Chris Michael Reichert, 55, Lexington, Ky., passed away unexpectedly Feb. 24, 2013.
He is survived by his love and best friend, Kathy Collins; daughter, Sara Reichert (Brian) Murrell; son, Waylon (ChVonne) Reichert; grandchildren, Breckon and Brooks Reichert; brothers, Steve (Patricia) Reichert and Michael (Frannye) Reichert; niece, Erin Reichert; and nephews, Zachary, Zane, Zebedee and Zekiel Reichert, all of Ohio.

He had a big heart full of love for his family, who loved him as much. He will be missed and fondly remembered by the Collins family.
Graduating Celina High School in 1975 and Heidelberg University in 1979 and inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame for both, he still holds basketball records at Heidelberg for career high field goals made and attempted and rebounds and is third all-time leading scorer. He also was named two-time all-Ohio Athletic Conference. Until recently, he held the Division II baseball career strikeout record. He was a longtime loyal employee of Reynolds & Reynolds.
Calling is 12:30-2:30 p.m. Thursday at Kerr Brothers Funeral Home, Lexington, Ky., followed by a brief service. Entombment will be private.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Jessamine Humane Society. Chris will forever be loved and his memory cherished.
