John Robert, the son of Robert and Pearl (Haugh) Reint was born on June 22, 1944 in Faribault. He graduated from Faribault High School with the class of 1962. He was a member of Plumbers Union Local 6 for 44 years, working mostly in southern Minnesota, until his retirement in 2006. On April 2, 1993 John married the love of his life, Cindy Lambert in Las Vegas, NV. John loved his cabin life, yearly trips to Mexico, taking his dog Monique on daily walks and Miller Lite. John worked hard and played hard. He lived a happy and fulfilling life.

The worry that we have felt watching John struggle through this terrible disease has now been replaced with a deep feeling of loss, knowing that we will never see his smiling face again. John's struggles have ended, he is finally at peace. We will miss his contagious smile, his entertaining sense of humor and his good rhythm on the dance floor. Goodbye John, we love you and miss you dearly.

Left to treasure the memories are his wife Cindy Reint of Faribault, MN; children, Jake (Stephanie) Reint of St. Paul, MN, Sarah (Mark) Buhrandt of Faribault, MN, Andy (Jamie) Campbell of Apple Valley, MN and Matt (Betsie) Campbell of Burnsville, MN; by five grandchildren, Zoey and Frankie Buhrandt and Emma, Grace and Tommy Campbell; by two sisters, Kay (Larry) Herrman of Phoenix, AZ and Janna (W.W.) Johnson of Carefree, AZ; by sisters-in-law and special friends, Kim (Ken) Favro of Faribault, MN and Rhonda (Greg) Truax of Faribault, MN; brother-in-law, Jeff Lambert of Faribault, MN; by his mother-in-law, Lois (Jack) Hewitt of Lady Lake, FL and by many special nieces and nephews and his dog Monique.
