Ned F. Reiter

June 14, 1942 - June 27, 2016

Ned F. Reiter of Spring Branch, Texas, passed away peacefully at home on June 27, 2016, at the age of 74 years. He was born in Milwaukee on June 14, 1942, to Martin “Bud” Reiter and E. Mary Reiter (nee Forrest).

Ned was a proud graduate of Carroll College and remained in Waukesha for many years after graduation.

Ned enjoyed flying and kept his own plane at Crites Field in Waukesha until he discovered sailing. A 40-year member of South Shore Yacht Club in Bay View, he was actively involved in many committees and his loss will be felt by his many friends there. Before settling down in Spring Branch in 2013, Ned and Lorna spent 16-plus years traveling the United States in their RV. As members of the RV Escapees, they made many friends, visited Alaska and the lower 48, while still coming home to Wisconsin every summer.

He will be sadly missed and happily remembered by his loving wife of 21 years, Lorna of Spring Branch; daughter Katherine Reiter of Waukesha; grandson Samuel (Brianna) Kehoss of Fort Bragg, N.C.; Scott (Lisa) Daveley of Milwaukee; and Lynne (Gillett) Cole of St. Paul, Minn.

Ned was looking forward to meeting his first great-grandchild later this year.

Ned was preceded in death by both of his parents.

At Ned’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral service. A private family service is planned to scatter his ashes at a later date.
