Ronnie E. Reisinger, 74, passed away on February 28, 2019. He was born in Champaign County, Ohio on August 8, 1944 to the late Howard and Margaret (Harris) Reisinger. He was the loving husband of Teresita (Delarosa) Reisinger. He is survived by his wife of Rogers; son, Lonnie (his wife Shelley) and their children, Austin and Emmie of Springdale; siblings, Linda Merricks, Wilbur Reisinger, Leroy Reisinger, Deanie Ballew, Gary Reisinger, Polly Hill all of Ohio and Christina Wiseman of Florida.

Ron was a devoted husband to his wife of 52 years. Together with Teresita (Tessie), they moved around the globe serving our country and the US Army as a Civil Servant in Korea, Germany, Texas, Georgia, and Michigan. His job provided him an opportunity to see much of the world from the Middle East, Far East, and much of Europe. He finally retired as a Logistics Assistance Representative (Civil Servant) for the Tank Armament and Automotive Command (TAACOM); he was a specialist in maintaining and upgrading all different types of military vehicles from tanks to wheeled vehicles. Ron had previously retired from the US Army, where he worked on military vehicles. He was also Vietnam Veteran from ’66-’67, where he was a member of the 584th Engineering Company, the “Wooly Bullies”. He moved to Arkansas to be near his son, and family, in the last few years of his life. He relished his time with his grandchildren, listening to their stores about Boy Scouts, school activities, and basketball games. Ron was a constant tinkerer with mechanical things, always having some type of “project” to work on; keeping his mind occupied and hands busy whether it was with an edger that someone had left for the trash or a lawnmower that the neighbor was having trouble with. He was also constantly on the quest for a 2nd go-kart project to fix up for the two grandchildren, his Buddy and Princess! Ron will be dearly missed by his wife, son and family, his brother and sisters, and brother and sister in-laws who called him “Old Man” even though he was only a few years older than them. He was a decent and honorable Christian man, who loved his family, and took his big brother responsibilities seriously. Rest in Peace Ron, we will see you again in Heaven, one day!

Ronnie and Tessie were a huge part of our family. Ronnie will truly be missed. Even now, it is hard to believe he is gone. He was such a wonderful man in all ways that mattered: A loving husband, father, brother, brother in law and Christian. One memory (there were so many) Fred, myself and Alex were truly touched beyond words that Ronnie and Tessie drove all the way from Michigan to Chapel Hill, NC to attend Alex's college graduation to be with our Family to celebrate. Their home, no matter where they traveled to, was always open to family, friends and loved ones. "Old Man" I will miss you more than you know. Rest in peace until we meet again.

Our Big Brother, he was one of the best. He was always ready to give us advice if needed or not. He took his job of big brother seriously. He will always be loved and missed by each and every one of the Reisinger clan. (Larry and Deanie Ballew, (his favorite youngest sister); Linda Merricks and Christina Wiseman, sister)

My brother-in-law Ronnie was one of the most caring persons I know. He loved his family unconditionally. He always made sure you felt welcome and loved in his home. We will miss him and will cherish our memories together forever. (Carol Smith (Smitthie) and David)
