Gordon Dean Rinehart

August 24, 1953 ‒ April 06, 2020

Fredericktown, Ohio

Gordon “Dean” Rinehart, age 66, of Fredericktown, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 6, 2020.  He was born on August 24, 1953 in Mount Vernon, Ohio the son of Lester and Doris (Singrey) Rinehart.  Dean was a 1971 graduate of Highland High School.

From the very beginning Dean was mechanically inclined and loved to work. His first job was working for local farmers and while in high school he worked at local gas stations. In 1970 at the age of 17, Dean started employment with Kokosing Construction Company as a mechanic’s helper. In 1973, he joined the Ohio Operating Engineers Local 18 as an apprentice. Dean spent his entire career at Kokosing helping build and grow the Equipment Maintenance Division.  A good day for Dean was when the equipment was up and running and everyone was working.  This is what drove Dean.  Dean was well respected by the construction equipment manufacturing industry and was often asked to help them find the solution to a problem. He was a hands on leader. He drove thousands of miles and worked long days so he could be on the job to help his co-workers.  Throughout Dean’s career equipment changed and he went from using a wrench and a sledge to the age of electronics and laptops. He embraced this technology and helped many others learn it.  In October 2017 after 47 years at Kokosing, Dean unloaded his service truck and started retirement.

Work was important to Dean, but his family was always first.  He was a great son, husband, father and Papaw.  Dean and Marsha enjoyed spending time at home, traveling and working together on the many projects they did around their house. He loved the many conversations he would have with his sons and the special times he could help them with projects at their homes. His daughter in-laws were the daughters he never had.  Again, if they had a project or just wanted advice he was there.  His favorite time was spent with his grandkids having fun, teaching and playing with them.  He loved helping them learn to use their hands to make things. As soon as they could walk he would take them to his shop and he would put a wrench or a hammer in their tiny hands. He wanted to teach them the importance of learning to use their hands to fix things.  If there was an opportunity to be with his grandkids he would drop everything.  He also took great pleasure in supporting friends and family with whatever he could help with.

He is survived by his loving wife Marsha (Burgett) Rinehart, whom he married on April 7, 1979; two sons, Greg (Kelly) Rinehart of Burton, Ohio and Geoff (Sarah) Rinehart of Galena; his precious grandchildren, Madison Rinehart, Reagan Rinehart, Granger Rinehart and Grady Rinehart; four brothers, David (Kathy) Rinehart of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Dennis Rinehart of Fredericktown, Doug (Melanie) Rinehart of Centerburg and Dana (Kellie) Rinehart of Bellville, Mother in-law Shirley (Ackerman) Burgett, Brian (Sherri) Burgett, Barth (Sarah) Burgett, Janenne Burgett, Jim Matusik as well as many nieces and nephews.

Dean was preceded in death by his father (2008), his mother (2018) and father in-law (2016), sister in-law Valerie Matusik & brother in-law Brad Burgett.

Due to the current pandemic, the family will observe a private graveside service in North Fork Cemetery near Waterford.  You can view this service live at the Snyder Funeral Home Fredericktown Chapel Facebook page beginning on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 2 p.m.  The Snyder Funeral Home of Fredericktown is honored to serve the family of G. Dean Rinehart.

Dean understood the importance of education for Mechanics in the Construction field.  A scholarship has been established in his name for young individuals entering the equipment repair field.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Knox County Foundation in memory of Dean and mailed to: P.O. Box 309, Mount Vernon, OH  43050.

  • This man will be missed by so many and in so many ways. Dean was a leader, someone I looked up to and aspired to be more like. Dean led by example and worked hard to accomplish all he could in a day’s time, never stopping until every task was completed. He was a teacher, wanting everyone to excel and be the best they could be. He made me slow down and think things through, to search things out and use my mind instead of jumping to conclusions. More than anything, Dean was a friend. He cared about me and always asked how my family and I were doing. From the outside Dean looked strong, burly, a manly man, and he was. But just below the surface, he was kind, considerate, concerned and loving. Everything that you’d want a true friend to be.

    Marsha, I cannot begin to imagine what you are going through. I want you to know that our family will be praying for you. May the peace that only God can offer be with you and comfort you and your family.

  • For Dean’s Family
    I knew when Dean was in my first grade class that he would be very successful. His work habits and sincere way of presenting himself was always his best. It was a joy for me to watch Dean ‘grow’ throughout the years. He will be missed by many. And this teacher will hold him in her heart as one of the best. May God’s arms be a comfort to all of you.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May his legacy continue through those he taught.

  • Rinehart Family:
    Sending thoughts and prayers. May you be drawn closer to the Lord and lean on Him in this time of great loss.

  • Greg and Family,

    I am so saddened to hear of Dean’s passing. My heart and prayers are with you all. May God grant you strength and peace during this time!

    We are heartbroken when we heard the news. Dean was a wonderful man. Big heat who loved life, family and friends. Maei and I were so blessed to get to know him over the years on various holidays with your family and through the OCA trips. Cherished memories! Will miss his big smile! He left an impact on us all!
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

    Love Phil & Maei

  • Marsha & Family,
    We are so sorry to hear of Dean’s passing. He was such a great guy and will long be an inspiration for those in our industry. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Dear Marsha and Family,
    So sorry for your loss. Dean was a very special man and will be missed by so many. When I graduated with him, little did I know that my son Craig would work for him. I remember he said mom he’s a nice guy.Dean was respected by so many and his legacy speaks volumes. May God bless you all through this difficult time.
