On Thursday, April 1, 2021, Joseph Reiner, Jr., a long-time resident of Chicago and Lake Villa, Illinois, passed away at age 82. Joe was born on August 21, 1938 in Chicago, Illinois to Joseph and Catherine (Demes) Reiner. He attended technical school for typesetting and started his career at Howell Typesetting. After running his own typesetting business, Classic Typographers, Inc., for many years he enjoyed a long retirement starting at age 55. On June 21, 1969, he married Carol Schultz. They raised three daughters and two sons. Joe was a jack of all trades. He completely remodeled his two houses from top to bottom and always had a project going on his workbench. He loved spending time with his beloved late wife, Carol, his family and extended family, and hearing the noise of all his grandchildren around the house. Long known for his strong Catholic faith, he served as an usher at Prince of Peace Catholic Church for many years. He was a mentor for many, and his honor knew no bounds. He was known for his perseverance, great wisdom, his unique laugh, and stubborn nature. Joe leaves his five children, Laura (Art), Lisa (Ryan), Jennifer (Rob), Joseph (Dianna), Curtis (Jennifer); and his 14 grandchildren: Nick, Jeff, Samantha, Luke, Avin, Bryan, Amya, Logan, Ayla, Abigail, Joey, Alyn, Kayla, and Evelyn.
