Obituary

HARRY L. REITER 1939 - 2021    

 

He took the best of himself - his sense of humor,

his love of life, his ability to do for others and injected

it into those around him.  That part of him will

never die and can never be taken away.   

 

Thank you for sharing this day with us as we

celebrate the life of Harry Reiter.

He has now joined his Mother and Father, Emily and Harry,

as well as his beloved older sister, Joan Kohn.

He was the cherished husband of 53 years of Peggy, the

enormously proud father of Drew (Rachael) and the over

the moon Poppy of Haven Lea Reiter.
