Former Grand President William J. Reinert Enters the Castle EternalIt is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Brother William J. Reinert on Saturday, August 27, 2016. 

Brother Reinert joined Sigma Phi Delta in 1955 and graduated from Delta Chapter at the University of Illinois in 1957.

Over the years, Bill made numerous contributions to the success of the fraternity. He served as the 9th Grand President of Sigma Phi Delta from 1982 until 1988, then served a final term as Grand President from 1990 to 1991. During his time in this role, he resisted numerous merger overtures from Theta Tau and Triangle. He helped establish Phi Chapter at South Dakota State University and took part in the installation of Upsilon Chapter at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Brother Reinert also took on vital roles within the SPD Board of Trustees and was one of the charter directors on the Board of Directors of the Sigma Phi Delta Foundation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Bill and his family as he enters the Castle Eternal. His contribution and devotion to SPD was significant in making the fraternity what it is today. We offer our condolences to brother Reinert’s wife Joan, his son and fellow Brother William T. Reinert ’81 (Delta Chapter), and family. A copy of his obituary can be found here.
