Giles “Joe” M. Rineer
Joe, beloved husband of Joanne B. Zinn Rineer, went home to be with the Lord on December 20, 2015 at Hospice and Community Care, Mt. Joy. He was the son of the late Wesley and Ella Sigman Rineer. Joe lived in Lancaster his entire life and worked as a superintendent for Wickersham Construction Co. for 42 years, heading multi-million dollar jobs after only completing an 8th grade education.
He loved the Lord, his wife and family, along with baseball and gospel music. He was also very fond of gardening at home, where deep red roses were his favorite.
