Robert Neil Rinehart

October 9, 1939 - June 6, 2022

Robert Neil Rinehart, age 82, a resident of Cape Coral, FL, passed away peacefully at home June 6, 2022 with his wife by his side.

Bob was born October 9, 1939 in Clearfield, PA to Olive Rinehart and subsequently moved with his family to Niagara Falls, NY where he grew up.

In the early 1960’s, he and his close buddies set out for California to seek their fortunes.  There, Bob attended Pasadena Junior College while working full time.  Always looking for better opportunities, Bob became an estimator for several large commercial construction companies in Washington State and Alaska. He later owned and operated a successful steel fabrication enterprise, Totem Steel, in Woodinville, WA.

In 2000, the new millennium, Bob retired, sold the business and relocated to Landenberg, PA to marry his long time friend, Marjorie Beachy.  He enjoyed many years traveling to Europe, cruising the Caribbean, visiting old friends, playing cards and playing the ponies. In 2008, Bob and Margie bought a condo in Cape Coral and became “snow birds”.  When travel became too difficult, the couple decided to become full time residents of Florida enjoying the sunny weather and each other’s company.

Robert is survived by his wife of 22 years, Marjorie Beachy, his son, Dr. David M. Rinehart, his stepsons, John Beachy and wife Carol, Glenn Beachy and wife Christine, and five step grandchildren, many cousins and friends.  He was predeceased by his son Michael Rinehart.

The family wishes to thank Hope Hospice for their caring support and suggest that donations be made to them in Robert’s memory. (Hope Hospice, 9470 Healthpark Cir., Fort Myers, FL 33908).

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.

    Margie, so sorry for your loss. Even though I didn’t know Bob until a time when his health was declining, he was always friendly and made me feel welcome in your home, I’m sure he will be sorrily missed by many. You are in my prayers as well as Bob. Your reunion in heaven will be glorious! Hugs,

    Chère Marge,
    Je suis désolé d’apprendre le décès de votre mari. Je me souviens quand il est revenu dans votre vie et que vous avez été absolument étourdi avec ses manières généreuses, amusantes et réfléchies. C’était quelqu’un à qui vous aviez toujours pensé affectueusement comme un ami. Il était évident qu’il allait changer votre vie d’une manière merveilleuse. Je prie pour qu’il n’ait pas souffert et que vous soyez entouré d’amis et de membres de votre famille pour vous aider à surmonter cette perte.

    I will forever remember Bob and his happy disposition. I am grateful for all of the times spent at the card table and sharing family meals. He demonstrated the importance of knowing family members and including the next generations. I am sorry for your loss, Marge, and the family’s loss, and pray God will comfort you.

    Marge, I don’t know what to say, except that I am so sorry for your loss. After over sixty years of friendship and shared memories it’s hard to come to terms with Bob’s passing. You both were so good to me after Ed died and even though we didn’t see each other much it was enough to know that you were only a phone call away and the connection formed so many years ago was strong and durable. Bob will always be in my heart and prayers and I will always be a phone call away if you need me. I love you and I know the Lord will be with you to give you comfort and the joy you so richly deserve.
