It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our long time Rotarian and friend, Geoffrey Reinwald.  Whether you remember him as the whistleblower at Men Who Cook, the guy manning the bratwurst grill at Blues and BBQ, or the king of the parking lot at Touch A Truck and the Putnam County 4-H Fair, he always had a smile and a ‘Geoffrey’ joke.  He was always ready to help, whether it was ‘painting’ rooms (somehow painting everything except what needed to be painted) and pulling weeds (aka poison ivy).  He was a Rotarian at heart and was a living example of ‘Service Above Self’.
Geoffrey was a special and unique personality that had a lot to do with shaping the personality of what our club and our local community has become.  From sponsoring many, many members over the years to making our early morning meetings fun, he will truly be missed by his Rotary family and all that knew him.
Until we meet again Geoff.  Keep those jokes ready for us.
