Obituary: Reinbold, Thomas Mitchel

Age 62

REINBOLD, Thomas Mitchel With great sadness and many happy memories, we say goodbye to Thomas Mitchel Reinbold, 62, who passed peacefully at home on April 4, 2013. Tom was born on December 10, 1950 to Pat and Marianne Reinbold from Davenport, WA. He began his schooling in Davenport and finished at Ferris High School in Spokane. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1970, and ultimately built a very successful 30 year career as a building materials salesman. Tom’s charming personality and over-the-top sense of humor always left his customers with a smile and coming back for more. His charisma and playfulness carried over in to all aspects of his life where he was always the life of the party whose smile lit up every room he walked in to. Tom was a talented athlete and an enthusiastic sports fan. He never missed a Cougar Saturday, Seahawk Sunday or a Gonzaga basketball game. Fishing was his lifelong passion. He was tremendously talented and spent endless hours on the Snake River reeling in the perfect catch. Tom will be dearly missed by his son Tom (Carol) Reinbold and his devoted daughter Tierney (Fred) Houck, who spent countless hours by his side sharing in his humor, caring for him and helping him find comfort. He adored his grandchildren Carsten, Joel, Freddy and Emma. He is also survived by his brothers Rick (Debbie) Reinbold and Bryan (Siri) Reinbold; sisters Terri (Rod) Reichel, Julie Krupp and Marida (Brian) Brandewie; and numerous nieces and nephews. He loved a good joke and took great delight in sharing those jokes with everyone in his life. Tom faced a number of unfortunate health challenges in his final years which sadly caused his life to be cut short, but we are happy to know he is at peace now and is surely reeling in that perfect big catch. His Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, April 10, at Heritage Funeral Home in Spokane at 3:00pm.
