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.

In addition to Joanne, his wife of 66 years, Joe is survived by 3 sons: Marty, husband of Sue of Lititz, Bob of Lancaster, and Randy, husband of Patty of California; a daughter, Kimberly of Lancaster; 4 grandchildren: Jill Rineer, wife of Lance Turner; Jolyn Rineer, Giles Rineer, and Heather Weik; 4 great-grandchildren: Harrison, Joseph, Dejore, Kiara, and 2 sisters: Brenda, wife of Ronald Oettel of Lititz, and Elanore, wife of Clifford Aukamp of New Providence.

Preceding him in death were a brother, Robert, husband of Carol and 2 sisters, Dorothy and Linda Rineer.

What was once a whole heart is now half, but will be whole again when we are together in Heaven.

A Memorial Service will be held in DeBord Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., 141 E. Orange St., Lancaster, PA 17602 on Monday, December 28, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.  The family will greet friends at the funeral home on Monday from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service.  Private interment will be held at the convenience of the family.  In lieu of flowers, contributions in Joe’s name to Hospice and Community Care, 685 Good Drive, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA  17604-4125.

I will never forget growing up on Beaver Street in Lancaster with Marty, Bobby and Randy. Their father, Joe, was a great man and a great third baseman (all the more remarkable because of the ratty fielder’s glove he wore). God bless all the Rineers.

Can still remember the words of I SAID NO and we all knew not to ask again! I can still hear that unforgettable laugh after a good joke! Thinking of all of you and remembering all those good times! Thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Condolence from Kimberly Rineer on December 28th, 2015 4:54 pm

How about the 7 words that use to set us trembling. “Just wait til your father gets home.”
I mean that in the kindest way possible. And mom was a pushover, so we knew she meant business at that point.

Thank you to everyone who came to the service or left a message here. Dad would be very touched to see his family, friends, co-workers and baseball buddies stop by. Also, great to see so many of my brothers friends show up in support.

Kimberly

Joan,
I am so sad to hear of Joe’s passing. Whenever I came to your home, Joe always met me with a smile, even when I knew he was not feeling well. He always made me feel welcome in your home. May God bless you as you live on with the memories of the man you loved so deeply.
My prayers for you and your family are peace and comfort.

Your Friend
Katherine Arnold
