Charles William “Bill” Reigle, Jr.

Paxtonville, PA

Charles William “Bill” Reigle, Jr., 100, of Paxtonville, entered eternal rest on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at Evangelical Community Hospital. 

Bill was born on November 7, 1922, in Paxtonville, a son of the late Charles William and Clara Gertrude (Hill) Reigle, Sr.  On June 29, 1951, Bill married the love of his life, Mae (Naylor) Reigle, who survives.  Bill and Mae shared 72 years of marriage and a lifetime of milestones and precious memories.

After graduating from high school, Bill graduated from Eckels College of Embalming and Mortuary Science School in Philadelphia where he became a licensed funeral director and later enlisted in the United States Navy.

Bill was employed by his father and alongside his brother, Bob, at their family business, C. W. Reigle & Sons Feed Mill in Paxtonville.  He and Bob also operated Beavertown Poultry.  They raised and dressed turkeys and were the main supplier of turkeys to The Dutch Pantry Restaurant chain.  Bill was also a funeral director/supervisor at the George P. Garman Funeral Homes, Inc., for many years, retiring at the age of 94.

Bill enjoyed trapping, hunting, fishing, and woodworking.  He especially enjoyed spending time taking car rides with Mae, and later, going for breakfast and taking car rides with their special friend, Deb, to view the local scenery.

Bill is survived by his loving wife, Mae; several nieces and nephews; and Mae and Bill’s special friend, Deborah Shambach.

He is preceded in passing by his parents; son, Zane Richard Naylor; brother, Bob Reigle; and sisters, Margaret Lipscomb and Alice Conrad.
