Floyd Alan Rinehimer, 56, of Hanover Twp., was called home to God on Sunday, April 8, 2018, with his devoted wife and kids by his side.

Born (to be wild) in Berwick, he was the son of Floyd Rinehimer and Shirley Wenner Rinehimer. Floyd was a graduate of Berwick Area High School and Penn State University, where he earned a degree in biomedical engineering.

He was employed by the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center for 30 years as the Northeast United States Vista Applications IT supervisor. Additionally, he recently became a licensed realtor with Classic Properties. In his free time, Floyd loved working at his son's property, which he planned on turning into a wedding venue/winery.

One of Floyd's greatest joys in life was coaching his children through every sport imaginable. Floyd loved to stay active by hiking, bike riding and playing sports with his children. He was an avid outdoorsman and raised many animals such as turkeys, raccoons, quail, pheasants and his little wild kitty. Floyd enjoyed growing vegetables in his garden with his wife and could often be seen driving a tractor around his son's property. He loved making jokes and brought laughter and joy to everyone in his life. Floyd was also a die-hard Phillies fan, even through the Bowa years. Floyd did everything with his wife and children and took many vacations with them to Disney World and the beach. Most of all, Floyd enjoyed being the greatest dad of all time. Floyd continued to be a hero even in death by donating his organs to the Gift of Life.

Floyd was preceded in death by his grandparents, George and Edith Rinehimer and Theodore and Edna Wenner.

He is survived by his wife and soulmate, Joan Rinehimer; his children, Michael, Laura and Emily Rinehimer and future daughter-in-law, Shannon Zelinka; parents, Floyd and Shirley Rinehimer; sister, Shelly Pfromm and her husband, Brett Pfromm; and brothers, Kevin Rinehimer and his wife, Richell; and Gary Rinehimer and his wife, Randi.

The funeral will be held at 9:30 a.m. Thursday from S.J. Grontkowski Funeral Home, 530 W. Main St., Plymouth, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. Robert Bellarmine Parish, Hanover Twp.

Family and friends are invited to call from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Floyd's family in order to support his daughter's graduate school in pursuit of her dream of becoming a physician assistant, which Floyd was very proud of.
