A son, Craig Reichard of Craley, three grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded by four siblings, Samuel E. Reichard, Bonnie J. Mummert, Beverly R. Kendig and Robert Bacon.

Burial will be in Craley Cemetery at the convenience to the family. Rev. David D. Tietje, pastor of St. John's United Church of Christ in Red Lion will officiate.
If you could see me now, you wouldn't shed a tear. Thought you may not understand why I'm no longer here. Remember my spirit, that the real me. I'm still very much alive, oh, if you only could see! I've beheld our Father's face. I've touched my Savior's hand. The angels all rejoiced as I entered the Promised Land. Beyond the gates of pearl, I walk on golden streets. I've touched the walls of jasper, dipped my foot in the crystal sea. The beauty is beyond words, nothing can compare. I've seen your mansion; someday I will meet you there. Allow Jesus to be your guide, His word will show you the way. So, please don't cry! WE WILL MEET AGAIN SOMEDAY!"
