Mr. Reuter

Jack Reuter, dearly beloved husband of 55 years of Jan Reuter of El Dorado Hills passed away suddenly in Santa Rosa on April 17, 2008; loving father of Steve Reuter (Lee Ann), Rebecca Restrepo (Mark), Kim Foulger (Jeff) and Susan Wilkerson (Bruce); was a pillar of strength and family role model. Jack's courage in accepting new challenges, as well as his love of country and family inspired his children and leaves a clear legacy for not only his four children but also his ten grandchildren: Rachel, Laura, John, Eric, Kristin, Gavin, Chris, Chad, Casey and Courtney; and great granddaughter Tylie.

A native of Prescott, Ariz., age 75 years, Jack was a graduate of the University of Arizona, later serving in the Air Force as a Captain in the Strategic Air Command. Jack spent 20 years in the banking industry, as an Executive of Trust Departments in both Arizona and Santa Rosa. In 1981, he joined Merrill Lynch as a Financial Adviser and Vice President. He served as President of the Chamber of Commerce in Prescott, Ariz. and Santa Rosa, and was a member of Rotary for over 20 years. Jack's associates have distinguished him as "Gentleman Jack" for his remarkable grace and diplomacy. Jack enjoyed painting, genealogy, guitar and the great outdoors, especially golfing, hiking and camping, but what he loved most was spending time with his family. He was cherished and loved by his family, admired by his friends, and will be greatly missed by all.

Friends are invited to attend a funeral service at 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, 2008, at St Patrick's Episcopal Church, 9000 Sonoma Highway, Kenwood, Calif. Private Inurnment.

Donations in his memory may be made to Santa Rosa Rotary Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 505, Santa Rosa, CA 95402.
