– Andrew T. “Dutch” Reinisch, 73, passed away Thursday, August 6,
2020 with his loving family by his side. He was the son of the late
Melvin and Anna Reinisch.
Andrew was a graduate of R-C-S High School and a Veteran of the
US Navy serving during the Vietnam War. He worked at the Watervliet
Arsenal for 20 years as a machinist.
Those who knew Dutch, know that family was most important to
him. His fondest memories are those spent with his family at their
camp on Lake Champlain. He also enjoyed many hunting and fishing
trips with family and friends. Dutch also helped his son run their
local Maple Syrup business. You may have seen Dutch proudly
represent Crosstown Maple at the many local markets or venues where
he loved to spread his knowledge and passion for the process. Dutch
left his family with a legacy to be proud of. He was a jack of all
trades and shared all of his talents with his children. He was very
proud of all of them and loved them dearly.
Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Cynthia M. Reinisch;
children, Jennifer (Matt) Stein, Michael (Anda) Reinisch, Kevin
(Leslie) Reinisch and Thomas (Laura) Reinisch; grandchildren, Ryan,
Olivia and Lauren Stein, Patrick, Conor, Owen, Emma, Nora and Anna
Reinisch; and great-grandson, Colton Reinisch. Andrew was
predeceased by his brother, Thomas Reinisch.
