Joel Douglas Reuter
May 9, 1985 ~ July 5, 2013
Joel was born in Minneapolis, MN, and moved to Seattle in 2008 after graduating from college to begin a career in the software industry. Joel was well-loved by family, friends and co-workers, and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his parents, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, 2 nieces, 2 nephews, and his puppy Telex. Joel had a gentle spirit, and was known for his love of music and travel, his great sense of humor and wit, his intellect and his helpfulness. If you had a problem with your computer, Joel was your guy. He made friends easily and was very loyal. Joel had the gift to inspire a fierce kind of love and loyalty in his friends. Our family would like to express our thanks to his numerous friends and co-workers who went above and beyond to help Joel during his battle with cancer and mental illness. A private memorial service will be held.
Thank you, Joel, for teaching all of us so much about compassion, loyalty, and love. Memorials may be made to Greater Seattle NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), 802 NW 70th St. Seattle, WA 98117 or the
