Not sure what to say?

Rest in peace, Dr. Reinig.

I had the honor of having Ron for several classes and of being a work study student for the history dept in the mid 1970's. I also had the pleasure of working with him as part of the Erie Democratic Party in the past several years. He was a great teacher and man. He will be missed .

I had the pleasure of having Dr. Reinig for a class and working with him on community service projects. He was a gifted and wonderful human being. Our sympathies go out to his family.

I was a Student of Ron's back in '72. Ron was one of the absolute best Profs that I had at Edinboro. I thought he was fantastic! I have thought of him often over the years. We read "The Greening of America" and "Future Shock" and I promised myself that I would re-read them in 25 years to see how they stood up after 25 years (and I did). I am so sorry to learn of your loss, frankly, you lost a terrific man & Teacher. I'm very sorry.

Barbara and family:
I was so sorry to hear that Ron passed away. I have so many fond memories of him from when I was an undergraduate at Edinboro University to later years when Mark was a professor at EUP and we had many occasions to be together. I even remember your wedding. How the time flies by. I know Ron lived a full life and you greatly contributed to his "settling down." Again, my sympathies to you and your family.

Dr. Reinig had the profoundest effect on me before he was "Dr." He was a graduate student at Syracuse U. going for his masters degree, teaching an American History class at SUNY Cortland. I was in his class spring semester, 1967, and he was one of the two most influential teachers I ever had in all my undergrad and grad studies! He not only had a passion for the subject, which he conveyed to me, but also a rigor of thought, and a way of showing and leading good thinking and...

I'm so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your cherished memories of Ronald and may the God who gives peace be with you all.
Romans 15:33

Ron was one of "us," a community of scholars for social justice. We mourn our loss.

Honor to Ron for his being and for the life he lived.
My thoughts and heart go to Barb and his family during this time of loss.
