Charles (“Chuck”) Addison Rheinhardt, 73, passed away suddenly at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday November 16th. He was surrounded by family and amazing nurses for his entire stay at Brigham and Women’s. He was originally from Chatham, NJ but spent the last 40 years of his life as a staple in the Bow, NH community. He leaves behind his wife, Nancy, whom he loved dearly, and shared 50 years of marriage with. He also leaves behind his two children, Krista Rheinhardt Butts of Lee, her husband Jeff, and three children Tyler, Kyle, and Ryan; and his son Brent Rheinhardt of Bow, his wife Megan, and their two children Wyatt and Myles. Chuck adored his family near and far and his family will miss him dearly including his sister, Peggy (Rheinhardt) Littlejohn of FL, brother, Paul Rheinhardt of New Hampton, NH; brother-in-law Bill Grebs of Cocoa Beach, FL; niece Susan (Littlejohn) Berry of Atlanta, GA; and nephews Scott Littlejohn of Boston, MA and Paul Rheinhardt of New Hampton, NH.
Charles was employed at Verani Real Estate until his death and loved to hunt, fish, garden, golf and spend time outdoors. He also cherished his Friday Night Fiascos with the Stafford family. His favorite activity, by far, was traveling to watch his five grandsons play sports. He and his wife traveled, many times per week, all over the northern region to watch their grandsons, often taking in more than one sporting event a day. He loved hunting with his grandsons and just being in their presence. He was an amazing grandfather and father and has left his family with amazing memories. He was a coach and community volunteer for the Town of Bow for 40 years, an active member in the Bow Athletic Association, The Bow Rotary, The Passaconaway Club, and the Concord Country Club.
A celebration of life open house will be held on December 4th, at the Bow Community Center, from 3-7pm. We invite all to come and share stories with the family. Chuck’s favorite times were spending time with his family and friends, and we intend to celebrate him with an event he will be proud of. He will be so incredibly missed. In lieu of flowers, please send your favorite beverage to toast Chuck and share a story.
