Obituary for Victor Alfred Reineke

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, July 17, at 10:00 a.m., at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Brewster, MN, with Pastor David McDonald officiating.

Victor Alfred Reineke, age 82, of Brewster, MN, passed away on Saturday, March 28, 2020, at Crossroads Care Center in Worthington, MN.
Victor was born on March 13, 1938 to Francis and Anna (Fricke) Reineke. He was confirmed in his faith at Immanuel Lutheran Church. Vic graduated from Lakefield High School in 1956. After high school, he worked with his dad, farming, and also raised Mink. In April of 1960, he married Karen Lilleberg. They raised three boys together in Brewster, MN. He cared for his family and supported them by energetically working in many different lines of work. He delivered for Culligan, drove school bus, raised his own Mink, and then went to Armour’s in Worthington for 14 ½ years. After they closed, he started his own business, Town and Country Painting. He fearlessly climbed to the top of cupolas to make area farm buildings look new. In his spare time, he mowed many lawns for area widows, as well as several cemeteries.
Vic was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Brewster since 1964, where for many years he served in various capacities as Elder, Treasurer, Sunday school teacher, and handy man.
Vic enjoyed a good game of Cribbage or 500 and figured out who had what after the first hand was finished. He loved to spend time with his family and friends. He also made many memories on vacations with Karen to Hawaii, Alaska, New York, and Florida to name a few.
Vic is survived by his wife, Karen of Brewster, MN; three children, Dayle (Debby) of Valley View, TX, Daniel of St. Cloud, MN, and David (Jane Accola) of Antigo, WI; five grandchildren; many nieces and nephews, and his favorite cat, Miss Kitty. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers and sisters; two nephews, and two nieces.
A family graveside service was held on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery in Brewster, MN.
