REINHART, Kenneth Joseph

REINHART, Kenneth Joseph

Reinhart - Kenneth Joseph Died on May 6, 2016 from injuries sustained in a fall. He was 84 years old and resided in Severna Park, MD. Ken was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and graduated from Niagara University with a BA in Mathematics. He enjoyed playing basketball for Niagara, and took coursework in Latin, Greek and French. That coursework led to his assignment to Army Intelligence at Two Rock Ranch in CA, where Ken monitored Russian broadcasts. After an Honorable Discharge in 1956, Ken returned to Buffalo and was hired by Western-Electric, the manufacturing arm of AT&T. He spent his entire career with AT&T. Ken married the lovely Barbara Anne Meyers in September 1958. They raised six children: five boys and one girl. Promotions at Western-Electric moved Ken and his family to Andover, MA, Morristown, NJ, Winston-Salem, NC, back to Buffalo, NY, Baltimore, MD and Gilbert, SC. In retirement, Ken enjoyed performing close-up magic for his friends and family. He also continued his lifelong interest in Lionel trains, building a realistic city with bridges, tunnels and landscaping. Sharing a passion for gardening with Barbara, they landscaped their yard with terraces, fountain pools, stone walks and retaining walls. Ken and Barbara joked that they were the original Barbie and Ken doll couple, but their love and 58 years of marriage was genuine. Their family was their proudest accomplishment. Ken was preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Edna, and his brother Donald. Family and friends may visit on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 from 5-9 PM at BARRANCO & SONS, P.A.
