In Loving Memory
Thomas A. Reisinger, Sr.
8/24/1951 - 2/12/2011





Thomas A. Reisinger, Sr., 59, of R.D. #2 Oil City and of Arbor Circle Apartments, Franklin, died at 7:20am on Saturday, February 12, 2011 at UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh, after a brief and sudden illness.


 Born August 24, 1951, in Oil City.  He was the son of the late Sylvester A. and Margaret Flockerzi Reisinger.


 Graduating from Cranberry High School and Venango Vo-Tech in 1970, he worked at the Continental Can Co. during high school.  Following high school, he worked for several years at Astro Manufacturing in Shippenville.  He then started a business with his father known as Reisinger Hauling, which he continued with, until an injury forced him to seek other employment. 


 He then worked as a cabinet maker with Kahle’s Kitchens in Leeper until his retirement.  To busy himself, he transported cars for Crivelli Auto in Franklin and continued his interest in bowling, a life-long sport he enjoyed.  His other interests included attending car shows, taking drives, listening to country music, watching football, dirt-track racing and NASCAR. His greatest concern and love was for his children and grandchildren.   He and his youngest daughter were planning a trip to Disney in September. 


 Tom had a great love of people and made friends wherever he went, and could put a smile on anyone’s face.  He was always ready to lend a hand to others and was known for his giving ways.  Tom will be dearly missed by his family and friends. 


 Surviving are four children: a son, Thomas A Reisinger, Jr. and his wife Stacy of Rimersburg; three daughters, Heather Reisinger and Stacy Martin, both of Franklin, and Kayla Reisinger of Knox.  Five grandchildren include Nathan Martin, Kiara Platt, Jocelyn Zacheral, Adrionna Reisinger, and Michael Reisinger; a sister Rose Adams and husband Craig of Cranberry.  Also surviving are a nephew, Aaron Pertz of Rockmere; a niece, Janel Hanna of Cranberry; and a great-niece and great-nephew, Kaiti and Kyle Hanna of Cranberry. His former wives, Mary Reisinger and Stacy Hartle survive; and a number of aunts, uncles and cousins.


 He was preceded in death by his parents, and his maternal and paternal grandparents. 


 Friends will be received Wednesday (Feb. 16th) from 3 - 7 p.m. in the Hile-Best Funeral Home, Inc., 2781 Rte. 257 in Seneca, Cranberry Township.  Funeral services will be held in the funeral home Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. with Pastor Trevor Hanna, officiating.


 The family suggests that memorial donations be made to the Hile-Best Funeral Home, PO Box 245, Seneca, PA 16346, to help defray funeral expenses.

It's hard to know that this past summer when you visited was our last time together. I will miss your phone calls and pic's that you would send. Sorry we could not be there for you and for Rose. I am sure you'll see my dad again sooner than I, since he passed on too, much too soon. Lynda and I send love and prayers to you all. John, your cousin from CT.

was shocked to see Tom's passing, just seems like the other day that I ran into this friend of my son Mike's who turned out to be a friend of mine from school, who also knew my Dad. We had a NICE visit that nite, & he also found out he knew my daughter Crystal also. Tom was a wonderful guy both in school & even YEARS later seeing him again. We chatted from time to time on Facebook & had laughs about CHS. He will be greatly missed. Safe a seat for me Tom next to my Dad & you. Deepest Condolences & Sympathy to his family. Debbie
