Michael Rindfleisch Obituary
Rindfleisch, Michael
1951 - 2018
Just before sunrise on July 8th, Michael Lyle Rindfleisch, 66, slipped quietly into God's grace. Michael was born in Bemidji, Minnesota on July 26, 1951. In 1964, the family moved to Columbus and settled in Clintonville. Michael was the oldest of six brothers and sisters and attended Whetstone and Bishop Watterson high schools. After graduation he worked for Gold Circle and Union Cemetery. Because he loved both horse and harness racing, his favorite job was working as a money manager for Beulah Park. Michael enjoyed watching and talking Ohio State and Cleveland Browns football, but his true passion was harness racing. He always had a chair along the fence for The Little Brown Jug during Delaware County Fair week. Outside of sports and family, music was an important influence in Michael's life, beginning with the fun and colorful 1960's "Battle of the Bands" events in Whetstone Park. Mike also enjoyed listening to Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and David Sanborn. Michael is survived by and will be deeply missed by his loving son, Nathan; parents, Dr. Nolan and Rita Rindfleisch; former wife and close friend, Cindy Rindfleisch; siblings, Roberta (James) Roesch, Gail (Doug) Jenkins, Noel Rindfleisch, Leah (Jessie) Turner and Sarah (Peter) Ellsworth; nieces, Danielle, Molly, Abigail, Alexis and Emily; nephews, Shawne, Joseph and Ethan; along with lifelong friends from North Columbus. Michael was preceded in death by infant brother John Stephen, his grandparents Ann and Lester Savard, and Adolph and Lillian Rindfleisch.
