Obituary: Jerry L. Reha (Feb. 1, 1955 - Nov. 19, 2012)

Jerry L. Reha passed away November 19, 2012, in his home in Selma, Ore., surrounded by his family. He was born February 1, 1955, to Frank Sr. and Hope (Ives) Reha in Crescent City, and graduated from Del Norte High School.

Jerry worked in the woods for most of his life as a faller and a wildlands firefighter. He was recently employed with Marty’s Tree Service.

Jerry loved his home in Selma and the beautiful Illinois Valley. He enjoyed time with his daughters, family gatherings, his gardens, riding his motorcycle and playing music with friends. He played guitar and was especially gifted at woodworking, including restoring antiques and creating beautiful antique replicas. Throughout his life, he always had a dog by his side and had a great deal of compassion for animals.

Jerry is survived by his daughters, Chelsea Reha of Ashland, Ore.; Molly Pearcey and grandson, Gavin Cochrane of Crescent City; mother, Hope Reha of Jacksonville, Ore.; brothers, Frank Reha, Jr. (Sally Smart) of Crescent City and Chris (Kelly) Reha and nieces, Sydney and Alexis Reha of Jacksonville, Ore.; and nephew, Mitchell Reha of Portland, Ore.

He was preceded in death by his father, Frank Reha, Sr.

Jerry will be greatly missed. He brought humor, music and kindness to all of those around him.

Family and friends will gather for a celebration of life in the near future.
