Memories Timeline


  1. The David we met was a man of strength, a man of integrity, a man of humor. That’s the man we’ll remember. A fine man.

  2. so many memories playing at your house, my house, Oma & Opa’s – celebrating our parents’ birthday … and never forget all the great bar-b-q’s in your back yard and those incredible rabbits your Dad would fix. I am so sad to see you leave us.

  3. David it seems as if I have known you forever wow all the memories thank you for loving my sister and giving her such a happy life. You were definitely one of a kind. I must say out eating you is probably something I shouldn’t be proud of but I am!!! Until we meet again….

  4. David you were a very special person, always full of laughter and jokes. You will be greatly missed. Love, Jayme & Doug Murphy

  5. Worked with David on the SP Railroad. He was a good guy and a good friend. Don’t know that ever met a fella that could eat like him…….Family order of chicken or fish for lunch? Then possibly a few hot dogs to carry him through the shift. He will be missed. A good man.

  6. I also worked with David at the Southern Pacific, you could not have a better man to work with when trouble was around. Rest in Peace

  7. Donna,my heart goes out to you and the rest of David’s family. May God comfort you and give you peace. Marty Blume

  8. I knew David when we worked at NBPD many years ago. Good guy, always a smile on his face. Condolenses to all of his family.

  9. God Bless you and Donna and family. I know you have no pain and you are at peace. Thinking about you has brought back lots of memories of all of us older kids running around all over Oma and Opa’s farm. Good old days and times. Rest in peace cousin!

  10. Sad to hear about David and sorry we have been out of touch. He will be missed. We always had a lot of fun. Not many I can say that about as I can about David.

  11. so sorry to hear of the loss of David. your lifetime of happy memories with David will eventually make the grief a little easier to bare. my condolences for your family.

  12. My sincerest condolences to Donna and David’s extended family. We were close friends in grade school at SS Peter and Paul and later at New Braunfels High. In grade school I would spend the night occasionally and we would play war with real BB guns with David and his brothers. Those were innocent times yet the fondest of times. David was a loyal and trusted friend, like so many of us in this busy work a day world we would only see one another at an occasional high school reunion. I am sorry to say that it has been more than 15 yrs. since I attended. It saddens me that distance and time kept us apart over the years. I really just wanted to honor his memory and let you know how much I thought of him as person, like most of us he struggled with life’s up’s and downs. I just wanted you to know that God loves you even in your time of loss and grief and wanted me to share the memory and love He has for each of his children including David.

  13. My prayers to all of the Ruben and Celestine Reininger family. Rest in peace David and thanks for your service to our country.

  14. The Reiningers were our neighbors when our family first moved to America; David and his family were kind and generous boyhood friends. I hadn’t seen David since high school days, and was saddened to hear of of his passing, and his suffering from the lingering consequences of his military service in Vietnam. Warm blessings to his wife and siblings, with the sure knowledge that his love lives on.
