Dr. Ronald P. Rheinlander, 76, of Evansville, passed away Saturday, May 16, 2020 at his home.

Ron was born January 13, 1944 in Evansville to the late Cornelius and Harriett (Holtsclaw) Rheinlander.

He was a lifetime member of the Westside Nut Club, Knights of Columbus, MESOGP, and VFW Post #1114. He loved golf and snow sports and was a founding member of the Tri-State Ski Club. Ron was a devoted family man who enjoyed supporting his sons however needed including coaching, theater, music, or Scouting. His generous heart and distinctive laugh will be missed, but his teaching contributions will live on thru all of those lucky enough to have known him.

Surviving Ron are his wife Crickett Rheinlander; four sons, Tom (Becky) Williams of Dallas, TX, Brad (Jennifer) Rheinlander, Scott (Laura) Rheinlander and Robb Rheinlander, all of Indianapolis; a brother, Bob (Linda) Rheinlander of Evansville and grandchildren, Jayden, Samuel and Gabriel.

Sending nothing but love to my family back home in Indiana. Uncle Ron was a great man and did so much for my brother Billy and I growing up. I will never forget his smile, his generosity, and his kind heart. Thinking of you always, Aunt Crickett.

Uncle Ron ... MollyRose and I stayed up and shared remembered stories back and forth the other night. There are many. He was this amazing little man who was so much bigger than the body he inhabited.
I'm fairly certain he still has scars from tiny teeth biting his thumbs ... I know I bit him once hard enough to draw blood ... He was never cross about it though. He always said, "Is it pain or is it pressure?" To this day when anything hurts physically or emotionally I can almost hear his voice in my head as I ask that question. Rosey (MollyRose) would get so frustrated when I asked it, but we laughed as we remembered it. It was truly an honour to be his niece.

He will be missed terribly and ever remembered fondly in our home.
