Donald B. Reichert
-- 1943 ~ 2010 --

Donald Brent Reichert of Pleasant Grove, Utah passed away at home at age 67 on August 12, 2010 having dealt with cancer for many years. Born February 28, 1943 in Salt Lake City, the youngest of three children born to Roland William Reichert and Helen Meibos Reichert. He grew up primarily in Salt Lake City but also had many fond memories of his young childhood living in St. George.

Sealed to Leslie Irene Burt in the Salt Lake LDS temple. They built their first home in the South Cottonwood area, then looking for a small community in which to raise their children they built a home in Alpine, Utah. Following council to stay out of debt they built their home as far along as they could, moved into the shell, and then finished it as finances would allow. He had a love of gardening and took great pride in their fruit trees. They later built homes in Lindon and finally Pleasant Grove.

Don spent virtually all his working years involved in the masonry industry beginning by loading trucks at the age of 17. He worked his way through manufacturing, sales, Executive Director of the Utah Masonry Contractors Association and left the industry as recipient of the industry's Meritorious Service Award. He was always looking for ways to collect bricks from historical places to add to his small collection. He and Leslie were also involved for many years in the apartment rental business. He took great satisfaction in his work and appreciated the many wonderful people and true friendships he developed over the years.

He had a firm and abiding testimony of the gospel and served in many callings such as ordinance worker in the Mount Timpanogos temple and missionary with his wife at the Mormon Historic Handcart sites in Wyoming. Another highlight was working with the youth in student wards at BYU. He also had joy in helping those who had difficulty helping themselves.

He is survived by his wife Leslie, children, Brent (Deanna), Christine (Kelly), Paul (Linda), Pamela (Richard), Annette (Matthew), sister Joan Baldwin, brother Roland (Sherry) twenty three grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter Lindsey Lent. Don and Leslie were truly blessed with the greatest family they could ever have had and love them for their constant help and support.

We would like to thank all our many friends, neighbors, and family for their expressions of love and kindness.
