William H. Reinbott, 90, of Southern Pines, formerly Little Egg Harbor, N.J., passed peacefully September 13, 2021.
Bill lived in New Jersey most of his life.
After high school he joined the U.S. Navy where he served in the Korean War as a gunner’s mate. After returning home from the Navy, he married and worked as a self-employed drywall contractor for many years and then as a machinist at Hudson Tool and Die Company. His passions were his faith and family, whom he spent much time with at home and on beach vacations. He also loved saltwater fishing; eating pasta, Italian hotdogs, and sweets; traveling the world; dancing at weddings; swimming; pets; and rooting for the N.Y. Yankees and Giants. Bill was active in church as an usher, a Eucharistic minister and a fourth-degree Knight. His laughter, hugs, and kisses will be missed.
Bill is survived by his wife Grace (Nitti), of 64 wonderful years, children Bill (Barbara), Denise, Richard (Joan), and Keith (Domenica); 5 granddaughters (Carrie [Will], Meredith [Kevin], Jackie, Marie, and Brianna); and 4 great-grandchildren, Jonah, Bobby and Louisa who kept him young at heart, and baby Temperance, arriving any day. He is also survived by his brother John Reinbott and many nieces and nephews.
The funeral mass will be celebrated at 2 pm on Thursday, September 23 at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in Southern Pines and will be streamed live at www.stanthonyparish.net. Entombment will follow at Pinelawn Memorial Park Mausoleum.
