Jack C. Reukauf, stockbroker, WWII Navy veteran

Sept. 17, 1922 – Sept. 14, 2015

Jack C. Reukauf, a stockbroker and senior partner at Trubee Collins and Co., died Monday in his home in Elma after a long illness. He was 92.

Born in Buffalo, he was a graduate of Fosdick-Masten Park High School and served in the Navy during World War II as a gunner’s mate second class. He attended business courses at the University of Buffalo.

Mr. Reukauf joined Trubee Collins when it started in 1941 and had a seven-decade career with the local brokerage, retiring in 2012.

He was a founding member of Nativity Lutheran Church in East Aurora and was a member of the church council.

He also was a past president of the Bond Club of Buffalo and a member of the Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons, the Rotary Club of Buffalo and the Millgrove Volunteer Fire Department. He was a trustee of the Wildermuth Memorial Foundation. Because he had a rare AB positive blood type, he was an on-call blood donor for 25 years.

Survivors include his wife of 68 years, the former Marjorie Wiegand; a daughter, Karen Sharf; two sons, Stephen and William; two sisters, Miriam McGlynn and Phyllis Weber; five grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday in Nativity Lutheran Church, 970 E. Main St., East Aurora.
