Charles "Chuck" Reinhart Obituary
August 1, 1925 - October 25, 2016 Born in Los Angeles, California he passed this life surrounded by family. He was the beloved husband of Yolanda for 50 years and is survived by his three children, Charlie (Carol), John (Tricia), and Maria (Carol), and two grandchildren, Charlie Jr. and Andy. Chuck graduated from Glendale High School in 1943 and the University of Texas in 1946, where he studied engineering. He served as a U.S. Naval officer during the tail end of World War II and then returned to Los Angeles where he joined and eventually took over the family business, Reinie's Department Store. He retired in 1984. Chuck had a passion for trying to make a difference in the lives of others. Rotary International was an important vehicle for serving that passion and he assumed many leadership roles within it, including District Governor. Besides his work with Rotary, Chuck was an Angel Flight Pilot, a board member of Blessed Sacrament School and dedicated philanthropist. He made a difference by always extending a helping hand or a sympathetic ear. His ever present kind smile and generous spirit will be missed by all who knew him. A Funeral Mass is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 29th, at Blessed Sacrament Church, 6657 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Charles and Yolanda Reinhart Endowed Fund for the Rotary International Peace Centers online at Rotary.org
