He was also a member of the ASCS Committee of Shawano County and was a former member of the Shawano County Board.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Janet; four children, Charles (Debra) Reinhardt of Sun Prairie, Bonnie (fiance, Keith) Reinhardt of Green Bay, Keith (Debbie) Reinhardt of Gillett and Glenn (Cheryl) Reinhardt of New Berlin; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; a brother, Fredrick (Bernice) Reinhardt; a sister-in-law, Sue Reinhardt and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Carl.
