Michael Scott Reichold, 66, passed away peacefully on November 13, 2020. Born in Rochester, NY on February 12, 1954, he was a son of William Preston and Betty Marie Reichold.

Michael lived for his Creator and his family. He was a selfless and tender-hearted man with the ability to solve any problem. He was the pillar of his family. Michael was an accomplished Master Plumber; he used his skills not only to provide for his family, but to help rebuild areas devastated by natural disasters. A joyful and inventive cook, his specialties included macaroni salad and spaghetti. The love and outpouring of support his family has received upon his passing is a testament to Michael’s character and how his kind heart has touched so many.

“A dad is respected because he gives his children leadership. A dad is appreciated because he gives his children care. A dad is valued because he gives his children time. A dad is loved because he gives his children the one thing they treasure most – himself.” (Unknown)

Michael is survived by his wife, Karen; children, Dawn (Andrew), Robert, Courtney (Alexi), Brett, Austin, and Ryan; Grandchildren, Patience, Arianna, Alani, Caitlin, Kendra, Cara, Riley, Walter, and Mckenzie; Siblings, William and Beverly; Nephews, William, John Craig, John Robert, Daniel, and Richard; nieces, Krista and Lori.

A viewing will be held at Sylvan Abbey Funeral Home on Saturday, November 21, 2020 from 11:00a – 3:00p.

I miss you every minute. Nothing feels real. Like a nightmare I can't wake up from. My heart will never be the same.

Grandpa, I have been trying to find the right words to say for days now. I wasn't ready for this and I needed more time. I wanted you to be part of my celebration when I finally graduated nursing school and was accomplishing all my goals and dreams in life. Nursing school took 2 years of my life and the prerequisites took another 2 years. I wish I had some more years to celebrate my accomplishments and go do fun things together. But I don't. I miss you more than anyone could ever understand. I miss your voice, your smile, hearing you call me "bug" again, eating chick fib a or Mac and cheese with tuna while having some Fresca. I grew up with you there. You were an amazing Papa even when I wasn't always the greatest grand-daughter. I will never forget those weekends overnight at your house with sheet tents under the dining room table, the random dinner/lunch, the random times I went on jobs with you or the bigger moments like when you were there with me when my mom got married, my siblings were born and my high school graduation. I only wish you could have been here for my siblings and my cousins graduations too. But I will make sure we keep you part of those celebrations in the future. You will always be my Papa and no one will ever be able to fill your shoes, but we all definitely will try our best to do it together. Please look out for us and tell Sarah and all our other family in Heaven how much we love and miss you all. We'll take the land life from here and someday I will see you again. I love you Grandpa! RIP.

Dear my best friend,
I dont even know where to begin. I know that you will always be watching me. I will always miss how goofy you always were and when we would go to the store together. One thing that I always remember you telling me was "I want you tell your kids that my grandpa loved me to death, but he was always a pain in the ass." I'll never forget when we would go to the store you would tell me to get whatever i wanted. And my forever favorite 2 memorys are when you took me to that concert and christmas season. I always loved being around you and i loved the talks we had. I wish i could have said goodbye and i wish i could have hugged you one more time.I know that you always loved me. You will always be in my memory and heart and everyone will cherish your life for what you did for everyone.
Love,
George

I will always remember the day you walked into Flanigan Furniture and my life changed. We had 2 beautiful children during our marriage and shared many good times and some not so good. Michael you were always there for everyone even to the end. You never gave up or gave in. Thank you for always taking care of Mom just like you promised. Even through it all we were friends and I knew I could call you and you would call me. We love you and will miss you. You are forever in our hearts. Rest in peace.

Mike was a friend and fellow brother in Christ ever since my wife and I met him in 2008. Mike was a straight shooter. You never needed to worry about where Mike stood on any issue. He was the Papa Bear to his family all of whom he loved fiercely. He never met a stranger. He always went out of his way to help any one in need.
Mike was a delightful character who enjoyed life, really enjoyed Nascar, and followed God's lead with his whole heart.
To Mike's family, I would offer this: During this difficult time, remember that Mike is in God's loving arms, he has no pain or suffering, so his advise would probably be to keep your sorrow to a minimum and your eyes on Jesus, so he can meet you in Heaven!

Gosh where do I even start. You have always been there for everyone no matter what happens in life, no matter what has happened between you in those people you were always there. You always held your head up high and kept your crown straight even in the darkest times. I always knew that if I needed help you would be there even if it was just advice or if I needed some money for school. You never gave up on me either you always told me to do my best. One of my favorite things you would always say when saying goodbye was “I love you so much Caitlin Meckenzie, always remember that.” That saying has been on repeat in my head since you have been gone and it will forever play in my head. I still remember the smell of your cologne when you hugged me, and the tight big hugs you always gave. I miss you a lot I don’t remember the last time I talked to you but we both knew we loved each other. I’ll make sure to tell my kids what a great papa you were and how amazing you would have been as a great grandpa. I wish you could have watched me walk across that stage when I graduated but I know you’ll be with me in spirit. I wish you could have walked me down that aisle with my dad marrying the love of my life but I know you are watching and you always will. You are forever in my mind papa.
Love, Fred
