Ronald Riebel
Dr. Ronald L. Riebel, 75, New Bremen, died at 3:15 p.m. April 6, 2013, died following a brief illness, at his residence, while surrounded by his family.
He was born Sept. 1, 1937, in Columbus, to George Lewis and Frances (Hartman) Riebel.
Survivors include his son, Matthew (Laurie) Riebel of Dublin; a daughter, Julia (Dan) Sackett of Dade City, Fla.; grandchildren, James Riebel of San Diego, Calif., Megan Riebel of Dublin, Kyle Carey of St. Petersburg, Fla., Jessica Sackett of Dade City, Fla., Paige Riebel, Chase Riebel and Julia Riebel, all of Delaware; and a sister, Sandra "Amica" (Ralph Keys) Gomersall of Kansas City, Mo.
Dr. Riebel owned and operated his dental practice in New Bremen for 45 years with his very dedicated hygienist and staff. He was a graduate of The Ohio State University School of Dentistry. He was a charter member and active member of the New Bremen/New Knoxville Rotary Club, serving on many committees as a trustee and committee chair. He volunteered with Rotary International's Medicine Arm in Arms, traveling to Russia and Africa to provide dental services to the residents of remote areas. He had perfect attendance at weekly meetings since the NB/NK Rotary Club was chartered in 1989.
He was a member of American Legion Post 241, New Bremen, and a member of the New Bremen Rod and Gun Club, New Bremen Athletic Boosters, the Ohio Dental Association, the Ohio Gun Collectors Association and the Single Action Shooting Society. He was a life member of the NRA and the National Muzzle Loading Association.
He is a past Grand Marshal of the annual Bremenfest parade. He served with the U.S. Army from 1960 until 1962. He truly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, attending cowboy events, shooting and primitive camping.
A memorial service is 7 p.m. Wednesday at St. Paul United Church of Christ in New Bremen, the Rev. Becky Erb Strang officiating.
The family will receive friends one hour prior to services and directly following the services at a reception in the Assembly Room in the Educational Building of St. Paul U.C.C.
