Herman E. Reigelman

December 14, 1931 — May 26, 2023



Herman E. Reigelman, 91, formerly of Brookfield, Ohio, was received in the loving arms of his beloved Sally on Friday, May 26, 2023, while a patient in Briarfield Place, Boardman, Ohio, following a period of declining health.

Herman was born on December 14, 1931, in Greenville, Pennsylvania, a son to Waldo T. & Mae Elizabeth (Walker) Reigelman.

He graduated from Greenville High School in 1950. Shortly thereafter, he enlisted with the U.S. Army to help defend our flag and to keep our country free during the Korean Conflict. His most significant assignment was with the 1641 Company A Battery 426th Field Artillery Battalion. His decorations and citations include the Army occupation medal, Germany, and the National Defense Service Medal. He was honorably discharged from his duties with the rank of Corporal.

He fell in love with a gal by the name of Sally Ann McCullough. They married on December 30, 1954, and held hands for the next 67 years, until her passing in 2022.

Herman was an electrician by trade. He showcased his talents at Westinghouse, Sharon Steel, and General Motors, where he retired after dedicating over 30 years to the company.

He was a member of the Brookfield United Methodist Church; Past Master & Treasurer of Jerusalem Lodge #19 F&AM, Hartford, Ohio; Buhl Club Antique Model Train Club; and Antique Thrashers Association.

In his spare time, he enjoyed model railroading. However, tinkering in his workshop is what gave him the most joy.

Survivors include: sons, Timothy A. (Denise) Reigelman, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Robert J. (Michele) Reigelman, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Thomas E. (Linda) Reigelman, of Hubbard, Ohio; daughter, Sue (Michael) Hart, of Boardman; grandchildren, Rochelle Voorhees, Brooke (Sam) Smith, Sarah Hart, Shelby (Ian) Friend, Garrett Reigelman, Zachary Reigelman, Andrew Reigelman, & Blair Reigelman; and 5 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Sally; grandson; Colin Hart; and sister, Phyllis Hedglin.
