Darryl Reindl

Darryl Lee Reindl was born Jan. 18, 1950, in Wessington Springs, S.D., to LeRoy and Ellen (Meis) Reindl. The family moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1958 to build a ranching operation. He graduated from Custer High School in 1968.
He married Janet Pettit, his high school sweetheart, and they settled in Custer, S.D., where they raised their family. He joined Continental Telephone Company (now Golden West) in 1970 and served them until he retired in 2005 to ranching and chasing grandchildren. He excelled at both. He earned an associate of arts in accounting from Black Hills State University in 1992 and loved to play the stock market, much to the consternation of his financial advisor.
Darryl believed in giving back and gave his time and talent to the Custer City Council, school district and hospital board, as well as the Western Junior Livestock Show. He also mentored a number of young people in the cattle business, who became part of his extended family.
Darryl died surrounded by his family Feb. 24, 2020, of complications from pulmonary fibrosis. He was 70.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Lynette.
Darryl is survived by his wife of 51 years, Janet, of Spearfish, S.D.; four children,  Staci (Tom) Baloun of Spearfish, Travis of Washington, D.C., Sara (Chad) Thompson of Wessington Springs, S.D.; and Tamara (Shawn) Kerns of Rapid City, S.D.; eight grandchildren, Alli, Benjamin, JD, Jack, Maci, Tucker, Brodand Sawyer; and nine siblings, Kathy, Wanda, Judy, Lyle, Tim, Marge, Kevin, Leanne and Mike.  
A prayer service will be held at 6 p.m. March 2 at Custer Lutheran Fellowship. Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. March 3 at Custer Lutheran Fellowship with Pastor Pam Power and Deacon Laura Lee Campbell presiding; refreshments will follow and interment will be at Custer Cemetery.
