Mr. Harold “Harry” Reinhardt of Nashville departed this life at the Washington County Hospital in Nashville on Monday, March 30, 2015 at 7:20 p.m. He had attained the age of 82 years, three months and 24 days.

Harry was born in Plum Hill Township, Washington County on December 6, 1932, the son of Martin and Ella (Nagel) Reinhardt. He was united in marriage to Shirley McClay at Oakdale on August 18, 1956 and she survives his passing.

Harry was a 1951 graduate of Nashville Community High School and was employed as the purchasing agent for the National Mine Service Company in Nashville from 1952 until the plant’s closure in 1983. He was then elected as Washington County Circuit Clerk in 1984, serving until his retirement in 1996. Harry was also a member of the Nashville City Council from 1967 to 1984 and again from 1994 until 2009, serving as Mayor Pro Tem and Acting Mayor for many of those years. He was also one of the three original members of the Nashville Golf Board that was charged with the construction of the Nashville Municipal Golf Course. He was a member of St. Paul United Church of Christ in Nashville and was also a former member of the Nashville Jaycees, Nashville Lions Club and the Monday Night Golf League. Harry enjoyed watching all sports, especially Cardinal baseball, and was most fond of playing golf with his group of friends. Many of the world’s problems were solved on the 19th hole after those rounds.

Also surviving his passing are his daughter, Amy Schroeder and her husband Bill of St. Charles, Mo.; his son, John Reinhardt and his wife Beth of Springfield; two granddaughters, Abigail and Natalie Schroeder of St. Charles, Mo.; other relatives and a host of friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Raymond and Richard Reinhardt and a grandson, James Schroeder.
