June 26, 1982 - August 28, 2021
Dana Reinhardt Jr., age 39, died Saturday, August 28, 2021 with his loving father and sisters at his side. Dana was born in Louisville, Ky, on June 26, 1982 to Susan and Dana Reinhardt. Dana was born a triplet and was his sisters’ biggest fan! He was always seen with a smile and could brighten anyone’s day with his contagious laugh. He was born with cerebral palsy and was dependent throughout his life on the care of others to meet his needs. Despite his cerebral palsy, Dana lived a full life of love, travel, adventure, sports (NBA games, baseball games, endless sporting events of his sisters), concerts, love and a lot of laughter. Dana loved country music, laughing uncontrollably, watching games shows, and enjoying ice cream. His family is forever grateful to all of those who made a positive impact in his life. He had a profound impact on his family and friends and helped everyone that crossed his path find joy in the little things. Dana’s laugh filled every one’s hearts with joy. He will be greatly missed but comfort is taken knowing he has now joined his mother in heaven. Dana is survived by his father, Dana Reinhardt (Shannan); grandfather, Edwin Schmidt; sisters Amanda Clark (Jeremy) and Erin Weigle (Kurt); step-sisters Emma and Mackenzie Neal; uncles Randy Reinhardt (Linda), Captain Gregory Reinhardt (Luly), Ray Spalding Smith (Martha); aunt Jane Moraja (Cecil); 5 nephews (Carter, Jackson, Cooper, Austin, Creighton); niece (Kennedy); and numerous cousins. Dana is proceeded in death by his mother, Susan Reinhardt, and his grandmothers, Betty Schmidt and Florence Smith. The family would like to especially thank all of the caregivers who gave Dana special care. Due to the COVID pandemic, arrangements will be privately held at Pearson’s Funeral home and Resthaven Memorial Park on Friday, September 3rd, 2021.
