LeRoy 'Roy' Reuter

Manassas, VA - LeRoy "Roy" Reuter, 85, formerly of Hudson, passed away on September 13, 2020, in Manassas, Virginia, surrounded by family.

Roy was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on December 8, 1934, the only son of parents Adam and Evelyn (Hasselback) Reuter. Raised in Cincinnati, he earned an undergraduate degree in civil engineering from the University of Cincinnati and his PhD from the University of Oklahoma. He proudly served over twenty years in the U.S. Army, retiring in 1979 as a Lieutenant Colonel, after which he continued his career as an environmental engineer in the private sector, residing in Hudson, Ohio for over thirty years. He was for many years in leadership positions at Hudson's First Congregational Church and the nearby Twin Lakes Country Club. An avid and accomplished golfer, he was an enthusiastic fan of college and professional sports, and a bit of a "foodie," but loved most spending time with family.

He was predeceased by his loving wife, Ellen Klein Reuter, who passed in August, 2014, and son-in-law Daniel Houle. He is survived by son Brad Reuter, and wife Nancy (Brandgard), of Bedford, Ohio, and their children Aileen and Theresa; son Dean Reuter, and wife Lou Anne (Traini), of Bristow, Virginia, and their children Taylor and Hannah; and daughter Rachel Reuter of Prosper, Texas, and her daughter Sydney, as well as eight great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

In the near future, a small memorial service will be held at the First Congregational Church in Hudson, Ohio, after which he will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery with full military funeral honors.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in the name of Roy Reuter to the Association of the United States Army, Arlington, Virginia.
