It is with a heavy heart that I pass along the information of the passing of Dave Reinhartsen. Dave passed this past Saturday. In 2015 the Antique Outboard Motor Club Incorporated awarded Dave a plaque at the International Tomahawk meet stating that he is the founder of the club back in 1965. Here is the email I received.  

Dear Antique Outboarder Club:

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Dave Reinhartsen, One of the founding fathers of The Antique Outboard Motor Club, passed yesterday afternoon and is resting now in the hands of our Lord. You were on his list of people to notify at the time of his death. Please know he loved this Club and was so proud to be a part of it’s history.

Gail is mourning as would be expected and taking one day at a time. But feel free to contact her to express your condolences.

In Lieu of flowers Dave has requested the following. If you know Dave well you will have a final laugh with him. “Please donate to a charity of your choice, borrow flowers from another funeral or pick some up at the nearest cemetery.” We will miss his humor!!!!

Thank you,

Family of Dave Reinhartsen
